Spring is already in full swing and we all know what that means, it’s time to dust the cobwebs off our Mustangs and wrap up those unfinished winter projects so we can head to the track for a shakedown run. Blue skies and cool temperatures are always a sure indicator of good times at the strip, so naturally we decided to head to Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California to check out the 2015 PSCA (Pacific Street Car Association) Spring Break Shootout in search of the fastest Fords at the strip.

Upon arriving, we realized the competition was pretty serious amongst the classes. The MagnaFuel Outlaw 10.5 class was one exception as it was dominated by Mark Luton from Camarillo, California in his 5.8L Modular 2014 Shelby GT500 Mustang that blasted down the track to cover the 1320 in 4.369 seconds at 178.52 mph beating John Scialpi’s 468ci 2000 Chevy Camaro for the win.

In the Vortech Outlaw 8.5 class, Scott Bieschke from Henderson, Nevada laid down the fastest top speed in his 363ci stroker ’88 Ford Mustang lighting up the boards at 148.97 mph. He also laid down the lowest E.T. at 5.121 at 147.76 mph but couldn’t get the jump on Erik Carlstedt of Orange, California. Erik’s ’70 Chevy Camaro launched with a reaction time of .037 which was good enough to keep him out front and light up the boards with a 5.265 second run at 138.81 mph to win the Vortech Outlaw 8.5 class.

We’re really not quite sure but, Erik’s Camaro seemed to burn the tires a bit before leaving the start line where the car hooked and pulled the nose towards the sky. We’d like to think the mythical burnout wheelie is possible but it’s probably just smoke and mirrors at play.

Paul Wolfe of Hemet, California qualified first in the Accufab Mustang Madness class with his 429ci powered Big Block ’67 Ford Mustang and made it to the semi-finals with 10.584-second run at 126.59 mph but lost out to Justen Spencer of Las Vegas, Nevada who posted a 9.507-second run at 141.3 mph in his 4.6L Modular-powered 2000 Ford Mustang. In the finals however, Justen couldn’t reel in John Marquardt of Brea, California who crossed the traps first with a 10.357-second run at 125.17 mph in his 406ci 1988 Ford Mustang.

In the Brodix Cylinder Heads Bracket-1 class, Kelly Davis defeated Brian Rogers’ 632ci 1967 Chevy Nova with a 357ci 1988 Ford Mustang after covering the quarter-mile in 10.403 seconds at 129.27 mph.

Anna Marciano of Alta Loma, California qualified first in the Calvert Racing Suspension Street Muscle class with her dark blue 1986 Ford Mustang with a 9.913 qualifying E.T. but couldn’t catch Jason Hoorn of Henderson, Nevada in his 406ci powered 1978 Chevy Camaro who laid down a 10.639-second run at 120.34 mph in the semi-finals and moved on to win the class.

Check out all the burnout and wheels up action that we saw at the 2015 PSCA Spring Break Shootout at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana!
