One of the largest Nostalgia Super Stock races in the country will be returning to Gateway Motorsports Park (Madison, IL) just outside of St. Louis, MO, the weekend of May 23-25, 2014, as a part of the Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Muscle Car Nationals.  After announcing that the NMCA Flowmaster series would return to Gateway in 2014, the NMCA and Doug Duell (Dave’s son) announced that the Dave Duell Classic would return to its longtime home.
Duell and fellow racers organized the Dave Duell Classic eight years ago as a tribute to his father, Dave Duell, who was an instrumental racer and ambassador to the Nostalgia Super Stock movement across the country. The Classic is open to all brands of vehicles, and has continued to grow each year.  Nostalgia Super Stock competitors will be parked together and will all be invited to a special Saturday evening BBQ.
