The Jefferson 500 was established with VRG as a celebration of the great long distance races from motorsports past. Twenty + years ago Bill Scott and his good friend, Brian Redman wanted to have a first class Vintage racing on the Summit Point℠ circuit, so they created the Jefferson 500. Invitations were sent to their friends and others with older historical sports cars and the Jefferson 500 was born.
Now, the Jefferson 500 has grown into one of the largest and most respected vintage races in the northeast. In 2009, Bill Scott and the Vintage Racers Group partnered to bring the Jefferson 500 back to Summit Point℠ Motorsports Park. This annual event brings over 200 cars to Summit Point, WV for three days of racing, a test day and a driver’s school. Also, because Summit Point℠ Raceway retains the charm of racing circuits from the 50’s and 60’s, it’s the perfect place to experience what it must have been like to compete back in the day!
We’re so ready for some VRG racing at the Point! Unfortunately, this years event has already passed, but it’s never too early for you to begin making plans for the 2016 Jefferson 500. Like the Jefferson 500 Facebook page to stay up-to-date on event dates and information.
