The NMRA made its fourth stop of the season in Joliet, Illinois, for the Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals, held at Route 66 Raceway in conjunction with the NMCA Edelbrock Muscle Car Nationals and Motive Gear Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing III presented by Nitto Tire. Whew! That's a mouthful. Perhaps we should shorten it to the NMRAKAFN, NMCAEMCN, and MGSBSLDR Nationals. On second thought, even that's too long.

Regardless, we're more interested in the NMRA Ford Nationals, specifically the car show, which played host to an impressive gathering of Mustangs. Congratulations to Jim McLean, whose '69 Mustang took the Best Classic Mustang award on Saturday, and to Phil Pulo, who went home with Sunday's Best of Show for his '92 Mustang.
