Teen Safety Education

Street Survival - Teen SafetyOur Foundation is pleased to report that, as a result of our sponsorship, and that of others, over 2,600 teenager drivers across the country have received training and education to help make them safer drivers.

What better way to preserve out motoring heritage for the next generation…by keeping them safe!

Thanks to your generous donation to the National Corvette Museum, we were able to host a Tire Rack Street Survival school at the Nation al Corvette Motorsport Park.

Last year we completed over 100 such events and taught more than 2,600 teens on how to be safer drivers which makes the roads a safer place for all of us. It is supporters like you that help to support our important life-saving work.

Again, we sincerely appreciate the support to the Museum and its educational services, and subsequently, to Tire Rack Street Survival.

Preserving Laguna Seca

Laguna Seca 2015

Each year at this time, our family makes a “pilgrimage” of sorts up to the Monterrey peninsula, not only to enjoy its scenic beauty, but more so…to see the amazing cars at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and to take part in the storied racing history at the Laguna Seca raceway. We have spent many a summer behind the wheel at Laguna Seca, most recently competing in the vintage car series event held there.

While at Laguna Seca, we had the opportunity to learn more about the Laguna Seca Raceway Fund, which was formed not only to fund facility improvements, but also to continue its successful charitable and social missions. It is so rewarding to know that like-minded automotive enthusiasts can come together to preserve this facility and its traditions for the next generation, our kids and grandkids.

From the Laguna Seca Raceway Fund: To help ensure improvements continue at Mazda Raceway, the nonprofit Laguna Seca Raceway Fund, a 501(c)3 organization, was formed to collect and funnel funds toward key projects. Every dollar donated to the fund is tax-deductible and will contribute to maintaining this country’s own Cathedral of Speed.

The #3 Ford Roadster

The Number 3 roadster of Vic Edelbrock, Sr.

It is befitting that the first exhibit seen by a visitor to Vic Edelbrock’s automotive museum, known as Vic’s Garage, is the workbench of his father, Vic Edelbrock, Sr.

But no less appropriate, the first car visible from the lobby is one of the most recognized automobiles in hot rodding, the iconic #3 black roadster of Vic, Sr., restored to perfection, and proudly on display.

The Number 27 Midget

The Number 27 Midget of Vic Edelbrock, Sr.

The tale of the number 27 midget that won Gilmore has taken many turns. The car was sold by Vic, Sr., in the 1950’s, and bought back by Vic, Jr., where it was totally restored under the watchful eye of Bobby Meeks.
