Some of Dogwood's  car lovers gathered at the Virginia International Raceway for the historic races and the car show for road driven cars. This Ford GT40, MG A and Rat Rod Postal Jeep were among the cars at the show.  Click here to view other photo section of eNews.

Besides the racing, weekend highlights included Thursday night happy hour - where we all caught up on recent activities of the group, Belgian waffle breakfast at the Tilmans on Friday morning, Friday night meal of burgers and fixins, Saturday and Sunday breakfasts of eggs, sausage and french toast, and Saturday evening meal at Oak Tree Tavern where we enjoyed great food, drink and camaraderie.

Jigsaw puzzles and crafts occupied the ladies when they weren't into the racing.

This Audi was easily the fastest car on the track

One of the really neat things about this event and others at VIR is the open paddock where there's an opportunity to meet and talk with car owners, crew and drivers who are all passionate about the sport of auto racing.  There are many photos included in the photo section.
