Mustang Roundup VIII !!!

If you have not attended the Mustang Roundup in Hastings, Nebraska in the past ,you need to put down Sept. 13-16th on your calendar! Check the registration info at www.racemph.com ( Motorsports Park Hastings) and look up the new track upgrades if you have not been here for a few years - private garages, large covered parking for rental, and more. Why is this the place to be in September, well let's just list the reasons:

1. Tech Talk every year by Ford Engineers and Executives --who actually race with us.
2. Surprises --2015 we had two of the 39 GT350Rs at the event, 2017 saw a Black Ford GT and rides for participants, & who knows what will show up this year ( I can make 500 guesses ).
3. Full Course Autocross - yep , 2.1 miles of Conehead slaloming at warp speed.
4. Wide range of Classes , timed runs, trophies, and adulation from your fellow Blue Oval Buds.
5. Likely a wild ride in the Bacardi Bus.
6. Tons of help, updates, and track tips, as usually 60+ Boss 302s, GTs, GT 350s, Cobras and more show up , so great time to find what really is working?!
7. Track Instruction if you pay and come the first day.
8. Banquet, Auction to benefit Food Bank off the Heartland Backpack Program, lunches.

Not too many places you can hang out with 3-6 Dearborn Engineers/Executives at a track event for 3-4 days and soak up info along with hot laps, car show, food, fun, etc.!!

Just go to www.racemph.com and get signed up for FAST FORD FUN!

Also this year , 200 rated tires will run in the street tire class , so advantage to some that are tire geeks, since we all know some of these border on being as fast as DOT Competition Tires. Keep in mind though , if you have a race car ( cage ,etc. ) it will not go to a stock class if using street tires -- this was actually and issue last year for one competitor.

John , glad you are coming again, and I bet there will be more track guys shocked an old Autocrosser is so fast when it comes to circuit runs!? Plus , I know you are running street tires -- granted they are the 200 Treadwear sticky kind, ha!

Was just at Hastings this last weekend for another Event and the track is fast -- quite a few folks ran their best times , ever! Lots of new improvements like rentable garages and of course there is the big covered , open metal building , that folks can rent also, to be in the shade during the Mustang Roundup. There is electricity for both it and the single garages. Check out www.racemph.com to get signed up , as this is a must for Mustang Track Rats - definite bucket list track party. Keep in mind there will be numerous Engineers from Ford there, including the new Performance Division Managing Engineer -- there will be some surprises so you need to come and run. There is also a small car show for Stangs!
