San Antonio, TX Mazda Dealer Can't Wait for Shelby Tribute at Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion set to celebrate Carroll Shelby, and the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra, not to mention his strong connection with the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
SAN ANTONIO, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ingram Park Mazda, a Mazda dealership in San Antonio, is excited for the upcoming Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion that's scheduled for August 17th through August 19th. There, a celebration will take place honoring the late Carroll Shelby and also the 50th Anniversary of his Shelby Cobra.
Both Shelby and the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca have had quite the career together as Shelby was an avid participant during the formative years of the then Laguna Seca. It was actually at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, where Shelby drove his final race of his career where he ended up clinching the 1960 USAC Sports Car Championship.
Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca's CEO & General Manager, praised Shelby and his involvement in the automotive industry and the sport of racing, stating that, "Carroll Shelby and his Cobras have been integral to our facility's development. For a man who had his last professional race here and returned year after year for our historic car races, it is a privilege to host and present a public celebration of his life, his cars and his deep passion. He will be missed roaming the paddock, but his spirit will forever live on."
No one can deny Shelby's role in building the framework for American racing. It's hard to believe where anyone would stand without his massive contributions to the sport.
