Dr. Simeone discussed the fact that after World War II America showed little interest in racing, particularly on an international basis. It was not until the 1960s that a serious attack on world competition was launched and Ford led the way with great cars. Featured cars were the 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, 1966 Ford GT40 Mk II, 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Pro Stock “Rice and Holman” – Courtesy of Joe Spinelli, and the 1957 Ford Battlebird – Courtesy of Richard Stuck. Also Featured was Andy Pilgrim, Pro Racing Driver for GM Racing’s Team Cadillac who gave a seminar on traffic safety and distracted driving Prior to the Demo Day.
