The Second Stampede (A Southern Stampede!)
« on: December 11, 2011, 10:30:34 PM »
It looks like the 2nd Stampede will be a Southern Stampede ending at the 2012 Jefferson 500 @ Summit Point West Virginia. This Stampede will be shorter than the previous one and will run from Southern Virginia to Northern Virginia ending at the races at Summit Point.  I have been in contact with Brian Walsh (Racer walsh) and they will be doing a benefit to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and will let our Pinto's on the track to run around.  Plus we get to see Pinto's race, you may not get that oportunity again.
One other stop I have planned is the National Firearms Museum, they have pretty much every gun ever made on display amongst other items and information.
I have been working over the past months to get us a NASCAR track to visit, but with the end of the season and now the holidays, they have been slow at getting back to us.  I wil continue to push for one of the big ones (Bristol, Martinsville or Richmond) all of them if they let us, hopefuly one of the contacts will come through.
Shoot me an email if you want to come, or if you have some ideas or stops along the way. We are looking at driving on Thursday-Friday May 17th & 18th and staying for the races on Saturday the 19th, heading out home on Sunday the 20th.

ARGH!!!!  >:( >:( >:(

Just to get to Summit Point is a 7 hour southern ride for me. Then I would have to add the trip onto that to just get to the start point.

When can we do a New England Run? I would be in on that so quick.

So, who wants to go?
ESS, you can drive down with us, we have the Pinto's in North East Pa.
We may add the Wood Brothers museum to the trip.

So I am still working on some race tracks, but here are some other things I plan on working into the Stampede.
http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/14179 The National Firearms Museum, should have some realy cool firepower.

http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/12738 A TANK museum which has one of the biggest privately owned collections in the world.

http://woodbrothersracing.com/?page_id=103 Wood Borthers Racing, what more can you say, "FORD!" And the winner of last years Daytona 500, Wood Brothers has a storied history in NASCAR, this could be a fun visit.
 
I still only have a few people who emailed that they want to go, please let me know if you want to attend.  I recieved a ton of emails from those who missed that last one asking me to do more so they could go.  For those who have not traveled in a Pinto Caravan, it is pretty cool.  An American adventure and roadtrip.
Thanks,

I'd love to go. But I have to see what I can work out on this end. Things are kinda tight after the wife has been out of work for two weeks from having two tumors removed from her left arm. A lap around a road course. I always wanted to do that.

For whatever it's worth, I've been to that tank museum in Danville and it is well worth the time.  Good choice for a stop!

Tommy, First Louise and I wish Sherry all the best.  I hope she has a speedy recovery, we had so much fun last time and meeting you two was great. 
 
Second, The starting point is still up for grabs.  I was hoping for Bristol or Martinsville, but they are less than quick on the response so I have to plan around this.  Right now I would say the start is the Wood Brothers in Stuart Virginia just west of Martinsville.
 
I will add updates on the trip and locations of interest, once again we will drive for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Folks, this is a great opportunity. I'm counting at least 6 Pinto race cars right now that will be on track. Not only is Peter Brock the Grand Marshall, but we'll have a special IMSA RS / 2.5 Challenge reunion race with Pintos, Datsun 510s, 2002s, etc. There is a Datsun 510 club that shows up every year for this. It would be great to have the Pintos show up in full force!

Hope to see many of you there.

Ohhhhhh it's so tempting but gotta see what show/car activity to miss this year. Too much to do, not enough time or money. Although, what could be cooler than Bristol & Pinto.

I heard from Brian "Racer Walsh" and so far 10 Pinto's will be racing at the Jefferson 500 at Summit Point. Can you imagine, 10 Pinto's racing around the track with multiple Pinto's in attendance watching.  oh, and we get to drive the track as well. The Jefferson 500 will hold a fund raiser for the Wounded Warrior Project.

We are dedicating this Stampede to Richie Evans for his induction into the  NASCAR hall of fame.  Richie drove a Modified Pinto in the 70's and won more than half the races he entered.  We all ready have the blessing of his family.  A Pinto driver in the Hall of Fame!!!!!

Also we are in negotiations with Martinsville and Richmond, hopefully we can get one or two more tracks to drive along with Bristol. 

I will keep you posted on any new events as they arise.
