There were over 30,000 spectators and 450 vintage cars that participated in the Elkhart Lake’s Road America event, but it was Bob Bailey and his 1968 Porsche 911L racecar that took home the elite prize of “The Car We’d Most Like to Race.”
Bob Bailey was just in his early 20s when he raced a brand new 1968 Porsche 911L as part of the Porsche of America Racing Team. It’s a small car -- one of Porsche’s lightweight models -- painted burgundy with a gold stripe and the number “22” emblazoned on its side. In its first race, the Porsche earned Bailey a 2nd place finish in his class. Bailey sold the racecar two years later.
