Horse Crazy: Look out, Ashley Smiley can take any horse and make it perform
MUSTANGS! - speed, performance, and winning are what we demand from them. It's an affliction which a large number of guys seem to get caught up with in their youth and never seem to out grow. No matter how fast we go, no matter how much money we spend, and no matter how much our significant others want to kill us, we're just never satisfied. We just have to go faster and we'll sell our souls to do it. You know how it is when your driving down that certain hi-way with her and Joe Camaro pul...

[05/06/2001] [Live Coverage] NMRA Columbus 2001 - Saturday - Record Breaking Qualifying!



Pro Racer, Chuck Samuels
May 5, 2001: The NMRA race in Columbus officially got under way today. Three rounds of qualifying were completed and bracket races were run. New cars debuted including that of Bill Glidden''s fresh 2001 Mustang. Glidden''s initial outing can be considered a success as he finished out the day as the number two qualifier. However, the big news in Pro 5.0 would come from Chuck Samuel''s 89 coupe. In the final round of qualifying, Samuel caused the jaws of other racers and spectators alike to drop in amazement. The reason being his 206.45 mph passes! It was only two months ago that both he and John Gullet would break through the 200 mph barrier at the same race, however someone forgot to tell Samuel to stop there apparently. The ET that went along with this 206.45 mph was 7.067 seconds and with it the number one qualified position. J.R. Granetelli''s entry is unique in that it utilizes Modular power for motivation and as such, also carries the distinction of being the smallest engine in the field. Granetelli''s number four position at the end of the day shows that he can run with the Pro 5.0 boys. Granetelli also backs another Pro 5.0 car but this one with more conventional power on board. Bill Rimmer had his new car at the event and qualified just behind another new car, that of Don Walsh Jr. Walsh''s a 2001 Mustang has replaced familiar yellow coupe and this was its first race. Number three Derrick Smith and number eight qualifier Blake Wilder rounded out the field. Jim Summers'' 98 GT was in the number seven position which pits him against Bill Glidden tomorrow.
