The National Mustang Racers Association rolled into Atco, New Jersey, on August 11-13, 2006, for the sixth event during the NMRA's eight-race season schedule. While the drag racers battled it out on the quarter-mile-after all, there were only two more races to go-the show 'n' shine crowd from around the Northeast piled into Atco Raceway for two days of awards in the Laurel Mountain All-Ford Auto Show.


This '67 fastback was lifting the front tires in the Toyo Tires Open Comp class.

1st: Terry Allen - '93 Mustang LX
2nd: Vincent Vogler - '05 Mustang GT

1st: Stephen Lalena - '03 Mustang GT
