While some folks were battling the Black Friday shopping sale day craziness, I found refuge and enjoyment by watching a dedicated group of sports car enthusiasts taking advantage of some beautiful weather at Summit Point. This was the Turkey Bowl XV, the season-ending event for the Vintage Racer Group.
While others may have taken up to an hour to find a parking spot at their local shopping mall, my son and I made the quick 45 minute trip to Summit Point, WV for one last racing fix. We were not disappointed.
You may recall my May 20th post from the Jefferson 500 weekend, that featured a battle between two 1969 Chevrons. The yellow #23 was back, and looked better than ever! I also enjoyed speaking with Lou Parrotta. His red Lotus 51 was one of my favorites of the day.
1969 Chevron B16, #23 (Ralph Manaker, Middleburg, VA)
It was a beautiful day for a spectator, but the sunshine was intense at times for the drivers.
1967 Lotus 51, #36 (Lou Parrotta, Atglen, PA)
Prior to getting started, Lou got out the racer tape and became #6 for the day.
