Homecoming: Our annual return to the Empire Hill Climb

Post by Brian » Mon Oct 14, 2019 10:03 pm

Check out this link to a wonderful article in AutoWeek describing the 2019 version of the revived Empire Hillclimb;

This seems like an appropriate time to acknowledge that without Jerry and Mary's efforts, MUCH of what we recognize as road racing in Michigan simply would not happen.

Period.

Full stop.

Cheers,
Brian & Judi

I'm proud to know Jerry (worked with him at Roush in the late 80's) and glad that he and Mary are both still so active in SCCA, and WHRRI especially.
We all owe them a lot of thanks and gratitude.

There were soooo many people that helped to make this a success. A very special thanks to all.
