Dow Smith joins the podcast to discuss Lime Rock Park's successful Historic Festival. The festival, which traditionally marks the close of the summer weekend with one of the most significant gatherings of vintage race cars in the Northeast, was held this year in face of all the challenges that 2020 has presented to any organization promoting vintage racing and gives a nice picture of how they succeeded.

Brad was instrumental in getting vintage racing on track in Texas and in this episode he gives us a glimpse into the early growth of the club as well as what he's up to currently. The CVAR Brad Balles School and Race took place over the weekend of September 11 - 13 and had a reported record turnout.
