American Racing Drivers Club Reunion Scheduled for September 9, 2018
Warren, N.J.– An American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) Reunion, first suggested on the Back in the Day with ARDC Facebook page earlier this year, has been scheduled for Sunday, September 9, 2018, to be held in conjunction with the annual Warren Township, New Jersey, Car Show.
The Reunion, planned as an informal gathering of participants and fans, will take place alongside the long-established car show on the grounds of the Warren Township Municipal Grounds, located at 46 Mountain Blvd., Warren, NJ 07059. Both the car show and the Reunion will take place between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, rain or shine.
Spearheaded by past ARDC Presidents Ken Brenn (1969-1970) and Ron Lauer (1986-1989 and 2005-2008), the Reunion will be open to all interested persons, be they drivers, car owners, crew members, officials, or fans. Because the Warren show typically includes a wide assortment of vintage race cars, it is a "natural" for the Reunion, and owners of vintage Midget race cars are encouraged to bring their machines to the event.
No formal activities are planned; just a casual day of socializing with friends and colleagues from the long history of the organization, which was founded in 1939. ARDC counts among its participants through the years a diverse array of racing talent ranging from Formula One World Champion Mario Andretti to Sprint car legend Jan Opperman. A substantial number of ARDC race winners went on to compete at Indianapolis.
Further details, including nearby hotel accommodations for those traveling a great distance, will be announced in the weeks to come. In the meantime, put Sunday, September 9 on your calendar for the American Racing Drivers Club Reunion.
