so, we "found" a motor with a blessing and much assistance from Mark Wilson of Ford Racing. in 2012 BOSS 302 #00002.

Yeah.
So will the race be on world-challenge tv?

What day/time?

We got it running. Now we just have to swap the motor in Capaldi's car. It spit a rod yesterday in qualifying.

Race at 4. SX in SLC tonight. Load and hit the salt flats tomorrow in the rental.

I fly home Monday. Gotta be at Laguna Seca next Tuesday. We're there same weekend as MotoGP

Yup. 9th for us. Had to start dead last and the altitude wasn't kind to the restricted Mustangs.

Too many over-revs by their driver.

Pics from last night.











Sticking around till Monday afternoon to do prep for Laguna. Probably gonna go hit the salt flats in the rental.

Salutations from Laguna Seca.

It's been a busy day




Just about got it back together. Kid dropped a wheel in the corkscrew and went off. Hit the tire wall at only 45mph and the tires rolled him on his lid.

Ugh.

So, for all of us who aren't part of that scene:

What happens with the car (or future races for team for that matter) now?
