    Great thread!!! It's also bringing me back to the days of spending waaaaay too much money roadracing Howe framed stockcars. Miss the wail of the V-8 on song though:cry.

    Best of luck this season and keep it coming.

    5th fastest at Miller so far. Both Kia's and both Acuras in front. Restrictor killing us at altitude

    Pics coming but we lost compression in #3 cylinder at the end of 2nd practice yesterday. Only had an hour to qualifying. Went out without the restrictor on 7cylinders and qualified 14th. Everybody sped up, we didn't.

    Pulled the motor last night, but no spare. Luckily we're at Miller. Where they have the Ford driving school. Lots of mustangs floating around. LOTS.

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

    Yeah.

    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.
