It was a fantastic weekend of racing at this year’s running of the Jefferson 500 (May 18-20). The small town of Summit Point is tucked away in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just west of Charles Town….just an hour away from the congestion of Metro Washington, DC. An easy get-away to get your sports car kicks.
Legendary Sports Car Designer Peter Brock was the Grand Marshall for the event. For many of the races during the weekend, he piloted the pace car. But this was not just any pace car…this was a beautiful and iconic car of his design…The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe.
Owner Charles Stringfellow (Vienna, VA) described the car as the continuation series, Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe CSX 2612. Here are a few photos of this truly beautiful car.
Stay tuned. There will be more photos from the Jefferson 500 weekend in the days to come. TJ
