Our Mustang ended the 2011 season with an 8.32 @ 162.53 MPH win at the NMCA/NMRA Lone Star Shoot Out in Houston. With the eliminations of the NMRA Hot Street Class, the car has been temporarily parked. The future of the Mustang is undecided at the time, but a switch from a naturally aspirated class to a nitrous class is a possibility.
