One thing about these motor sports promoters: They're never understated.

Len Greco of Chesterfield recently put out a press release about his annual Muscle From The Past show that will take place today and Sunday at Gateway International Raceway.

Hey, there's more. Greco writes, "All the heavy hitters will be present for this nationally advertised event. Rod Saboury in his 1957 Corvette, the world's fastest street-legal car; John Carter from Louisville, the winner of Hot Rod Magazine's fastest street cars in America race held in Memphis; the Chicago Hit Men in their Hitmobiles; Keith Porter from St. Louis, the 1992 world championship . . .
