2nd Annual Mustang/Ford Roundup at Motorsports Park Hastings!!!!

Well we had SO much fun last weekend that we're already planning the 2nd Annual Mustang/Ford Roundup! We have invited the Ford executives back again to make this even bigger and better next year! I've been working with George Anderson, President of Motorsports Park Hastings on the schedule, and we're expanding it to three days! We'll kick things off with a track school and open track time Friday afternoon for those that want to start early, or for those new to tracking their car. We'll have a welcome reception and car show Friday night to get things going, and the full slate of competition Saturday and Sunday including car show, autocross, drag racing and road racing. We're also going to expand things into 3 or 4 classes next year including vintage and AC Cobras.

Here is the schedule September 21-23, 2012!

21st 1PM Mustang Driving School until 4PM & Test/Tune
21st 6PM Super Screen Theater Reception - Mustang/Ford
22nd Mustang/Ford Auto Cross AM Trophies Sat Night
21/22nd 2nd Annual Ford Car Show - Trophies Sat Night
22nd 2nd Annual Mustang/Ford Roundup 1PM-5PM
22nd Mustang/Ford BBQ in Clubhouse from 5PM-8PM
22nd Mustang/Ford Night Drag Racing 6PM-7PM & Trophies
23rd Who's The BOSS of the Mustang's - 9AM-2:30PM
Top Ford - Overall Winner & Wrangler awards 3PM

MPH is located in Hastings, NE and opened in 2006. The facility is one of the finest I've seen anywhere. Named by Forbes.com in 2009 as one of the 10 Best places to Speed Legally in America. http://www.forbes.com/2009/02/13/racing-cars-clubs-lifestyle-vehicles_0213_legal_speeding_slide_7.html They really know how to host an event and make it an experience you'll never forget. The track is a challenging 2.15 mile road course and the surface is impeccable. They do an outstanding job of maintaining the track and the entire facility which makes for a truly great experience. You can learn more at www.racemph.com

Here's a cool video of a hot lap in a Boss 302 Laguna Seca at MPH: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDYDWkoatJQ

A long, long way to go, but

1,571 miles, 1 day and 1 hr according to Google Maps (what, driving 24 hrs a day?) but we'll be there with the 2 FR500S's

How'd you find out I've been looking at a 2 car trailer?

Do you have a trailer? Wanna caravan to Hastings with us?

I sent Cristina the link to Gary's Thread, and she writes back, "We're going to "Corn Country"?

Not as far as High Plains where I was 2 weeks ago. 1950 miles 29 hrs from FL . That was for just 1 day of lapping.

Thanks for the reminder guys (and gals), I just realized I better put it on my calendar too

Time to go bed in some new pads for next weekend, (probably) the last track event before the snow flies.

Snow? What's Snow? It don't snow in Sunny CA ! Oh, maybe close to where 5 Dot 0 lives, but not in the Bay Area

I thought this was a long ways away till I checked on my map program. 1150 + miles and 18 hours of drive time. Thats not bad at all. Just need to find a trailer this coming spring and I might just make it there. All I need to do then is continue on MMP in Utah for my Track Attack. This event sounds like a great time! It would be nice to see something like this at Watkins Glen though as it is only 1.5 hours away!

My wife views snow as a cost saving measure. Tire budget goes to zero from Nov-Mar

JBG pulled from AZ this year and I think it was over 1000 miles. You could establish a new record next year. However, we did have two guys from Switzerland. They didn't trailer their cars though

Lotta travel going on next year...maybe I will fly out and rent a 'vette if I have some cash left over

Unless this JBG character has a stacker and would be willing to tow my car out as well for a nominal fee
