SCCA Nationals Spec Mustang Series Update

Regional 1 & 2 @ Thunderhill
March 3-4, 2018

“Looks like it was another exciting weekend racing the Spec Mustang with Sports Car Club of America – San Francisco Region at Thunderhill Raceway! The group as a whole is getting faster, with AV8 Supercars drivers Clark Nunes, Ken Pederson and Don Van Nortwick locking out the top three spots in qualifying for the start of race # 1! Additionally, last years championship runner-up, Mike Lowe, posted his fastest time EVER around the track in his new Spec Mustang during race # 2!” ~Spec Mustang

“Spec Mustang family member Clark Nunes draws first blood at the National level with his win at Willow Springs International Raceway this past weekend for the SCCA Majors event!”~Spec Mustang

 

Major @ Thunderhill
April 7-8, 2018

“Man oh man, what a weekend of racing!! The Spec Mustang’s really put on a show this weekend running in the SCCA Majors presented by Casino Fandango, where they ran in their National “T2” Class trim which makes them eligible for the upcoming Sonoma SCCA Runoffs 2018. The group had some heavy hitters out with Addison Lee, Roger Eagleton, Beau Borders, David Ray, Clark Nunes, Ken Pederson & Russ Peterson all bringing their “A” game and putting on a great display of close racing that left the announcer and spectators breathless for a large part of the race! Beau Borders and Willow Springs race winner Clark Nunes stole the show with their 35 minutes of back and forth racing that was ultimately decided by a smart set up and pass on the last corner of the last lap with Beau Borders just edging out Clark for position. Upfront, Addison Lee and Roger Eagleton demonstrated to the crowd that you don’t need a tiny Miata to enjoy wheel to wheel, door to door, bumper to bumper, close and clean racing because you can find all that and more with these big, V8 powered Ford Spec Mustangs!” ~Spec Mustang

 

Regional 5 & 6 @ Thunderhill
April 21-22, 2018

“It was a busy but good weekend for Spec Mustang drivers at Races 5 & 6 – SCCA San Francisco Championship at Thunderhill Raceway! Relative newcomer to the series, Igor Gandzjuk, showed some true grit and determination late last year and early this year as he struggled with electrical gremlins that prevented him from showing his true speed out on the track. However, as his solid second place finish on Sunday has shown, those electrical gremlins are a thing of the past and he can now focus on racking up those podiums and trophies in his bad ass orange and black Spec Mustang!! Series veteran Clark Nunes also put on an impressive display by qualifying on pole for Sundays race and went on to lead every lap on the way to a well deserved victory!

The Spec Mustang’s will be back in action this coming weekend at the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour event at Buttonwillow Raceway Park which is being hosted by the Southern California SCCA Chapter, better known as Cal Club! Spec Mustang drivers Addison Lee, David Ray, Russ Peterson, Don Van Nortwick, Beau Borders, Clark Nunes, Roger Eagleton and many others will be competing in the Touring 2 Class.

If the excitement of the Touring 2 Class race two weeks ago at Thunderhill Raceway was any indication of whats to come, then you can be sure that there will be some close and great wheel to wheel, door to door action going on throughout the weekend!” ~Spec Mustang
