The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) announced a 14-race weekend for 2018, featuring a new Pro-Am race for legends of NASCAR at Virginia International Raceway on September 22. The SVRA schedule continues to complement the professional Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli to leverage growth for the two series as they will share eight race weekends.

The new Pro-Am for NASCAR legends, called the “American Racing Legends Charity Pro-Am,” builds on the momentum of the “Indy Legends Charity Pro-Am” held annually during the SVRA’s Brickyard Invitational weekend at the IMS in June.

The event will benefit IGNITE—the Autism Society of North Carolina’s community center for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome. IGNITE was founded by The Evernham Family Racing for a Reason Foundation, a nonprofit established by legendary NASCAR crew chief Ray Evernham and his family.

“I have found a lot of us who have been so fortunate in motorsports are realizing great rewards in reaching out and helping those in need,” said Evernham. “My son’s Asperger’s condition gave me a very personal reason to take up this cause. SVRA’s team runs a first-rate show all racers and car lovers can appreciate, and that makes using it as a platform for giving back very satisfying.”

In addition to the Pro-Am features and professional Trans Am racing, the 2018 SVRA schedule will continue to deliver a motorsports festival atmosphere at most of its events, according to officials. Fans can expect more of the Hagerty Insurance “show and shine” car corrals and driving and riding experiences from sponsors like Jaguar and Harley-Davidson.
