Coming up on KUCI 88.9fm Monday June 19th at 9:00am - experience a journey through Shelby History with Ted and Rae Segerstrom

Race Through Time and Iconic Automotive History

From the earliest GT350's, rare GT500KR's to Carroll Shelby's final wish: the 1000HP GT500. 


The Segerstrom Shelby Event Center is built around the love of the automobile and all the wonders that have come and gone along the road. Come in for an awesome walk among these classic beauties. The stories they tell are the stuff of legend.

The Segerstrom Shelby Event Center collections are some of the finest in the world. With street and racing Cobras, high-performance Mustangs and rows of nostalgic petroliana, there is something for everyone to ogle over. Our commitment to excellence in preservation and education shows in every detail.

Welcome to two of the most unique experiences in the world. Whether you want to wander among our amazing collection, or host a private event surrounded by the collection, you and yours are in for a unique treat. From daily visits to guided educational tours (coming soon), from casual conferences to formal dress affairs, you are in for something special whenever you drop by.

WHO WE ARE

The Segerstrom Shelby Event Center is a place of preservation, education, and celebration. The automobiles and artifacts in this collection conjure memories of a recent past filled with power. This power is unique to America and Southern California. The act of saving and preserving the specialties within these walls is near to our hearts, as is our commitment to helping those who need it most.

Carroll Shelby also wanted the best for everyone around him. He became a legend by doing what he loved with unparalleled passion. His creations breathe fire and stoke the imagination of all who yearn for that truly American goal: Freedom.



WHY WE ARE HERE


Profits from the Segerstrom Shelby Event Center go to the Shriners for Children Medical Center — Pasadena and the Carroll Shelby Foundation.

The Shriners for Children Medical Center — Pasadena provides comprehensive medical, surgical and rehabilitative care to children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burn scars, and cleft lip and palate. Medical Center patients receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the families' ability to pay.

The Carroll Shelby Foundation provides medical assistance for those in need, including children, as well as educational opportunities for young people. The Foundation has continued to aid children battling deadly diseases, while expanding its reach into the classroom through the Northeast Texas Community College’s Carroll Shelby Automotive Technology Center.
