Have you ever wanted to have you car featured in Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine? Do you enjoy squeezing every ounce of performance from your ride at the dragstrip? Then we have just the ticket for you. Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine is looking for participants for an upcoming shootout and you could be one of them.

Lots of people run drag radials full-time on their hotrods, but the majority of people out there use a conventional radial tire. That being said, we want to see just how fast you can go with that type of tire. We'll provide the track; you provide the horsepower.

The event will be held in October in Englishtown, New Jersey at Raceway Park, MM&FFs home track. More information about the event will be given out once the submissions have been tallied and competitors have been chosen.

Here are the rules:

-Any late-model Ford/Lincoln/ Mercury vehicle.

-Any engine, any mods, any number of power adders - bring it all!

-Stock style suspension only.

-Finished interior. Racing buckets Ok as long as there are two front seats. Rear seat delete OK if properly carpeted or upholstered.

-Any radial tire so long as it is not a D.O.T.-approved drag or road racing tire. Tire specifications/models must be submitted upon entry and approved by the MM&FF staff.

-Any transmission.

-Must have all NHRA required safety equipment, racing license per applicable elapsed time/mph.

-Mufflers required and all cars must pass Englishtown's strict noise restrictions. No bullet-style mufflers allowed.

Shootout submissions should include exterior, interior and engine pictures, along with detailed information about your car, including dragstrip times, horsepower output, mods list, etc... Be sure to include all of your contact information. Send all submissions to steve.baur@sourceinterlink.com, or snail mail them to Source Interlink Media, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, Florida 33619, Attn: Steve Baur.

Thanks and Good Luck,
