IROC stands for, International Race Of Champions. They've used Dodge Daytonas, Chevy Camaros " that's why Camaro IROC Z-28's where made in the mid 1980's ", and Pontiac T/A Firebirds to race with. Every year the best drivers from NASCAR, F1, CART, and IRL race against each other. The last several years they've driven Trans Am Firebirds, don't know what they'll drive next year. The IROC is usually at the Daytona Race Track in Florida.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Thanks all. That's cleared it up. I couldn't work out whether it was an event or a vehicle.
