The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing near York Springs, Pa., opened its restored Latimore Valley Fairgrounds race track to antique and vintage race cars Saturday as part of the annual Latimore Valley Fair. About 30 sprint cars, stocks, modifieds, roadsters, midgets, and others took part. Here are some highlights.
Today the track at Latimore Valley features cars going at carefully controlled lower speeds, but in its original life, this was Latimore Speedway with auto races drawing fans from throughout the area between Harrisburg and Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, as this 1938 newspaper ad shows.
