While health concerns kept Carroll Shelby from participating, the event was nonetheless filled with legendary names from Cobra lore.
The sold out event was moderated by Randy Richardson and included from left to right racing great Bob Bondurant, talented chief
mechanic Wally Peat, Dave MacDonald's wife Sherry, legendary John Morton, the one and only Parnelli Jones, legendary Pete Brock,
racing great Allen Grant, original Shelby manager JL Henderson & racing great Jerry Grant. It doesn't get much better than that folks.
