In the 1990s a group of individuals who raced stock cars in Alabama as far back as the 1940's led a movement to create the Alabama Auto Racing Pioneers an organization dedicated to the preservation of the memories and
history of Alabama Motorsports .
Today we are a 300 plus member organization ,a mix of former competitors and noncompetitor racing advocates who share a genuine love for motor racing and its history .
We consider the opportunity to promote and preserve the memory of
Alabama motor racing history and its pioneers a privilege.
We have a number of activities each year most most any racing advocate will enjoy and we invite you to join in on the fun
