In 1992, the officials at Charlotte Motor Speedway began noticing a great need all across North America. This need was very simple: an affordable race car with a unique design that requires little maintenance time and cost. This was brought about because many short tracks had allowed the cost of their competing race cars to escalate out of control with "loose" rules.

Car counts began to drop drastically, and at that moment, track officials estimate that 30% to 40% of the race cars in North America were not in competition because of cost. After further research, track officials noticed that when car costs went over $20,000, participation dwindled. Tracks featuring cars in the $10,000 to $15,000 price range with low maintenance expenses (cost of racing a car per race) had significantly increased car counts.

As a result of this research, in January 1992, US Legend Cars, Inc. was launched and so began a highly-accelerated Research & Development program to create a new race car that would be affordable, race on smaller tracks and have low maintenance costs.

It was then in April of 1992 that the first Legends Car was unveiled at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. The concept of creating a fun and affordable "spec" class of racing for anyone to participate in was born.

Since that time, the Legends Cars have become one of the fastest growing segments of motorsports today. With series running in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Finland, Russia, Denmark, France, Benelux, and Holland. Legends Cars is THE racing opportunity that is available to anyone. The Legends Car continues to be produced by US Legend Cars, Inc. in Harrisburg, North Carolina. Currently they are the largest mass producer of race cars in the world.

Presently, there are more than 3,500 Legends Cars in existence.
