Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords
Eight was Great at WFC
Records were set and the racing was close at the 8th Annual World Ford Challenge.
Pure Street saw Rich Groh dominate the field with 10.20 performances. Modular power ruled the Real Street category as Tim Matherly added another winner's trophy to his collection. The largest class of the weekend was the Open Comp category where 57 competitors slugged it out. When the smoke cleared, the Gillam Brothers were the only ones left standing.
Bob Kowalske overtook Gen I and Gen II Lightnings as well as Harley trucks and was crowned Street Lightning champ. Louie Manglos of Laurel Mountain Mustang drove his mid-11-second '03 Cobra to the win in Modular Street.
Auto show Spectacular
World Ford Challenge is not just about late-model Mustangs but rather a complete Ford extravaganza, including the car show. Several show classes were available for old-school Ford iron.
