In Super Street Outlaw Gary Rohe defeatedMike Smith. Rohe''s blue 80 Mustang, a familiar car to those who followNMCA racing, went 8.20 @ 169.19 mph in the finals. One of the most popularclasses in Mustang racing is EFI Renegade and Columbus had lots of them!Tim Lyons'' 88 Mustang took the win over Mike Post with a 9.187 @ 148.53 mph.In Drag Radial the top two cars met up in the finals. Chris Little''s brightgreen 90 coupe emerged the victor. Little bested Spence Hart by running8.968 @ 156.81 mph. Did we mention that was on a drag radial? Yikes!

While blowers, turbos, and nitrous are all the rage, there are stillthose who make their power the old fashioned way. They play in Hot Streeton race day and on this day Brian Booze''s 92 Mustang took the win. Boozewent 9.447 @ 148.53 MPH to take out Ed Kowalczyk.

In the meantime over the other side of the track, theManufacturer''s Midway continued with large displays of lots of go fastgoodies. A car show featured many meticulously detailed street machineswith lots of chrome and fancy paint jobs if that''s your preference. Nowthat the NMRA Columbus event has been held for the past three years, apattern is emerging. This is the place to be each spring if you are aMustang fanatic!
