Round six of the NMRA's seven-event season took place at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio, over Labor Day weekend. If it sounds familiar to you old-timers out there, yes, it's a continuation of the Ford Expo that's been happening in Columbus for the past 30 years.

As you'd expect, Mustangs were a big part of the Laurel Mountain Auto Show, with ponycars claiming over half of the spots for Saturday's Top 20 Fords awards. Other big Mustang winners were Ted and Kristi Smith and their '67 Mustang convertible (Best Classic Mustang), Scott Van Hoose for Best Saleen, and Gus O'Day with his low-mileage '72 Mach 1 that went home with the Mustang Monthly Editor's Choice award.
