Racing With The Past By Terrence Fogarty

By Terrence Fogarty

Racing With the Past by Terrence Fogarty

This painting brings back so many memories for people who shared the experience of the state fair races year after year with friends and family. This was one of the last races at the fairgrounds track which hosted auto racing since the early 1900ís. Some of the great names ran on this oval, including Unser, Andretti and Earnhardt.

I included the ghostly image of a 1900ís era car in this piece as a tribute to the history and longevity of this track. It was only about a year later that I learned that many fairgrounds employees routinely sight ghostly beings in and around the grandstand. Apparently the souls of some unfortunate drivers still haunt the area. This painting features one of the last auto races at the historic Minnesota State Fair Grandstand, built in 1909 and hosting auto racing since the 1920's. The Grandstand has since been demolished. Can you spot the 1920's era car on the track? If you look close you will see Fogarty has painted a old race car in the middle of the pack. Some of the biggest names in nascar today have raced at the Minnesota State Fair.
