Warren LeVeque Memorial Corvair Show
The Northeast Corvair Council - a.k.a. NECC Motorsports - may have the best idea around for all the people who have waited quite a while to get out and exercise their Corvairs, or at least take a “road trip” to meet up with other car people.
What: Warren LeVeque Memorial Corvair Show
Where: Pocono Raceway. 1234 Long Pond Rd, Long Pond, PA 18334
When: Sunday July 31, 2021
Gates open at 7 AM. On-site registration begins 9 AM. Show begins 10 AM. Awards at 3 PM.
On Saturday July 31, we’re having a Corvair Car Show in conjunction with our usual performance driving event at Pocono Raceway. The show field will be in the Pocono North Course paddock right in front of the North Course garages. The show includes lunch-time parade laps around the North Course. People’s Choice judging.
The two events – show and track day – will run concurrently and both are dedicated to the memory of Warren LeVeque who passed away in 2020. He is one of the best known and beloved Corvair Racers from the 1960s right on through the 2000s and ran in a number of NECC performance driving events with his highly-modified Corvair-based track cars. Many of us grew up in the hobby reading his monthly full-page articles in the Corvair Society of America’s award-winning magazine during his 20-year tenure as the CORSA Competition Chairman.
Those who enter the car show will have a good time. Think of it as a “Car Show with Benefits.”
• No fee to enter the racetrack gate,
• No fee to enter the car show,
• No fee for parade laps,
• No fee for spectators
You are also welcome to walk through the garages where drivers will be preparing their cars for high-performance driving event on the track. You can also volunteer to assist with trackside flagging responsibilities for an hour or two during the action.
But that’s not all. You’ll have a front row seat for a very unique 20-minute parade of 300 Harley Davidson motorcycles rolling into the track facility at 12 Noon. They will take three parade laps on the whole 2.5-mile NASCAR Tri-oval, and back out again. Keep your camera ready for this one. All in one place, on one day. You can’t make this stuff up.
On-site registration will be available but please register in advance. Go to neccmotorsports.com and, using the navigation menu, select “Corvair Show”.
