VM Contributor Bill Nesius was on hand to capture the many sights last weekend at the 2019 SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing International. The event takes place at the storied Indianapolis Motor Speedway and always draws a abundant crowd of racers and fans. Here are a few of his photos from the event and look for more of his coverage in the Nov/Dec 2019 issue of Vintage Motorsport.

Doug Radix leads Group 1 onto the track in his 1955 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL.
Paddock veteran Chris MacAllister always brings lovely machines to the track and this 1971 McLaren M8F is no exception. His son, Alex MacAllister definitely showed what he and the car can do.
In a brief moment of solace, Turner Woodard’s 1975 Chevron B31 sits in front of the garages on pit lane.
Walter Vollrath was looking to get the most out of his 1972 Lola T-290.
