LANGHORNE SPEEDWAY
LANGHORNE, PA.
HOME OF THE "RACE OF CHAMPIONS"
LANGHORNE. The
name alone commands
respect, and well earned
too. The track located in
the northeast section of
Pennsylvania hosted the
'Race of Champions'
starting in 1951 which
quickly gained a reputation
as the crown jewel of
Northeast Modified racing.
An open invitation event on
the one mile oval, it drew
the absolute cream of the
crop of the East Coast
Modified racing scene. A
win in this event cemented  
driver's legacy as one of the
best of his time. And it was
conducted on an oval  that
was not only incredibly
fast, but unforgiving as
well. As much as
competitors fought each
other, they fought the track
and to finish was an
accomplishment. At 1 mile
in length and nearly
circular in shape, throttle
control, daring, ability and
some luck set successful
drivers apart from their
associates. Simply put, it
was every drivers dream to
win the Race of Champions.
