Marque of the Year Fundraising Record
Last year the Allegheny Chapter of the BMW Club and the Pittsburgh BMW dealers set the record for PVGP Marque of the Year fundraising with $126,500. Shelby and Mustang put forth an incredible effort this past July with the Shelby American Automobile Club’s 44th annual convention at Pitt Race and hundreds of Mustangs at Schenley Park. Did the Greater Pittsburgh Mustang Club, SAAC and Ford do enough to break the record? You’ll have to join us that night to find out.
Checkered Flag Winners
Starting back in 2009, the PVGP began awarding checkered flags to recognize the extraordinary efforts of its volunteers and partners. The first flag was awarded posthumously to our Chief Starter Don “Downtown” Brown, one of our original volunteers and the man who waved the checkered flag at the PVGP for 26 years. Since then we have presented the checkered flag to nearly 100 volunteers and supporters. A dozen flags will be awarded at the Hofbräuhaus that night but you will need to be there to see who the winners are! Complete list of past winners.
