2019 HPH Season:

2019 Race Schedule

  • VDCA Wild Hair @VIRginia International Raceway in April

  • VRG Jefferson 500 @ Summit Point in May

  • SVRA Vintage Grand Prix of Mid Ohio @ Mid Ohio Sports Car Course in June

  • Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix @ Schenley Park, Pittsburgh PA in July

  • VRG Pitt Race @ Pittsburgh International Race Complex in September

  • VRG Turkey Bowl @ VIRginia International Raceway in November

This year we are looking forward to welcoming a new veteran, Sgt. Johnny Florez into the High Performance Heroes Racing Program. Johnny lives in Florida and will have to travel to every race up north. HPH is planning on entering Johnny into competition licensing school during the Jefferson 500. After that race he will be using the #425 1959 mk2 Turner to attend races. So the seat time will be split between John Vann and Johnny Florez.

During the 2019 Jefferson 500 this May, High Performance Heroes will be having a Silent Auction in Classroom #2, the whole weekend. The Silent auction will end Sunday afternoon. Both online bidding (via HPH Facebook page) and In-person bidding will be taking place.

We are also planning to attend the Country Roads Car Club Car Show in September at the Martinsburg, WV Veterans Administration.

The winter blues are tough and we are ready to start racing!
