Legend Cars are 5/8-scale fiberglass full-fendered versions of the famed NASCAR modifieds that run on a Yamaha FX09 engine.
Legend Cars began competing at Waterford in 1995 as part of a regional touring series. As part of that series, they held several events at Waterford from 1995-2000 primarily as the headliner for the former Thursday Night Thunder (1996-1997) and Sunday Spectacular Series (1998-2000). In 2001, they became the headlining point division of the new Wild N’ Wacky Wednesday series (Thursday Night Thunder from 2015-2016). In 2002, they were also added several times to the Saturday schedule as a separate point division from Wednesday. The Speedbowl has been crowning 2 separate Legend Car Champions ever since.
