This amazing tee celebrates the 1982 Nationals with a wild flame graphic. Drivers went head to head at Orange County International Raceway in Irvine, California. This was one of the last times anyone would race at OCIR, because they closed their doors the following year.
When it was built in 1967, the OCIR earned the nickname Super Track. It's design, structure, and amenities were way ahead of the times. It was intended to host a large variety of motorsports including motorcycles, midget and stock car races, and drag racing. The task of building such a feat was not easy and took the joint effort of many talents including NHRA VP Bernie Partridge, Larry Vaughn, Bill White, Mike Jones, and Mike McKenna.
From 1980 to its closing in 1983 OCIR was under the guidance of Funny Car driver Charlie Allen, who had raced at the track since its opening. He helped garner a family-friendly atmosphere, which successfully drew in large crowds of fans. This short comeback was bittersweet. Allen was able to rally up support from locals and TV and radio personalities to keep the track from closing for another year, but the end was inevitable. This vintage tee is a great way to immortalize the memories of Orange County International Raceway.
Tag says extra large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult large.
