Road Races At Put-in-Bay – Take A Step Back In Time

Turn back the clock to the 1950s with the Put-in-Bay Ohio Road Race Reunion vintage car races. Enjoy the historic cars zipping around the streets of Put-in-Bay, just like the old days. The island closes off the main roads and lines them with bales of hay. Just like they did in the ’50s, for an authentic and unique Put-in-Bay Racing experience.
