Racing’s heritage comes to North Island this weekend with the 18th Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival, this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 19-20, on the runway at North Island.

The unique event brings collectors and racers of vintage cars together for two days of  competitive racing. The owners travel with their mechanics and it’s fascinating to walk through the pit area and see them tinkering with everything from a century-old racer to Detroit muscle from the 1960s.

Mark Maynard of the San Diego Union-Tribune has a full report.
