Allison Legacy Cars Return to the Hardeeville Motor Speedway

HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (June 25, 2002) - The Allison Legacy Series will return to the Hardeeville Motor Speedway on Saturday night, June 29th with the Twin 50-lap features. Joining the Legacy Cars in racing action will be full features for the O.C. Welch Ford-Lincoln-Mercury Late Models, Legends Cars, Mini Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars and Road Warriors.

The Allison Legacy car is a three-quarter sized replica of a NASCAR Winston Cup car and is powered by a four-cylinder MAZDA B-2200 truck engine that produces approximately 125 horsepower. The cars use the standard MAZDA five-speed transmission. The cars weigh about 1,400 pounds dry but must weigh a minimum of 1,675 pounds with driver to race. The series is a "SPEC" series designed to minimize your racing costs and place the emphasis on the driver instead of the equipment.

The Allison Brothers, sons of former NASCAR competitor Donnie Allison - are the creators of the Allison Legacy car. Rules and national technical inspections are strictly enforced to limit alterations to the basic car. The engines are sealed and can only be rebuilt by Mark Smith/Tri-Star Motorsports, Winston Cup Engine Builder, where they are resealed before shipment back to the competitor. Almost all parts are spec and cannot be modified for competition.

There will also be an Allison Legacy Car Preview and Open Practice on Friday night, June 28th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Gates will open at 5:00 p.m.
