In the early morning hours on Thursday, throngs of iconic aero and winged NASCAR warriors flocked to a parking lot just outside of the Atlanta Motor Speedway for the kickoff to the 2019 Aero Warrior Reunion. This year’s event marks the 50th-anniversary celebration of these special race-bred vehicles.
From Far and Wide
Cars hailed from around the nation and even came from as far away as Canada to take part in this one of a kind gathering. The event, hosted by the Wellborn Musclecar Museum, located in Alexander City, Alabama, is held every five years with the sole purpose being to celebrate the uniquely designed cars that competed in the NASCAR during the early 1970s. The models welcomed and championed include the 1969 Dodge Charger 500, 1969 Dodge Daytona, 1970 Plymouth Superbird, Ford Talladega and Mercury Spoiler II.
After parking and unloading their classics, participants and enthusiasts met for an introduction and brief driver’s meeting. From there, they were led by the track’s pace car out into the Speedway’s infield in preparation of what could be the chance of a lifetime – a few laps around the high-banked track.
