The Southwest antique automobile swap meet, held at the Wise County Fairgrounds for the past five years, will move to the Texas Motor Speedway this September.

A spokesman for the meet said they desired a more central location for the event and the Speedway met that need. The event is sponsored by Dallas Model A Ford Club and the Texas Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

Sponsors of the event met with county officials last week to inform them of the decision. The move also affects the Wise County Reunion Committee, which had operated parking lots for the event.

The move does not affect the spring swap meet sponsored by the Wise County Antique Auto Club.
