We wanted to make the car VERY noticable and unique, with out being TOO match-box-car ish.


Not a paint job you would drive on the street.. but it will look good passing the 'stangs @ 160mph at the end of the straight-a-ways

Leave the paint scheme, change the silver to Le Mans blue, and the orange to bright orange and put Sunoco on the side!

Speaking of the old Penske team, Jordan, congratulations on the chance we all wish we could have in carrying on the legenday tradition Team Penske and Mark Donahue started with the Camaro in the Trans Am racing series over 40 years ago. Make us proud buddy!

Ohhhh.... this ought to make for some good racing with Mustang.

So I gotta ask seeing how the LS3 has 20+ HP on the 5.0 Cammer in the Mustang, are they letting you guys run unrestricted, or is power to weight ratio comparable with the field with an unrestricted engine?

Bossco-
The Mustang is making a lot more power than they list it.. That is only "as it comes from the factory" not after years of development.

We are working the weights/rules as we speak. If you download the current car list and rule set, you will notice the Camaro isn't even on it yet!

Set your DVR to record "Koni Challenge" races on Speed Channel (unless you are into watching commercials, in which case just tune in).

It's on at noon on some days, and 3AM on others. Either way, I'm not available to watch. So whether I like commercials or not, the DVR is the answer.

I just scheduled mine to record.
