After Thursday and Friday’s practice, qualifying, and initial sprint races, it was time to strap in for a weekend full of racing at Summit Point Motorsports Park in Jefferson County, Virginia.
VRG’s Jefferson 500 racers and spectators were once again met with a variety of weather conditions that made for some exciting racing. VM contributor Bill Stoler was undeterred by anything mother nature threw at him and had this to say about Saturday:
“The weather became warm and humid with threat of rain throughout the day on Saturday but most of the races were dry -With the exception of the Formula Ford Challenge Series feature race. As the cars left the grid for pace lap it began sprinkling and by the time they returned for the green flag, the skies opened up. Everyone did a great job in the rain – with no major incident – it was terrific!”
Sunday’s enduros and all-comer races were graced with an abundance of sunshine throughout the day, giving many a fantastic aftertaste as they headed home. Look for more photos and a full race report in an upcoming issue of Vintage Motorsport.
