Vintage Racer Group (VRG) and the Vintage Drivers Club of America (VDCA) opened their 2022 season yesterday at Virginia International Raceway for the twentieth annual Wild Hare Run.

Friday offered group practice/qualifying sessions and the infamous Wild Hare Run.  Saturday morning qualifying will be followed by Saturday afternoon’s Feature Races.  Sunday morning includes the VDCA Enduro with Sunday’s Races in the afternoon.

Senior VM photographer Bill Stoler made the drive from Pennsylvania to capture and share the sights from the 3-day event as racers are eager to get the season going.
