Legends car racing is a “spec” series in which all cars are mechanically identical and are designed primarily to promote exciting racing and lower costs. The bodies are 5/8-scale replicas of American automobiles from the 1930s and ‘40s that are powered by 140-horsepower Yamaha motorcycle engines. Legends cars weigh 1,300 pounds, are 10½ feet in length and cost approximately $12,000.
