There are followers and then there are devoted Shelby disciples. Shelby fans have been eating, sleeping, breathing and dreaming all things Shelby since the 1950s and ‘60s, when the lanky Texan transitioned from winning races to building some of the most iconic cars in history.
Today, the Shelby world includes a charitable foundation, engine group, a food company and much, much more, giving Shelby followers plenty to read about. In an attempt to harness all of the news, updates, events and photos being generated by the Shelby machine, Carroll and his team at the Carroll Shelby Foundation have launched “Shelby Nation.”
Shelby Nation (ShelbyNation.com) is a virtual community for like-minded fans to meet and access all of the Shelby organizations in one fun, easy to use spot and celebrate Mr. Shelby’s high-octane lifestyle and philanthropic vision. It will even share Mr. Shelby’s personal thoughts, as well as push those comments out to his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
TPRM helped launch Shelby Nation and will be the gate keeper for all updates and information pumped through the new portal. Foundation director Jenni Shreeves is excited about what the new venture could bring both Shelby followers and all of the Shelby companies.
“Shelby Nation provides a platform for those who want to celebrate Carroll’s achievements and help solidify his place as an American icon,” said Shreeves. “That platform also allows us to communicate directly with all who support Carroll’s philanthropic vision. To sum it up, Shelby Nation is a passionate celebration by those who fearlessly seek the ultimate in speed, adventure, innovation and charity. A lifestyle epitomized for decades by Carroll Shelby.”
