Mustang vs GTO Challenge - results and photos

I went to the Mustang vs GTO Shootout today at Gainesville Raceway Park in Gainesville, Florida and had a blast! What a great turnout of Mustangs, GTO's, and some other GM product. The Mustangs far outnumbered all other makes and models. There were around 40+ Mustangs and 2 F-150 Lightnings in the Ford camp racing and about 30-35 GTO's along with some Camaros, Firebirds, Corvettes and a Silverado in the GM camp racing. There were many times that number in the parking lot who were there taking in the action as well.

The Mustangs and Lightnings kicked butt and took names

After time trials there were 4 brackets established:

The 10 second bracket was won by a Mustang
The 11 second bracket was won by a GTO
The 12 second bracket was won by a Mustang
The 13+ second bracket was won by a F-150 Lightning

Here is a link to some photos of the cars and racing:

Enjoy!

It's nice to see that horses and goats can get along together.

Actually that is exactly how it was. Just a bunch of great car people getting together to enjoy and share our hobby. There wasn't any trash talk about the other persons ride or brand bashing going on. Lots of compliments in both directions

Well if my new rear end is together I might just do that! I'd hate too break the car so far from home!
