About Our Cars


Legends cars were first introduced at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in April of 1992 as a means to provide a spec racing class that was affordable and fun. Designed by H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler (President and General Manager of Lowe’s Motor Speedway) and Elliott Forbes-Robinson (road racing champion), Legends cars are 5/8-scale, full-fendered fiberglass replicas of the NASCAR Modifieds of years past. The cars that Legends are modeled after were once driven by such racing “legends” as Fireball Roberts, Buck Baker, Curtis Turner, Speedy Thompson, and Banjo Matthews. Present-day drivers who have spent time behind the wheel of Legends cars on their way to the ranks of NASCAR include Joey Logano, Reed Sorenson, and David Ragan.

Legends cars now represent one of the fastest growing motorsports segments, with driver classifications that ensure there is a division for everyone, regardless of age or experience. Drivers as young as 12 and up to the age of 16 run in the Young Lions division. The Semi-Pro class, intended for novice drivers, includes anyone over the age of 16 who is either new to Legends racing or who has not been active in racing in recent years. Experienced drivers are grouped into the Pro class. Drivers age 40 and over can compete in the Masters class. As drivers move through the ranks and from class to class, the car remains the same, making it a truly affordable long-term investment.


Bandoleros, also produced by U.S. Legend Cars, offer drivers as young as eight years old access to thesame type of affordable, quality spec car racing as their c
ounterparts in the Legends series. With a 570 cc Briggs & Stratton engine that is modified to stretch its power to almost 30 HP, these cars offer an excellent starting spot for youngsters looking to get an early start in motorsports.

Publications put out by U.S. Legend Cars offer the following words from H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler about Bandoleros: "We wanted something to go between a kart and a car and wanted to make it relatively simple for everybody to use. For example, like a kart, the Bandolero Car has left-foot braking and a centrifugal clutch so there's no shifting of gears for a new driver to worry about. Simplicity and economy of design are evident everywhere, with 150 parts making up the entire package--just half of what goes into making a Legends Car."
