Stock Muscle Cars (no Cobras or Corvettes)


Saturday 2/23/13 9:00 EST (6:00 PST, for those who can't count) Wink

Tuning prohibited, SH tires, NO driver aids (ABS will be on)



Select your car and post your choice here. Let's try to use them all.
We will keep track of Manufacturers points only, so don't feel that you HAVE to win. It will be Chrysler vs. GM vs. Ford at various tracks. I'm thinking several races through the night to have fun with it.


DMH has selected the 'Cuda 440 Six-Pack

PokerFace has selected the Chevelle SS 454

Crazy has selected the Camaro Z/28

RoyalFlush has selected the Camaro SS

3D has selected the Mustang Mach 1

RD has selected the Shelby Mustang GT350R

AoS has selected the Plymouth Superbird

Go-Fish has selected the Cougar XR-7

Hit-Me has selected the Challenger R/T

Still time to make your choices everyone, lots to choose from.





Points after 3rd weekend.....


GM 240


Chrysler 291



Ford 250

Well, the whole thing is to let it just kinda,slip through the turns. Any throttle will get it all excited, and you might have a hard time keeping it straight. It's a real screamer though, and can catch anything down the straights. Give it a few laps and maybe I can help you out with some more pointers.

Once you get it back from the start, save to a thumb drive. This way you will be able to have a back up to re-load in the event of a corrupted file. Take a look at the auto backup, you might be able to use it to recover from a more recent save.

Superbird it is RD! Another great choice, the Superbird is indeed the car that was a twin to the Daytona from '69. With a dual quad Hemi motor this 'bird is sure to fly!

elohel I know what you mean RD, like a kid in a candy store! AoS took the GT350, but the Superbird is all yours man. Awesome pick! I've already put you in the 'bird at the top of the post.


For anyone still mulling over what to drive, there are still some great cars left. If you show up and want to race but still don't know what to use, we'll see if anyone who has chosen a car can't make it, and you can substiute for that driver.

For insatance, if Roy can't make it, that would free up the Camaro SS, or if AoS leaves early than try the Shelby Mustang. Remember, it's a MANUFACTUERS championship, not a drivers, so let's get as many of each from the big 3 as we can!

Well, that went well didn't it? A lot of fun was had as we burned through gasoline at a rate that would set Al Gores hair on fire!

As expected, the large Chrysler contengent took the first weekend with a healthy 79 points total from the 6 races.

Ford did all they could with what they had, ringing in 64 points for a second place finish.

Unfortunatly, with only a single entry, the GM boys finished 3rd out of 3. Great job by Crazy for keeping the Camaro up front as much as he could to score a still respectable 40 points for the night.


I hope everyone had fun, we missed Poker and Roy to give the GM brand a boost, and another Ford product would had helped keep the Chrysler boys honest. It was great that Rufus showed up, and Delmar even decided to join in on the fun.

Remember to post here for which car you would like to use for the series. See the top post for a list of registerd cars and drivers. there are still some that can be used.

3D, can we swap cars with other members?

I'm willing to trade the GT350 for RD's winged Roadrunner for next Saturday's race.

Just a thought for now....Smile

Ok, so Ace wants to switch with RD, and Fish would like to use the Cougar....I'm good with that.

No problem Ace, very nice of RD to let his 'bird fly to a new home. Hope it'll work better for you.

RD, welcome to the fold. Hope your reflexes are quick, the GT350 is a bit twitchy.

Fish, glad you can make it, I'll send you a Cougar tonight when I get home. Looks like things are shaping up for FoMoCo....

Thanks for sending the boat, might be able to do some "fishin'" in it. Don't know how it'll do on the track, but will give it a hella try.

I am not please that I missed this event. Now that I can't use my work computer for this stuff, it makes it tough to be here consistently (we all share one computer now).

Sorry folks, hopefully we can redo this event.
