Muscle Cars, Can Am, Trans Am, Le Mans cars and more make up the 300 cars competing in eight vintage races on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th.

You will spend almost no time looking at an empty track. Each morning there is a full slate of qualifying, and starting right at lunch time, through dusk, there is non-stop racing. The paddock is fully open, and all the drivers and mechanics are happy to talk to you about their cars.

The David Love Memorial Races are the season opener for CSRG Racing, Northern California’s premier Vintage racing organization. The late David Love and his friends started CSRG, the Classic Sports Racing Group, in 1968. It provided a home for cars that were loved by their drivers but were not competitive in the disposable world of contemporary club racing. Through the efforts of David and the other early pioneers in the sport, 50 years later, CSRG is now 500 members strong, with four races a year, and is an established leader in vintage competition. CSRG focuses on great racing and keeping vintage and historic cars as original as possible. Learn more.
