2009 East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout
Five Guys Racing is pleased to announce the First Annual East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout at Rockingham Dragway (http://www.rockinghamdragway.com/
) 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.
Originally intended to focus on the 4.6l naturally aspirated S197 with four, heads-up side-by-side race classes, due to popular demand the forced induction crowd is invited to participate in two classes for added excitement. The facility will manage a Sportsman ladder, and racers will face a .5 Pro Tree. 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, and awards are being developed as well (best 60 foot, longest road trip to the event, etc.)
The following classes have been developed:
--4.6l and close to stock
--4.6l bolt-on crowd
--cams, longtubes, tubular suspensions and non-DOT tires
--ported heads, bored and stroked mod motor blocks and as light as you can get the car
--close to stock with turbo, supercharger or nitrous
--no explanation needed
Big Dog Grudge Matches
(some of the worlds fastest S197 Door Slammers)
Event rules and current class descriptions can be found on the website and forum . Check back periodically as further information regarding entry fees, driver’s meeting, lodging and other items will be become available.
