STAUNTON, Va. (AP) - More than a dozen members of a car club face traffic charges stemming from a Sunday drive through Augusta and Highland counties.

Police say a group of 15 to 20 sports cars was traveling recklessly Sunday morning on Virginia Route 262 and U.S. 250.

Augusta County Sheriff's Deputy Trevor Ross tells The News Leader that the drivers were speeding, cutting off other motorists and passing over double lines.

Ross says the group was part of a Northern Virginia car club.

The cars, he said, included BMWs, Lexuses, Nissans and "an exotic one or two."

The Augusta County Sheriff's Office says 15 vehicles were stopped at the Headwaters Post Office in Highland County by Virginia Conservation Police, the Highland County Sheriff's Office and Virginia State Police.

More than 20 summonses were issued to 15 drivers. Their cars were towed.
