Start with a Track Day at Summit Point, End with the Carlisle Ford Nationals

Team Shelby and HOD Northeast have joined forces to bring you a day of High Performance Driving at Summit Point Raceway (WV) on Thursday, May 31, 2018. This is the opening event of the 2018 Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals and starts of Carlisle Ford Nationals week with a bang!

First time 'track rats' as well as experienced HPDE aficionados are invited. There will be instructors available for both classroom and in car instruction, multiple run groups based on skill level, lunchtime parade laps and a car show in the paddock for those attending but not tracking.

New for this year are Touring Lap sessions for Ford Performance vehicles, which will bridge the adrenaline gap between the lunchtime Parade Laps and the all out performance driving experience. These will be at "brisk" speeds behind a pace car and there is no passing in the Touring laps group. This is a great way to get a Taste of the Track without committing to a full track day.

Please consider joining Team Shelby for the whole weekend, as Summit Point is just the beginning of a four-day adventure including a 100+ mile poker run/cruise, cars show, banquets and presentations from Shelby American and special Shelby related guests, live bid charity auction, parades, a surprise Saturday evening program and participation in the Carlisle All Ford Nationals.

Lunch will be provided to registered drivers and those registered for the East Coast Grand Nationals. Lunch tickets for attendees not tracking a car, or not part of the Grand National event, can be purchased at track check-in/registration.

As of 1/1/18, the early bird price of $299 for Novice's will increase. Register now to take advantage of the early bird pricing! If we can fill the track with just Shelby and Performance Ford vehicles by the start of 2018, the track sessions will remain Shelby/Ford exclusive. If spaces are still available after the new year, they will be offered to all makes and models who want to come out and play with Team Shelby. Sign up now, and consider that this would make an excellent holiday gift idea for that Shelby enthusiast on your shopping list!

Get involved today to honor the legacy of Carroll Shelby and to support Team Shelby. The event schedule is listed via link below:

Please note Carlisle Ford Nationals showfield registration is not included in any Team Shelby package. Carlisle Ford Nationals showfield registration must be purchased in addition to Team Shelby packages to gain access to the Carlisle events located at the Ford Nationals.
