9th Keeneland Concours d'Elegance names 1929 Stutz Best of Show  More than 130 collector cars and motorcycles are showcased during competition

The 9th annual Keeneland Concours d'Elegance featured many of the finest classic automobiles and motorcycles on display Saturday, July 21, at the Keeneland Race Course, with a fabulous 1929 Stutz Model M Lancefield Coupe taking home Best of Show honors.

These rare automobiles, motorcycles and other unique vehicles on display were judged for their historical accuracy, presentation and overall cleanliness. Each class winner and runner-up received an award, and each entrant received a Bluegrass Award ribbon.

This year's Concours featured the Packard, an automobile that has always been synonymous with American flair, style, design and luxury.

The 1929 Stutz Model M Lancefield Coupe that won Best of Show is owned by the Mitchell Collection of Montgomery, Texas. The Best of Show Award is presented by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Keeneland Concours in honor of Mari Hulman George.

The 1929 Stutz Model M Lancefield Coupe was purchased new by the Woolworth Brothers in 1929 and bodied by Lancefield Coachworks of London, England. It is the only Lancefield coupe to be supercharged and the only one surviving out of five built. It was restored by Old Iron Works of Montgomery, Texas. The Stutz also won its class, Coachbuilt Classics.

'We were all amazed by this sinister looking car,' said Keeneland Concours co-chair Tom Jones. 'It faced some very tough choices but considering the rarity and exquisite detail of the restoration, our judges made the right choice for Best of Show.'

Each year proceeds from raffles, auctions, sponsorships and ticket sales help the Keeneland Concours d'Elegance raises thousands of dollars in support of Kentucky Children's Hospital.
