Spring Cars and Coffee at Summit Point Motorsports Park

Summit Point Motorsport Park swung open its gates and allowed all forms of car nuts to pile onto the field for the Spring Cars and Coffee event. The gathering was hosted by Country Roads Car Club and the excellent coffee was provided by Black Dog Coffee. Summit Point has just recently started having these events and it is a great way to get to see some racing for free.

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.

Hendersonville Cars and Coffee Photos

Over 300 cars showed up early, starting at 8:00 AM, for the recent Hendersonville Cars and Coffee cruise-in. World of Clothing in Hendersonville, NC hosted the event and cars were spread out all across their large parking lot.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
