Default 2009 East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout

2009 East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout

Announcement

Five Guys Racing is pleased to announce the First Annual East Coast S197 Mustang Shootout at Rockingham Dragway 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.

The event was originally intended to focus on the 4.0L and 4.6L naturally aspirated S197's with six index, side-by-side race classes. However, due to popular demand the forced induction crowd is invited to participate in six additional classes for added excitement. The facility will manage a Sportsman ladder, and racers will face a .5 Pro Tree, half second indexes, and no breakout rules in effect. 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. Other awards are also being developed for items such as "best 60 foot", "longest road trip to the event", etc.



The following classes have been developed:

Grudge Matches!
Concerned about get eliminated early on? Don't be. Instead, please join some of the well known S197 racecar drivers and our other special guests in the non-award category. Call out a buddy (or a nemesis) for some straight-up heads up racing action. No one to call out? Just keep making "time trial" passes as if you are at a private rental. Everyone will have plenty of opportunity to race all day!







NA Classes
Street Sleeper - 14.000 and slower (4.0L Cars Only)

Pure Street - 13.999 - 13.500

Street - 13.499 - 13.000

Modified Street - 12.999 - 12.500

Super Street - 12.499 - 12.000

Street Eliminator - 11.999 and faster


Power Adder Classes
Street Renegade - 12.500 and slower

Street Hoodlum - 12.499 - 12.000

Street Sheriff - 11.999 - 11.500

Street Bandit - 11.499 - 11.000

Wild Street - 10.999 - 10.500

Street Outlaw - 10.499 and faster



Event rules, current class descriptions and as well as full registration information can be found on our website using the "Event Detail" navagation button or visiting our forum. Check back periodically as further information regarding entry fees, driver’s meeting, lodging and other items will be become available.

Hey Guys,
Just a quick heads-up. Our friends over at Fore Precision Works has donated a set of Billet Al Fuel Rails as a class prize. Whoo Hoo! With a retail value of almost $200, This is going to be one heck of a prize for one very lucky, and very fast driver!

Once we make a selection as to what class will be the lucky group, I'll get a "Prize" page setup and give you all an update.

Good luck..

Spaz

Shoot...we need events like this up here in the land of no oxygen. The only event that has a decent mustang showing is the Fun Ford Weekend at Bandimere, but that's about it.

Hey Guys, Sorry I have not been over here for awhile. Work has been ultra busy lately.

If we have success with this event, we are going to start doing 5-6 events a year, all around the country. If you can't make it to this one, keep an eye out for when we get closer.

We have had some people complain that they do not want to build a class specific car for this event. That is completely understandable, esp since we really want to put an event together for th avg Joe and his DD. Because we see and recognize the need for classes ranging from 15 second cars to 10 second cars, we are revamping the classes to better suit the needs of the drivers.

We are having a meeting this Saturday to hack out the specifics. I will post the updates within a week.

I just want to thank EVRYONE for their interest. Our goal is to have an event everyone can enjoy. I will get back to you all very soon with the update to the rules and classes.

Yea, it was the wheels. They were beautiflul. I had to sell them though. The where to far out of round for high speeds. Once I got up over 125-130 mph, they felt like the car was shaking apart. They are great for a street car though.

Hey folks, just a quick update. By popular demand we have greatly simplified the rules for this event. Any mods are allowed and the classes are being setup by ET, not your mods. Check out the updates to the first post and our site at http://fiveguysracing.com.

Thanks,
Spaz

Hey everyone, I wanted to touch base with you, just to clear a few things up. There has been some confusion over who is invited to come and play at this event. It is true that this event is focused on the “street driven” naturally aspirated 2005+ S197 Mustangs. Although this event only has trophy classes for 2005 and up Mustangs (NA and FI), this event is open to all Ford vehicles with a Ford power plant.

For any non-S197 vehicles or full blown race cars, you will be able to run Grudge Matches against your buddy (or nemesis) or run open time trials (like a rental or test & tune) between competitive runs.

I hope this helps clear things up, I apologize for the confusion. I hope to see you all at the track.

Thanks Again!
Spaz

Hey Everyone! We are 3 months away from our race on Nov 1. I really appreciate all of the support you have given us with regard to this event. It looks like it is going to be a great time.

We are at a point where it is going to be crucial to get a good head count of racers. You don't have to pre-pay (although it is an option) but we really need people to pre-register. This is going to be important as far as concessions are concerned on track day, as well as the Halloween party the night before, the after party the day of, and things of that nature.

This is a ZERO OBLIGATION process. Due to you not having to pay to pre-register, if something comes up and you can't make it for any reason, it is not a problem. However, we do want to make sure everyone has the best time possible. So we need a possible head count.

If you have any interest in coming, please pre-register on the registration page of the event site at the link below.

Thanks Again!

Hey everyone, just a quick heads-up... The Street Jam Racing Series “2009 East Coast S197 Shootout” host by Five Guys Racing is just 3 weeks away!

If you haven't registered yet, check out the registration thread listed below.

http://www.s197-mustang.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4

If you would like to pre-pay as well, this will help you save a few dollars and get you all of your paperwork prior to the event. You can pre-pay at the link below.

http://www.s197-mustang.com/registration.htm

We are really excited! This event will be incredible. Between our awesome sponsors, Mustang Enthusiast Magazine, and our friends at 1320 photography, we are going to have the track all day and have a lot of fun.

Don't forget, this is going to be the ONLY event we have that is non-points based. Keep an eye on our site after this event and through the winter months, as we will be announcing or event line-up for next year to include the venues, the points system, series registration information, and the all important Heads-up Racing Classes and rules.

Unlike 2009, all 2010 events will be based on vehicle modification classes and true, full blown, first guy across the line wins, heads-up racing. However, something that will not change is our dedication to you, the people and the cars. This series will continue to be operated at a zero profit margin and focus on "Street Driven" cars for the average Joe.

We are doing this for you, and we can't do it without you. So, check us out on-line, and see you November 1st at Rockingham Dragway!
