A North Carolina Corvette Club

We would like to thank all 182 plus Corvettes that joined us for the 2022 “Run To The Colors-Fall Corvette Tour” Sunday October 23rd. We had Corvettes ranging from a 1962 Corvette Fuelie to 2023 models.

We had Corvettes from North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Florida, Virginia and Tennessee.

A BIG thank you to Ronald Queen-Operations Manager at The Famous & Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway. Everyone loved being able to see the track and having this as our start location of the tour.

We could never put this on without the help of our Foothills Corvette Club members, thank you! I really appreciate the extra help provided by Derry Hendrix & Priscilla Norris.

I’m already looking forward to “2023 Run To The Colors-Fall Tour” and hope to see you there!
