Join The Shelby Bash!
What exactly is a Shelby Bash? For those who don’t know, the Shelby Bash is a herd of late model to old school Shelby’s saddling up to make the cruise from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. This Team Shelby organized Bash is police escorted out of Shelby Licensing in Gardena, California, down Figueroa Street and onto the freeway headed east to Viva Las Vegas!
Once they make the 271-mile through the desert to the Las Vegas strip, there are two days of track time (Friday and Saturday), a poker run (Saturday), a tour of Shelby-American (Friday morning) and lots of other cool stuff. What everyone seems to like most about The Bash is the mingling and meeting of other individuals who share that same Shelby passion. Anybody with a Shelby is more than welcome to come saddle up and ride out!
