VELOCITY TO PAY TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDARY CARROLL SHELBY IN THREE-PART MINI-SERIES EVENT

-- KING OF THE ROAD: CARROL SHELBY to Premiere Sunday, May 20th at 8:00 PM --

(Silver Spring, Md.) This May, Velocity pays homage to an automotive legend in the definitive profile of America's car king, Carroll Shelby. A pioneer in racing and automotive design, Shelby put America on the map in a racing culture long dominated by European drivers and styles. In honor of his recent passing, Velocity presents the world premiere mini-series KING OF THE ROAD: CARROLL SHELBY, debuting Sunday May 20th at 8:00 PM (ET/PT).

The three part series will follow Shelby's exploits as a hard-working Texas farmer all the way to the victory lane at Lemans, where he became the first American to take home the cup. After his racing career came to an abrupt halt, Shelby would partner with Ford to create two of the most iconic muscle cars to date. Velocity takes you on an exclusive journey, unveiling Shelby's irreplaceable legacy on car culture.
