If Cars Could Talk – The History of Pacific Raceways

June 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Road racing historian, Martin Rudow, first visited Pacific Raceways before it even opened in 1960! Since then, he has developed a close association with the track. Trans-Am, Can-Am cars, Formula 5000, Indy cars have all raced at the track along with drivers including Phil Hill, Ken Miles, Mario Andretti and Gurney and Mark Donohue. With this year’s Pacific Northwest Historics race coming up next month, it’s time for a look back at this remarkable motor racing facility’s exciting and colorful history. Join Martin for this month’s If Cars Could Talk as he shares some of its great moments in photos and stories.

This event will be presented via Zoom. Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending, here is the Zoom link:


There are many chapters to the story of the automobile. If cars could talk, they might just share stories we never imagined. Each month, our speaker will pick a car or automotive topic and offer a fascinating peek into its history. Join us on the second Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff or local personalities.

If Cars Could Talk is FREE to the public. Pre-registration is required.
