US Legends Race Cars

It was in April of 1992 that the first INEX Legends Race Cars were unveiled at the Lowe's Motor Speedway.  The concept of creating a fun and affordable "spec" class of racing for anyone to participate in was born.  President and General Manager of LMS, H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler and Elliott Forbes-Robinson, famed road racing champion, designed these 5/8 scale fiberglass full-fendered versions of the famed NASCAR modifieds driven by legendary drivers such as Fireball Roberts, Bucky Baker, Curtis Turner, Speedy Thompson and Banjo Matthews.

Since that time, the Legends Cars have become one of the the fastest growing segments of motorsports today.  With drivers being classified into four different divisions, Legends Cars are THE racing opportunity tat is available to anyone!  The Pro Division is for the experienced drivers.

The Masters Division features drivers 40 years and older.  The Semi-Pro Division is the novice class, featuring the drivers that are new to the sport or have been iactive in other forms of racing for a while.  Then there is the Young Lions Division, which is designated for the drivers between the ages of 12 and 16.  Since the car stays the same from division to division, it is the driver that makes the difference.
