AmericanMuscle Raises Over $60,000 For Make-A-Wish At Maple Grove Raceway

Mohnton, Pa. – Mustangs from 1964-1/2 to 2017 filled Maple Grove Raceway last month for the 8th Annual AmericanMuscle Car Show. AM2016 was packed full of customized Mustangs, hardcore enthusiasts, popular vendors, and even a few automotive celebrities, who all braved the heat to make for one of the most memorable shows. As always, charity was a large portion of the show which made for an awesome car reveal and raising $60,200 benefiting Make-A-Wish®. AM2016 featured:

• Over 1,700 Mustangs
• A burnout contest, revving competition, drag racing, & dyno contest
• Two Mustang Celebrities
• A Make-A-Wish® surprise car reveal
• $60,200 raised for charity

AM2016 had two automotive celebrities in attendance, who signed countless autographs for fans throughout the show. Chip Foose, legendary hot rod hall of famer, was at the show with his signature personality. Professional Drifter and all around gearhead Vaughn Gittin Jr. was ‘ready to rock’, bringing a few of his signature Mustangs along with him. Both Chip Foose and Vaughn Gittin Jr. picked out their favorite Mustangs of the show, with Chip picking a 1970 Boss 302 and a Vaughn picking out a 2015 EcoBoost.

Some exhibition drag races put on a performance for all the attendees by running some blistering fast 1/4-mile times. Everything from a Shelby GT500, Shelby GT350, two GTs and supercharged F-150 made a trip down the strip, with some surprising outcomes. The drag races were wrapped up by an awe inspiring performance from Ernie Bogue's "Beast From The East" jet dragster that screamed down the drag strip in 5.5 @ 298 MPH.

However, AM2016 wasn’t just about celebrating America’s favorite pony car, it was also about charity. AM2016 helped to raise $60,200 for Make-A-Wish®, while also packing in a few automotive themed surprises. Mustang enthusiast and Make-A-Wish® recipient Austin was presented with a reveal of his AmericanMuscle overhauled Mustang, that was completely customized inside and out. From getting a special factory Ford color, set of RTR Tech 7 Wheels, Airlift Suspension System, and a long list of other mods, Austin’s 2005 V6 Mustang was totally transformed into a one-off Mustanger’s dream. Make-A-Wish® recipients were also treated to a parade ride along down the drag strip before the exhibition races in convertible Mustangs, helping to put an excellent focus on the charity.

Mark Williams Enterprises Powermaster Performance  

It was fifty years ago in 1964 when Denver racer Mark Williams decided to quit his machinist job at John Bandimere, Sr’s speed emporium and go into business for himself building race cars. In the ensuing years Mark Williams Enterprises became the “go to” shop for High Country racers. In addition to the fuel dragster he campaigned with the late Bill Rice, racers like the Kaiser Bros., John Abbott, Vern Moats, Vern & Brian Raymer and Motes & Williams demonstrated the prowess of M-W’s chassis'. The word spread, and soon racers like “Ohio George” Montgomery and Florida’s Jerry Gwynn were winning NHRA events with Mark Williams’ chassis. Williams himself won the Division V Top Fuel Championship when partnered with Larry Frazier. \

Spotlight on The Nostalgia Drag Racing League
The Nostalgia Drag Racing League (NDRL) is a Midwest-based organization that emulates the early days of the sport, not only in style but in spirit as well.

NDRL members come from far and wide in the US and Canada, to compete in four classes with Front Engine Dragsters, Funny Cars, Altereds, Gassers and early Pro Stock lookalikes. The program has grown to a five race series held at events such as the Nostalgia Rendezvous at Gateway Motorsports Park, the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, the Summit Motorsports Park Blue Suede Cruise, and the Goodguys Rod and Custom Association’s return to drag racing at Beech Bend Raceway Park.

NDRL events run concurrent with other complimentary drag race and car show programs providing a highly diverse experience, typically spanning a 2 to 3 day time period. Racing classes are for 1979 and older cars with no electronics, no nitrous, and no rear engine dragsters. Front Engine Dragsters, Funny Cars, Supercharged Gassers, Altereds and early Pro Stock lookalikes are the stars at NDRL events. NDRL classes use a four tenths pro tree and a heads up racing format.

Currently there are four NDRL classes. The two top classes; Pro 7.0 and Pro 7.50, run strictly heads up. Competitors in both classes qualify for top spots on an all run ladder. Pro 7.0 cars run ¼ mile speeds exceeding 200 mph, and Pro 7.50 cars typically exceed 180 mph, with supercharged and injected cars in the mix. Front Engine Dragsters, Altereds, Door Slammers, and Funny Cars are typical of these two classes.

NDRL Pro Comp and Pro Gas classes run 8.0, 8.50, 9.0, 9.50, and 10.0 ¼ mile index times. Both classes run heads up during early rounds of eliminations and then are paired in a very close handicap format to the final round. Pro Comp consists of Dragsters, Altereds and Roadsters. Pro Gas is for door slammer Coupes and Sedans.

The next event is October 14-16, 2016 for NDRL's ET Genie Fall Finals at the 5th Goodguys Nostalgia Nationals, Beech Bend Raceway Park, Bowling Green, KY. Visit www.nostalgiadragleague.com for more information.
