Working on putting together an open track event for Shelby, Mustangs, and Fords. Would be at Pocono Raceway, North Course. Guessing at $250-300 per car. Two Shelby only run groups, beginner and advanced. 4 or 5 20 minute sessions and class for novices. Working on possible instructors. Will also have a morning and afternoon touring session, paced, like lunch laps. Small cost. Working out the details, but want to gauge interest. We need 40 cars to make it fly.

With the national convention still in question (if at all), and rumored to be out west, here's a chance for the East Coast to get together, have a low-key day at the track. You could even just be there and be social.

So, right now wanting to see if there's enough interest. Please respond either saying a hearty "YES!!!" and you would sign up, "Yes, maybe", "Yes, I'd like to do the touring laps", or "No, how dare you want me to run my precious car on the track!!!".

Many thanks and looking forwards to hearing your answers, comments, suggestions.

Dan

Yes maybe. Maybe yes. Is that the same thing?

Dan, I would definitely be in but I donít know whether the border with Canada is going to be open.

 :D Not to get off topic, but I had to laugh when I saw "Nuke GT" as a handle. I was instantly reminded of the 65 with huge flares that ran the plate NUKE GM. I recall it being lime green in the 80's. Any one else remember that or am I delusional...... 8)

I would be interested in attending. Probably just to hang out and parade laps.

I remember it, it was at Mid America in 1989 for sure.

That doesn't bother anyone on the southern border.
