Ford Mustang Motor City Mayhem
NMRA Has A Quarter-Mile Assault In Ford's Backyard At Milan Dragway.
The First-Annual Ford Racing Invitational trophy went to a fellow Primedia employee, John Gallagher, the publisher of Car Craft and a former drag racer. Gallagher wheeled a 14-second F-150 and beat out a Road & Track staffer for the trophy.
Smitty fell victim to the 500hp/radial tire/stick-shift combination as he broke out in Round 1. The car had been running 12.50s for two days, but Smitty pushed it a bit in eliminations and went 12.36.
I was fortunate enough to have made it to the final four cars before losing on a -0.008-second red light. Special thanks goes to FRPP for two days of fun.
