First East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout

Post by Boss281 on Tue Feb 17, 2009 10:25 pm

I've formed a company with some other racing addicts to promote Mustang racing. This is the first, we'll have more next year:

2009 East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout

Announcement

Five Guys Racing is pleased to announce the First Annual East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout at Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, North Carolina, on Sunday, November 1, 2009. “The Rock” provides a centrally located, easily accessed facility on the Eastern seaboard complete with concessons, sponsor space, and nearby hotels.

The event was originally intended to focus on the 4.0L and 4.6L naturally aspirated S197's with six index, side-by-side race classes. However, due to popular demand the forced induction crowd is invited to participate in six additional classes for added excitement. The facility will manage a Sportsman ladder, and racers will face a .5 Pro Tree, half second indexes, and no breakout rules in effect. The overall emphasis is on street cars you can live with and drive every day, so all cars must be tagged and registered, and cannot be gutted. Winners in each class will receive trophies. Other awards are also being developed for items such as "best 60 foot", "longest road trip to the event", etc.

The following classes have been developed:

Grudge Matches!
Concerned about get eliminated early on? Don't be. Instead, please join some of the well known S197 racecar drivers and our other special guests in the non-award category. Call out a buddy (or a nemesis) for some straight-up heads up racing action. No one to call out? Just keep making "time trial" passes as if you are at a private rental. Everyone will have plenty of opportunity to race all day!

NA Classes
Street Sleeper - 14.000 and slower (4.0L Cars Only)
Pure Street - 13.999 - 13.500
Street - 13.499 - 13.000
Modified Street - 12.999 - 12.500
Super Street - 12.499 - 12.000
Street Eliminator - 11.999 and faster

Power Adder Classes
Street Renegade - 12.500 and slower
Street Hoodlum - 12.499 - 12.000
Street Sheriff - 11.999 - 11.500
Street Bandit - 11.499 - 11.000
Wild Street - 10.999 - 10.500
Street Outlaw - 10.499 and faster

Event rules, current class descriptions and as well as full registration information can be found on our website using the "Event Detail" navagation button or visiting our forum. Check back periodically as further information regarding entry fees, driver’s meeting, lodging and other items will be become available.

Happy to see index class racing. Those V6 autos are tough in bracket racing.

Hey everyone, I wanted to touch base with you, just to clear a few things up. There has been some confusion over who is invited to come and play at this event. It is true that this event is focused on the “street driven” naturally aspirated 2005+ S197 Mustangs. Although this event only has trophy classes for 2005 and up Mustangs (NA and FI), this event is open to all Ford vehicles with a Ford power plant.

For any non-S197 vehicles or full blown race cars, you will be able to run Grudge Matches against your buddy (or nemesis) or run open time trials (like a rental or test & tune) between competitive runs.

I hope this helps clear things up, I apologize for the confusion. I hope to see you all at the track.

Thanks Again!
Spaz

Hey Everyone! We are 3 months away from our race on Nov 1. I really appreciate all of the support you have given us with regard to this event. It looks like it is going to be a great time.

We are at a point where it is going to be crucial to get a good head count of racers. You don't have to pre-pay (although it is an option) but we really need people to pre-register. This is going to be important as far as concessions are concerned on track day, as well as the Halloween party the night before, the after party the day of, and things of that nature.

This is a ZERO OBLIGATION process. Due to you not having to pay to pre-register, if something comes up and you can't make it for any reason, it is not a problem. However, we do want to make sure everyone has the best time possible. So we need a possible head count.

If you have any interest in coming, please pre-register on the registration page of the event site at the link below.
