New Highlighted Event!
26th Annual Classic: Wrap-Up
Our 26th Annual Classic is over and in spite of the sketchy weather all events were held with only a few minor delays or inconvenience. The overall attendance was down a bit from last year’s 25th Anniversary but that was expected since that was such a milestone event and our weather threatened most of the week. We welcomed our old friends who always support us and met many new people who attended their 1st Classic. We had participants & guests from 15 states, Michigan, Wisconsin and Virginia the farthest, plus Australia and the Netherlands.

We had over 750 participants included in over 450 registrations for the Classic. Our Friday Kick Up Your Heels Cruise included 220 Corvettes in a 4 mile long caravan from TMS to Circle R Ranch in Flower Mound under the guidance of 14 Denton County law enforcement officers who controlled every intersection assuring us a continuous, smooth and safe cruise through the country.

The Saturday Car Show totaled 260 cars in both Member & Non-Member Judged and Show N’ Shine categories. Our Saturday Awards Dinner was well attended and everyone enjoyed our guest speaker - Doug Fehan from Corvette Racing. We welcomed back Weldon Floyd, auctioneer extraordinaire, who not only entertained us but also helped us raise over $15,500.00 for our charities.

Sunday Track Day turned out to be the best day of the entire 3-day Classic. The early morning storms quickly turned to clear blue skies and the limited number of stalwarts hung in there and enjoyed a great track day with multiple runs on both the Oval and Road Course as the lines were extremely short. We had 17 participants sign-up for the activities on site, several just taking a chance that we were open and we may have actually recruited 2 new members for our efforts.

I want to thank all who participated; especially all our coordinators and volunteers who help make this event happen. See you May 20 – 22, 2016!
