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.

The winner of the 2013 Porsche Boxster was Jerry Koetter of Louisville, Ky. All 1,000 tickets for the drawing were sold, Jones said.

The 10th annual Keeneland Concours d'Elegance is scheduled for July 18-21, 2013, when the featured marque will be Mustang, in anticipation of the 40th anniversary of its introduction.

The Keeneland Concours d'Elegance showcases the finest in automobiles and the attractions of central Kentucky as, each year, more than a hundred exquisite examples of automotive history from across the U.S. gather on the lush grounds of the Keeneland Race Course. The event draws thousands for this one-of-a-kind experience unmatched in the collector car community. Activities include a Bourbon Tour, Hangar Bash and the Tour d'Elegance of scenic Kentucky back roads. Proceeds benefit the Kentucky Children's Hospital to help bring better healthcare to the children of Kentucky. For more information, visit www.keenelandconcours.com.
