Next Up: WeatherTech Int'l Challenge
We're less than four weeks away from the WeatherTech International Challenge at Road America. We'll have two cars at the 2017 edition, both celebrating their 40th birthdays.
On-track, our 1977 All American Racers Eagle DGF will compete in the Historic Club Ford category, while our 1977 Leyland Mini 1000 will compete on the streets in the Saturday night street-car Concours d'Elegance. [Eagle photo courtesy of SCCA Chicago Region]
