MORRISON, Colo. (June 21, 2011) – Fun Ford Weekend is swinging back into action this week as fans, racers and vendors get ready for the 2011 season kick-off at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo. The event will be held this Sunday, June 26th with gates opening at 8 am to spectators, participants and vendors.

The midway will include displays from presenting series sponsors Roush Yates and JE Pistons, as well as local vendors including Team Shelby Mountain Region.

Team Shelby consists of eight groups: Great Lakes, Mississippi Valley, Mountain Region, Northeast, Northern Plains, Pacific Coast, South Atlantic, and Southern Plains. While many of the Mountain Region members will be represented at the Fun Ford Weekend this Sunday, several other divisions of Team Shelby will be in attendance as well.

“Team Shelby members get together all around the world to share their passion for both the man [Carroll Shelby] and the cars he has produced since 1962,” said Team Shelby Mountain Region Director Jeff Jacobucci.

Team Shelby stemmed from an idea brought about by Carroll Shelby. He wanted a separate club where car owners could come together and dream up new ways to make their cars faster and better, while swapping stories of their latest adventures at the track. His goal was to bring all of these enthusiasts together, along with their Super Snakes, Hertz cars, Cobras, Shelby GT’s, Mustang GT’s with Shelby performance parts, Series 1’s, GLH’s, Vipers and GT500’s.

“Team Shelby is the place for all Shelby Enthusiasts to celebrate everything Shelby,” added Jacobucci, and this Sunday Fun Ford Weekenders will be able to experience the “Shelby world” firsthand.

A Shelby information booth will be on-site where Jacobucci and his wife will have some Shelby merchandise available including three new items from Shelby Signature Foods: a Shelby mesquite barbecue sauce, an all natural Shelby habanero salsa and a Shelby beef and pork rub

For this Sunday’s Fun Ford Weekend, special parking areas will be available for any Shelby auto1962 and newer, which may be showing and/or racing.

“It’s amazing to see that at 88 years old, Carroll Shelby still has the same passion for building Ford performance vehicles that he did when he was 38. Today you can upgrade your Shelby GT500 to 800 horsepower, and he’s also building a limited number of 1,000 horsepower street Shelby Mustangs. He has a smile and a twinkle in his eye when he talks about that one!” added Jacobucci.

Jacobucci will have three of his personal cars at this weekend’s event: A 2006 Hertz Shelby “Rent a Racer” Mustang, a 1989 #001 Kenny Brown/AutoKraft Short Wheelbase Thunderbird and a 1994 #006 AutoKraft Short Wheelbase Lincoln Mark VIII.
