2012 VRG Jefferson 500

ELBRacing has officially kicked off the 2012 racing season! The team was out in full force at the VRG Jefferson 500, May 17 – 20 @ Summit Point Motorsports Park. Jim Karamanis participated as an instructor during the two day VRG drivers school. New ELB Racers Jerry Boyer & Ralph Pagington both attended the school in their vintage racers. This was Ralph Pagington's first event since restoring his 1979 Mercury Bobcat. All three participated in the vintage races throughout the weekend, including Brian Walsh's feature race for IMSA RS / SCCA 2.5 Challenge Reunion race cars. The event grand marshal was Peter Brock who paced the Reunion Race field in a 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe, a car of his own design.
