Our Corvette Racing weekend on October 21-22 keeps getting better and better. Today we received 2 boxes loaded with Corvette Racing goodies which Doug Fehan and Corvette Racing were generous enough to donate for our Friday dinner attendees and Saturday fundraiser auction. For the Saturday auction, we have a great selection of Corvette Racing race-used memorabilia and parts. We have some great items and a little something for Corvette Racing fans no matter your budget. The proceeds from the auction will benefit the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum.
