It was a cool evening, but this youngster found a perfect spot, sitting snugly in the cockpit of a sprint car with heat radiating from a
fuel-injected mega-horsepower engine after running at speed on a high-banked quarter mile paved oval.
However, there is much more to this story as to why this race fan is so bright eyed. You see, the driver that just climbed from the cockpit is Parnelli Jones,
1963 Indy 500 winner and special guest of honor at the All American Vintage Classic at All American Speedway in Roseville, California.
Yes, the future of our sport certainly looks bright.
The All American Vintage classic will return to Roseville on September 14th and 15th, 2007.
