High Plains Raceway was the setting for the race weekend that drew 140 entries of a wide rage of race cars at the beginning of August — yeah, yeah… it is a bit delayed due to developing and scanning film. Why shoot film? I’m still struggling with that honestly. Look for a full race report in the Nov/Dec 2020 of Vintage Motorsport.
