EVENT CANCELLED. Route 66 Raceway welcomes the return of the D'Arcy Buick GMC Route 66 Classic on August 15, 2020. While in its ninth year, the event has recently been reimagined and loaded with an unprecedented level of content that will not only pay homage to early drag racing and hot rod culture but will present a quarter-mile blast down memory lane for any historical enthusiast. Fans will leave the 21st century when they enter the gates and be propelled into the era of poodle skirts, pin-up girls, sock hops and more.
