The gates usually open around 8:00AM and the Country Roads Car Club members direct the arriving car enthusiasts to a sectioned-off grassy area for parking. Black Dog Coffee sets up their tent just a little ways up the hill.
There was a diverse selection of vehicles present on this day. Everything from stock vintage drivers to high-end exotics.
As I mentioned earlier, one of the perks of going to Cars and Coffee at the track is you get to watch racing for free! The The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) was holding their Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series (MARRS) race at the track. Just like the vehicles at the cruise-in there was a little of everything running on the track.
Entropy Racing made a few exhibition laps in their new EVSR Electric Race Car. It was very surreal to see this race car fly by at high speed and make very little noise. Is this the future of racing?
After watching all the racing it was time for the Cars and Coffee participants to take a couple of laps. For a $5 donation you could make two laps around the track. Speeds were limited by a pace car and even more if you are unlucky to get stuck behind one of those stock vintage models.
This would probably be the only time Peg could say she beat a Corvette while at Summit Point Motorsports Park. :-)
Everyone had a great time and the event lasted way into the afternoon. Check out more of our photos over on our photo site.
