HSR Joins Bank of America ROVAL™ 400

NASCAR’s wildcard weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway will feature the past and present as the Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) NASCAR Classic presented by Petty’s Garage Series joins Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 race week.

The HSR NASCAR Classic will be part of HSR’s new series featuring the growing Group 8 Historic Stock Cars division within the HSR community and competitors. Fans will be able to see some of their favorite retired stock cars back in active competition as each car in the NASCAR Classic series must meet previous NASCAR rule book specifications for Cup, Xfinity, Truck and ARCA competition.

“What better way to spice up NASCAR’s wildcard weekend than to bring some throwback race cars and put them on the ROVAL™ this October,” said Charlotte Motor Speedway President Greg Walter. “Fans will love seeing some of the old school paint schemes at Charlotte again and we’re proud to host Historic Sportscar Racing for the first time. It’s yet another reason we are America’s Home for Racing.”

On-track schedules for the Oct. 11-12 HSR NASCAR Classic at CMS will be released at a later date. The CMS event is part of a three-race series with prior events at Virginia International Raceway (Aug. 23-24) and Watkins Glen International (Sept. 13-14).

The stockcars eligible to compete in the series must carry authentic and period-correct liveries previously seen in NASCAR competition over the years. Current editions of the rules-eligible cars in each series, such as the Cup series Generation 7 chassis, are not eligible in NASCAR Classic competition. Each round will feature a maximum of 30 selected entries by HSR for each round of the 2024’s HSR NASCAR Classic presented by Petty’s Garage.

“NASCAR stock cars of all generations are perhaps the most identifiable category of race cars in the U.S. to motorsports enthusiasts, competitors and even mainstream audiences,” said HSR President Chris Ward. “The across-the-board support, and the rapid growth of the HSR Classic Stock Cars category made starting a dedicated series around the division an easy decision.”

In addition to the HSR NASCAR Classic, NASCAR’s wildcard weekend on the ROVAL™ at Charlotte Motor Speedway features the Drive for the Cure 250 presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff race and the Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 NASCAR Cup Series playoff race. The ROVAL™ is the most unique track on the NASCAR circuit, combining a world-class infield road course with Charlotte Motor Speedway’s legendary oval. Drivers will battle 17 turns and a 35-foot elevation change over the 2.28-mile course with berths to the next round of the playoffs on the line in both the Xfinity and Cup Series.
