Indy 500 winning Eagles in front of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.

All American Racers is proud of the contribution their drivers, team and Eagle racing cars have made to the world's most famous race and the part they played in the history of the 500 in the 1960's and 1970's.

Eagles won the race in 1968 (No. 3 with Bobby Unser, Leader Card/Rislone team), in 1973 (No. 20 with Gordon Johncock, Pat Patrick/STP Team) and in 1975 (No. 48 with Bobby Unser, Gurney-AAR Jorgensen team).

Dan Gurney came to the Speedway for the first time in 1962 driving Mickey Thompsons' Buick Special. He invited Colin Chapman, the most gifted designer of his era, to visit the track and look over the existing technology. Dan paid Mr. Chapman's round trip plane ticket and introduced him to Ford Motor Company in Detroit. This led to the Lotus Ford/Indy effort with Dan and Jim Clark as team mates for the next three years and ushered in the rear engine revolution at the Speedway in a big way.

With the help of Goodyear, Dan Gurney's company All American Racers started to build Indy cars in late 1965 and managed to put five Eagles on the grid in 1966. Dan's day was cut short by a multi-car accident that happened in front of him on the starting line, which eliminated 11 machines. The very first dark blue AAR Eagle No. 31 only covered a distance of barely 150 yards. (It is beautifully restored and part of the Riverside/ Magnon Museum collection today).

Dan went on to a stellar Indy car career as a driver putting an Eagle twice on the front row and finishing 2nd, 2nd and 3rd in 1968,1969 and 1970. While a win eluded him as a driver, three victories as a manufacturer and team owner made up for it.

The following drivers drove for the AAR factory team: Dan Gurney,Joe Leonard, Roger McCluskey, Lloyd Ruby, Jochen Rindt, Jerry Grant, Denis Hulme, Bobby Unser, Jim Malloy, Wally Dallenbach, Pancho Carter, Vern Schuppan, LeeRoy Yarbrough, Mike Mosley, Kevin Cogan, Tom Sneva, and Ed Pimm.

53 drivers put customer Eagles into the field of the Indy 500 .They came from a variety of different motorsports series: Donnie Allison, Mario Andretti, Gary Bettenhausen, Tom Bigelow, Ronnie Bucknum, Larry Cannon, Pancho Carter, Jimmy Caruthers, Michael Chandler , Steve Chassey, Wally Dallenbach, Mark Donohue, Chet Fillip, Dennis Firestone, Spike Gehlhausen, Jerry Grant, Pete Halsmer, Bob Harkey, Mike Hiss, David Hobbs, Gordon Johncock, Herm Johnson, Bubby Jones, Jerry Karl, Mel Kenyon, Steve Krisiloff, Joe Leonard ,Lee Kunzman, John Mahler, Jim McElreath, Roger McCluskey,Graham McRae, Mike Mosley, Rick Muther, Jan Opperman, Johnny Parsons, Jr., Sam Posey, Bill Puterbaugh, Lloyd Ruby, Johnny Rutherford, Joe Saldana, Swede Savage, Billy Scott, Sam Sessions, Dick Simon, Bill Simpson, George Snider,, Bobby Unser, Al Unser Jr., Al Unser Sr., Billy Vukovich, Bentley Warren, and Carl Williams.

Out of the 33 fastest qualifiers at the 1973 race 21 were Eagles built in Santa Ana - this at a time when competition among manufacturers was as fierce as among drivers.

Big Machine Racing announced today, on what would have been Dan Gurney’s 90th birthday, that they will honor the late racing legend during the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway on Saturday, May 8. Gurney’s iconic All American Racers, Inc. (AAR) livery from the 1970 Trans Am Series season will be featured on Jade Buford’s No. 48 Big Machine Chevrolet during NASCAR’s official Throwback Weekend.

Gurney had quite the storied career, having won races in NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula 1, the Trans Am Series and more. In 1967 he was part of the first, and only, all-American duo to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans, accomplishing the feat with teammate A.J. Foyt. He was also a highly successful team owner and race car manufacturer. Paying homage to Gurney was a natural fit for Big Machine Racing team owner Scott Borchetta, who is also an avid racer and has a strong passion for motorsports and its history.

“Dan Gurney has always been one of my heroes. I had the great fortune to spend time with him in his later years and experience his charm, wit and genius,” said Borchetta. “It is our great pleasure to return Dan's iconic Trans Am livery to the racetrack with AAR & Hot Wheels, all with the blessing and support of Evi, Justin and the Gurney family. Win, lose or draw, we will be spraying champagne after the race in Dan’s honor!”        

Gurney’s original bold blue livery featured oversized numbers that stood out on the track and was accented with brightly colored stripes on the hood as well as the Hot Wheels logo on the rear quarter panels. The paint scheme is from his final year prior to his retirement from getting behind the wheel of a race car and shifting his full-time focus to AAR team owner and race vehicle manufacturer.

“Dan would be very happy and honored to see a younger version of himself drive a younger version of the old No. 48,” said the late Gurney’s wife, Evi Gurney. “The car in its colorful livery with its provocatively outsized number looks bold and modern just like it did fifty years ago on the 1970 Trans Am circuit. It was cool then and it is cool again now. Congratulations on this marvelous ‘vintage’ racing effort and best of luck to Jade and the team.”

While Buford and the No. 48 team have never made a start at Darlington Raceway, they have already turned heads with impressive performances in their first-ever NASCAR Xfinity Series season. The 33-year-old road-course ace has put together three top-20 finishes in his last five starts, most recently driving to a 19th-place finish at Martinsville Speedway last weekend. When they head to Darlington next month, they’ll be looking for a strong finish as they honor Gurney and his legacy.

“The Gurney family wishes Jade and the Big Machine Racing Team huge success in the Xfinity race at Darlington,” said Justin Gurney, the late Gurney’s son and current president and CEO of AAR. “The No. 48 was always good luck for Dad and for AAR and with Dad looking down we think Jade might have some extra pressure pushing down on his right foot. The livery was always a favorite of Dad’s and fans all over the world. Thank you all for remembering Dad and AAR and honoring him in this way.”

Fans can tune in to the Darlington NXS Throwback race, the Steakhouse Elite 200, on Saturday, May 8 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.

“I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to drive a car that pays homage to Dan Gurney's 1970 No. 48 Hot Wheels AAR Cuda,” said Buford. “For me, cars have been a life-long obsession that started out by playing with Hot Wheels outside in the dirt and has evolved to where I am today - on the track with real motors. Next month, I get to be on the track with a real life-sized Hot Wheel, my childhood dream come full circle.”

Delaware Speedway is a half-mile paved race track that is one of the oldest continuously operating tracks in Canada. It is located a few minutes west of London, Ontario northeast of Delaware, Ontario. It hosts stock car racing every Friday night during the summer. The track opened in 1952 as a quarter-mile dirt track that was paved in 1960. In August 1969, the track was expanded to a 1/2 mile paved oval and continues today.


The track hosts four different divisions as part of its home classes (Late Model, Super Stock, V8 Stock, Bone Stock). They also host the King of the Hill spectators races.

Late Model[edit]

Jake Sheridan - 2019 Pro Late Model

Late Models are purpose-built race cars. They are the fastest weekly class at the speedway and drivers in the series make occasional trips to other speedways in the province for large special events or tour the province with the APC United Late Model Series. The signature event for the Late Models is "The Great Canadian Race" held annually.

Super Stock[edit]

2019 Delaware Speedway V8 Stock Series - Ryan Dyson (V8 Truck), Steve Shaw (V8 Car)

This class is made up of mid-1970s through mid-1980s North American vehicles. The cars are sometimes described as "The Late Model of Yesterday" in reference to their similar look to the old Late Model class. The cars have been modified with safety and performance in mind. The division was known as the "Street Stock" class until its name was changed to "Super Stock" several races into the 2007 season. The change occurred as a result of gradual improvements to the quality of the cars in recent years and the signing of a new sponsor to the division. The speedway announced that more modern muscle car body packages will be introduced for the 2011 season including Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, and Ford Mustang.

V8 Stock[edit]

2018 Delaware Super Stock Division

The V8 Stock division is one of the newest at Delaware Speedway, however the series has roots dating far back into the track's history with the Enduro Series, which thrived in the 80's and 90's. After the collapse of the Enduro series, the V8 Stock division was born as a weekly series. These full bodied stock cars and trucks have in a way taken over where the Street Stock division was in the 90's before its evolution to the Super Stocks. In recent years the V8 Stock Series has seen car counts grow to record numbers with more drivers entering from the Bone Stocks. In 2019 the Division was combined with the V8 Truck division, allowing drivers to compete with an array of V8 style vehicles.

Bone Stocks[edit]

In an effort to create an easy entry level and add additional entertainment value to the track, the speedway announced in the 2008 Rule package the introduction of a 4-cylinder "Chaos Car". The division was developed by track announcer John Houghton. The class ran in "Novelty" type events before Enduro races and occasionally at the conclusion of the Friday program. Over ten different vehicles were entered into competition in the first year. Race courses included "barrel turns" where drivers had to drive 360 degrees around a barrel before continuing, weaving cones, stop boxes as well as small launch ramps in the season finale. The inaugural "Chaos Car" champion in 2008 was "SnotRod", built by Mark Thyssen and piloted by Tyssen Toll. In 2009, Spencer Rabideau in "Bush Bomb" claimed the title at the season finale in which nine drivers competed. The car count held steady into the beginning of the 2010 season, which finished the year with 12 vehicles competing in the finale in which the championship was won by "Blue Thunder". The 2011 season built on the success regularly starting more than 10 drivers and finishing the year with 15 drivers at the season finale.

The series experienced the largest single-day growth of a division in speedway history with the introduction of the "Bone Stock" format, which updated the Chaos Car rules to fit an old-school 1990's Enduro-type race. The Bone Stock 75 made its debut on October 15, 2011, in which 30 drivers arrived to compete, nearly doubling the size of the division.

Junior Racing League[edit]

The Junior Racing League races on Wednesday nights on a special roadcourse in the infield. The drivers (aged 8–17) years old race 1/2 scale late model stock cars. The program was formerly known as the "CASCAR Junior Program" and was founded in 1997. Racing is divided into two divisions - Junior (8–12 years old) and Senior (13–17 years old). The program has seen many drivers graduate to higher divisions in racing, including J.R. Fitzpatrick.


Opening (1952)[edit]

The track was opened in 1952 by Hugh Brodie as a 1/4 mile dirt track and operated as such until it became a 1/4 paved oval in 1960. Expansion to its present-day 1/2 mile paved track configuration took place in 1969.

Super Modifieds (1970s)[edit]

The 1/2 Mile asphalt surface is said to have been specifically built to accommodate super modified racing. The "Supers" raced at the speedway from the 1970s through the 1980s before being dropped from the racing card and replaced with Super Late models. Super Modified racing did not return to Delaware Speedway until 2006 when the International Supermodified Association (ISMA) touring series made a stop. The series continues to attend the track each season, currently running two-day race weekends.

CASCAR era (1981–2005)[edit]

The history of CASCAR and Delaware Speedway are very closely connected together. Delaware is widely recognized as the "Birthplace of CASCAR". The promoter of CASCAR, Tony Novotny was simultaneously promoter of both CASCAR Operations and Delaware Speedway before selling the track in 2001.

The track hosted CASCAR Super Series races from 1986 until 2005 when Delaware Speedway dropped CASCAR from its schedule in the same year the track left the NASCARDodge Weekly Series after a two-year membership. The reason for the drop was delays in the delivery of the CASCAR schedule, prompting Delaware to fill the 2 annual CASCAR dates with its own events. Observers also cited strained relations between the track and CASCAR over the series' operations being controlled by its impending buyer NASCAR. All of the CASCAR Super Series' races in 1986 were held at the track, Ken Johnston was the champion.

NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series (2004–2005)[edit]

Delaware Speedway became the first Canadian track to be a member of the NASCARDodge Weekly Series in the 2004 season. At the conclusion of the 2005 racing season, the speedway cancelled its NASCAR sanctioning at the same time as it dropped its CASCAR Super Series events. During the period after a series of rainouts and under the NASCAR rules at the time, the speedway was forced to run a number of double feature nights to make the minimum number of races required under the NASCAR program. With double feature nights increasing the weekly payout and not increasing the number of fans, the speedway reconsidered its place within NASCAR.

Independent period (2006–2008)[edit]

Following the end of NASCAR sanctioning the speedway management set about a focus on building the profile of its weekly racing programs. The track worked with the Ontario-based inter-speedway organization Weekend Warrior Series (WWS) in an attempt to increase travel between Ontario-based speedways and also introduced new Late Model events such as the annual Canada Day PartSource 140 and giving the former CASCAR 300-lap Labour Day race to the division.

At the beginning of the 2007 racing season the track General Manager and Operations Director resigned from the speedway. Jeff Wilcox was put in place as Operations Manager and the 2007 race season went ahead as scheduled. Wilcox would remain operations manager until the conclusion of his term at the end of the 2008 racing season.

New ownership and return to NASCAR (2009–2011)[edit]

On January 21, 2009, the speedway formally announced that one of the business's part owners, Arlen Scherba, had bought out the other business partners to become the sole owner of the speedway business. In the same release, the track announced its return NASCAR weekly sanctioning under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series banner. The release also indicated that the speedway land lease was no longer a concern.

A new operations manager had been put in place before the new year, Paul Houghton, who had previously directed the track's Junior Racing League (JRL) program. Jeff Wilcox continued his role as Race Director, and John Houghton continued as Public Relations manager. Joe Czernai would later be added as the track's general manager, part way through the season.

The speedway successfully executed its first NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event on Saturday, June 6, 2009, and repeated the event one year later on June 5, 2010. D.J. Kennington was the winner of both events. The 2009 season also featured numerous track renovations including repaving the majority of the front stretch, new corner lights, and electronic timing and scoring as well as a new ticketing system.

The 2010 Delaware Speedway season schedule was similar to that of 2009, with the addition of a special Summer Showdown featuring NASCAR drivers Kyle Busch, David Reutimann, and Jason Leffler. The event was won by Kyle Busch and was his first win in Canada. The 2010 schedule reduced the Open Wheel Modified series to a smaller schedule as part of retooling efforts for the weekly program, while increasing the number of races for Late Models, Super Stocks, and Trucks.

In 2011, the track hosted a NASCAR Whelen Modified event in September. It also announced plans to expand seating capacity by 600 and replace a number of grandstands to accommodate larger events, but the installation of those grandstands was put on hold shortly after the announcement to make additional preparations. Ron Sheridan, champion in the track's Late Model class, took over as race director in December 2010.

DeMelo–Spivak partnership (2012–2021)[edit]

On December 1, 2011, Arlen Scherba withdrew as owner of the track and the DeMelo and Spivak families became owners of the speedway. The change in ownership was considered historically significant as it represented the first time the lease-holding Spivak family was to have a direct interest in the speedway business.

The Delaware Group (2021–Present)[edit]

Delaware Speedway has been a staple in Canadian motorsports and stock car racing since 1952, hosting some of the country's top touring series and weekly racing talent for nearly 70 years. The half-mile paved oval is one of Canada's oldest operating racetracks and is located just minutes to the west of London, Ontario.

A new ownership group, The Delaware Group, consisting of Walt Spivak, Jon Aarts (John Aarts Group/J-AAR) and the United Racing Series (Ivor Jones, John Jones, Steve Drake and Luke Ramsay) will oversee the famous track moving forward with Russ Urlin managing operations under the role of General Manager. Luke Ramsay will assume the position of President of Delaware Speedway with Darryl Timmermans in the role of Competition Director. The United Racing Series marketing and management team is set to promote the speedway.

The new ownership group has plans in place to significantly invest in the facility including racetrack surface upgrades that will begin at the conclusion of the 2021 race season and be complete for the start of the 2022 race season. Additional facility upgrades will take place throughout the season and into the 2022 race season.

The next chapter for the historic half-mile is set to be a major one with the ownership group planning major events and upgrades to the facility and operations. Weekly racing will return to the speedway in 2021 after the 2020 race season was cancelled due to the pandemic. Touring series, including the United Racing Series & NASCAR Pinty's Series, will have events at Delaware Speedway in 2021 to race alongside the weekly series.
