Friday – October 23rd will be a gathering at the Wellborn home starting late morning. There will be a professionally catered Louisiana Cajun meal late in the afternoon. Special guests Kenny Trout and Buddy Parrott, original members of the K & K Insurance Racing Team will be joining us for the weekend.
Saturday the 24th will be another round of good fellowship at the Wellborn Musclecar Museum just up the street. In the evening, there will be another catered meal by chef Tim Creehan. There will also be a Halloween costume party which all are welcome to participate if they choose.
Sunday will be an early departure for Talladega Superspeedway and the parade lap prior to the Alabama 500 Sprint Cup Race. The good news is that the track has promised us two laps this time around, which will be nice.
We are still awaiting information on race tickets. As soon as I have them, there will be an email sent out to the club mailing list. The track would certainly like to see as many of us stay for the race as possible. The track is also reaching out to several well known drivers from the 1970 season to bring them to the event.
Registration for the event is through the Wellborn Musclecar Museum. Cost is $65 per adult / $130 per couple and is all inclusive of the food and goodie bag. We as a club is not charging a registration fee. The food menu is going to be more upscale than the usual burgers and hot dogs. Please use the registration form in the back of this issue and mail it to the Wellborn Musclecar Museum, or you can go to wellbornmusclecarmuseum.com and click on “events” and register there.
