Program

  • Thursday May 4th

    We will meet at the Holiday Inn Asheville Downtown and go to dinner at a local restaurant. If you arrive by lunchtime, we may take a short drive on nearby roads.

    Friday May 5th

    7:00 AM: Drivers meeting and early departure for the now famous Prelude Drive in the North Carolina mountains. Lunch will be on the fly, as we have someplace important to be…

    3:00 PM: Tour the Hendrick Heritage Center in Concord. This is an exclusive, invitation-only guided tour of Rick Hendricks personal car and automobilia collection.
    Please read carefully: An individual donation of $25 per person to the Hendrick Foundation is required. This will be paid on arrival, but MUST BE CASH OR CHECK ONLY. No debit or credit cards are accepted. We are required to submit our guest list in advance, so you must register for Schuh Syndikat before midnight Friday night, April 21st to be on the list. You can register for Schuh Syndikat right up until the event, but I can’t guarantee you will be allowed on this tour if you don’t register by the 21st. The rules stipulate NO PHOTOGRAPHS, and NO CELL PHONES allowed inside the center.

    Following the tour, we will work our way to the Hilton Garden Inn for the evening. Car washing will be available, and the traditional pizza in the parking lot will be provided.
