Jungle Park Reunion A Huge Success

September 5, 2016 admin

The Jungle Park Reunion/IRMA Marker unveiling held on October 9th, 2016 was a huge success. Between 750-1000 attended on a beautiful, Indiana fall day, to view in excess of 50 cars, and sample the wares of dozens of vendors. Indianapolis Motor Speedway historian, Donald Davidson, spoke eloquently, and shared stories about the legendary history of Jungle Park. Many drivers joined the Sunday afternoon festivities, several for the first time. They included, Bill Vukovich Jr. Tom Bigelow. Dave Darland. Gary Irwin, and Merle Bettenhausen. Fans voted a “Barn Find”, 1920’s era, “Big Car”, as the best car of the show. The owner was presented with the first annual, IRMA Best of Show Trophy, and a $100 prize. All in all, a great day, with participants already clamoring for a return of the event in 2017.
