2019 East Coast Grand Nationals & SAAC-44

2019 East Coast Grand Nationals & SAAC-44

Thursday, July 11th through Saturday, July 13th, 2019

 

 

For the first time on the East coast, Team Shelby and the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) are combining forces, and invite you to an unparalleled celebration of the Shelby marque.

Taking place in the Northern Pittsburgh area on Thursday, July 11th through Saturday, July 13th, 2019, Team Shelby and SAAC will be hosting both the Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals, and SAAC-44, the Shelby American Automobile Club’s National Convention! The event is open to all Team Shelby and SAAC members, as well as anyone who appreciates all things Shelby. The clubs are working to bring you two days of high performance driving at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex, a road rally tour and Poker Run of the western Pennsylvania area, dinner events and programs on both Thursday and Friday evening, alternate activities for those who choose to not track their cars both days, Concours and popular ballot cars shows, and a few surprises as well. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in all portions of the event, as all activities are open to both Team Shelby and SAAC members, and can be selected during registration.

Besides our two days of Open Track and wheel-to-wheel Vintage Races, as an added bonus, members from the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix will join us at the track, as one of the opening activities of Pittsburgh’s 2019 Race Week, for three full days of exciting track action, culminating the following weekend (July 20th and 21st) in Beautiful Schenley Park with cars shows for all marques, an automotive vendor village, food courtyards, and of course the Vintage Racing taking place in and around the Bob O’Connor Golf Course. Shelby American will be the featured marque of the Vintage Grand Prix this year, so Team Shelby and SAAC members will feel right at home, and are encouraged to stay in Pittsburg for Race Week, enjoying the events that are planned for each day.

Registration to open by the end of this year!

PS – For those of you wondering, Team Shelby will still be celebrating our weekend at the Carlisle Ford Nationals, taking place on Friday, May 31st through Sunday, June 2nd. It will include all the Carlisle activities of prior years, but will not include a track/HPDE component for 2019. Consider it the “Kick Off’ event to the Grand Nationals & SAAC-44, which will be taking place the following month. As always, SAAC members and all Shelby and performance Ford enthusiasts are encouraged to join us at Carlisle for some damn fun! More details to follow.
