Annual Valve Cover Race
Do not know about this one, but put in just in case. Polly
Coming on the 20th of February, Post 24 American Legion, Rumford, will be holding the annual Valve Cover Race. To all the citizens in the River Valley Area and throughout the state, come and enjoy the fun.
We have the track and the place, our champion is ready to be raced. This annual race is open to the public. Come try for first- ,second- and third-place trophies. Each American Legion Post come try for the chapter and Post Plaques that are held at our place.
Come and enjoy the fun and see if your car is ready to run the track. We based our fun on something our kids and grand-kids do now. The Boy Scouts have given us the idea only our cars are valve covers off of an engine. CD'S for wheels but our new modified class allows wheels.
The main stipulation in the car is a valve cover. The width can be no wider than eight inches outside to outside of the wheels.
We have posters out in all directions and even statewide by Internet.
Come to Rumford, at the American Legion Hall, 184 Congress Street. The cost is $7 entry fee. This is to go toward the Legacy Foundation.
Now to make this even more fun, we are putting up a trophy that will be a turn-around trophy. This one means that the overall winner must bring it back next year to challenge all newcomers.
The American Legion Riders are ready for you. Come and enjoy the fun.
Director, Post 24 American Legion Riders
