It’s 2022…finally back with the vintage racers!

It’s been too long since my last post. To be specific it was the US Vintage Grand Prix in September 2021. Time to get busy again! So, this past weekend I traveled to Summit Point (West Virginia) for Vintage Racer Group’s Jefferson 500.

I always start any race weekend with a walk around the paddock. There’s nothing like seeing the cars up-close-in-person. And it’s always fun to say hello to the drivers and crew along with the many friends I’ve developed over the years. 

Here’s just a few pictures from the paddock. The race review is coming soon. Enjoy!


My favorite sports car of all-time. The Porsche 911. Its styling is timeless. This is a 1969 Porsche 911 (#153) driven by David Dean.
Here’s a bucket list item for me. I’ve always wanted a Vespa. This is a 1963 model. I can definitely see myself cruising around the paddock/track with one of these beauties.
The Formula Ford Challenge Series always puts on a great show at VRG events. Here’s a 1969 Macon MR7B (#116) driven by Matthew Barbour.
