Southlake, TX (March 6, 2017) – The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association

Champion Jimmy Vasser
has entered the “Indy Legends” Charity Pro-Am

. Tracy is a defending champion of the race, having won the B Production competition last year in co-driver Gary Moore’s 1965 Mustang GT 350.
Both Vasser and Tracy are among the major talents of the modern era of Indy car
racing. Tracy is a seven-time starter in the Indianapolis 500
