James Redman sent out a message today notifying the Washington D.C. region of the SCCA that the event has been cancelled due to a lack of entrants. The DC Region has provided the workers for this event for many years.

No other information was provided.

Thanks for the heads up.

Yes. This was posted on another message board.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Jefferson 500 for 2007. For several reasons we have not had sufficient entries to have the meeting be financially viable. Thank you every one for your support these past 16 years.

Best wishes
and all of us with the Jefferson wish you a safe and successful 2007 season.

Anyone know of any competing vintage races in the East or Midwest around the time of the Jefferson that caused entries to drop?

Shame NCC couldnt use the open date for a drivers school on short notice. BSR might give NCC a break on the rent.

It's the same weekend as the Import/Repli-car Show in Carlisle??? I doubt that has too much to do with the Jeff 500 though.

May-June are very busy months for motorsports, but it is a shame to lose this historic and fun event.

I was taking my father to the races for his birthday. Since that is out of the question, is there any other shows/gatherings I can take him too in our area? I did find the charity cruise-in on the 20th at the Burger King in Centerville.

Check out Old Dominion Speedway. NASCAR racing should be on for Saturday night. 1/8 mile dargs on Sunday??? and if they still have it VW show on Monday. Now this is real NASCAR racing. Not pretty boy racing where you cant tell one driver from another is that Kasey Kahne, no I think it was Matt Keneseth or was it Keven Harwick. I think it was Jimmy Johnson. And they are drive cars of yesterdya!

Yes, if you want to get away for the weekend, the Ferrari Challenge series for 430s and Ferrari Historic Challenge for all sorts of vintage Ferraris and Masteratis is at VIR in Danville this weekend!
