Let the Pony Wars Begin! SGMP Hosts Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge Races
Nothing’s more fun than a little friendly competition, and that’s especially true when it comes to Ford Mustang versus Chevy Camaro versus Dodge Challenger drag racing and autocrossing to prove brand superiority. Total war breaks out October 17, 2015, at the South Georgia Motorsports Park (SGMP), but the starting point for those interested in road tripping in a caravan starts the morning of October 16 with a meet up at Steeda Autosports in Pompano Beach, Florida.
The scenic trek from Pompano Beach to SGMP is a little over 400 miles and ends with a meet-and-greet that turns into a Friday night kickoff party at the Holiday Inn in Valdosta, Georgia (1805 West Hill Avenue). The next morning the herd heads from Valdosta, to SGMP at 2521 U.S. 41 in Cecil, Georgia.
SGMP’s gates open at 8 a.m. with an open test and tune/grudge running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For those just interested in watching the action the $12 price of admission includes entry into the car show. A $35 entry fee applies to drag race or autocross. Drag racing will consist of two classes for those who want to compete or test and tune. Test and tune will run all day long. For those competing, eliminations will consist of a Quick 8 runoff where the fastest eight cars of the day pair up and race heads-up.
Three additional classes will be created for those competing based on cars with the closest time grouping. These three classes will run eliminations in the Open Comp format. Consequently every car signed up for eliminations will be competing. Cash prizes will be presented to the winners of the competing classes, Quick 8, and Open Comp.
To find out how many ponies one’s car is putting to the rear wheels, dyno pulls will be available all day long courtesy of VMP Tuning. The charge for three pulls will be $99 and includes a printout.
Everyone is welcome. The event is open to all makes and models of American cars.
