Valve Cover Race

Stowe VT auto Show valve cover race

It’s not too late to start building your valve cover racer for our annual race at the Vermont Antique & Classic Car Meet! We had a great showing for our inaugural event last year and expect to see many returning fans and racers again this year. With the new addition of 16 feet of straightaway track, we’re looking forward to even more side by side competition . Prizes to be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a best in show chosen from the non-placing winners (participant judging). Check the schedule for Race day times.
