Cunningham competes at the 36th Annual Mopar Mile High Nationals

Jeff Cunningham took his national recordsetting Corvette to compete at the 36th Annual Mopar Mile High Nationals in Denver, Colo. this past July.

They arrived on Thursday, before the race, so they could attend the Mopar Block Party in Golden the day before the race. Golden closes down the main street and thousands of people from all over the country as well as locals attend.

Ellsworth County I-R

His most recent job was in downtown Ellsworth, at the Petal Place, formerly Boot’s Plant and Flower Center.
