Route 66 Classic, Joliet, IL

by Mauverneen

Sometimes, you don't have to travel far from home to find fun stuff.

I'm partial to old Buicks
I like classic cars and I like old cars, so I thought I would check out the D'Arcy Route 66 Classic last weekend (August 19, 2017) at the Rt. 66 Raceway. The raceway is part of a complex that consists of the dragstrip, a dirt oval, and the Chicagoland Nascar Track.  Billed as a "tribute to all things vintage" I thought I would check it out. I'm glad I went!

Not only were there cars, cars cars! but music of the '50's and '60's, drag races, vendors and a Miss Pin Up contest filled out the day.
