First off, with the finals being rained out in Commerce, GA, there was some unfinished business from the previous race that needed to be settled. In Renegade, it was down to Valerie Clements and A.J. Wyce, and the win would be decided in Maryland @ MIR.After a good race, Clements took the win, with Wyce in the books in the runner-up spot.
On to the events of the day, where Renegade was one of the tightest fields the class has seen in a long time, as Brian Mitchell led the 11-car field with a National Record-Setting run of 8.298 at over 169 miles per hour, while the next seven competitors were all within two tenths of each other.
Mitchell ran through his side of the field, while Adam Arndt did the same on his half of the ladder. In the final round, the pair left with almost identical reaction times, but Mitchell powered ahead to take the win light, 8.35 to 8.62.
On the show side of the event, Nikki Frost’s Vortech V-3 Si Supercharged Gotta-Have-It-Green 5.0L GT captured the awards for “Best Modern Mustang” and “Best of Show – Interior”. You may recognize Nikki’s awesome Coyote from the Vortech Superchargers booth at last year’s SEMA Show. Congratulations Nikki! Glad to see you continuing to win award after award with your gorgeous green boosted powerhouse!
Keith Fidura’s Coyote 5.0L Mustang has some really nice upgrades that set it apart from the average GT. Keith’s 2013 features Borla S-Type exhaust, a full wrap from N8VCOMP, Street Scene and 3D Carbon body pieces, Forgestar CF5 Wheels with Falken Rubber, and a big boost in power thanks to the Vortech V-3 Si System under the hood.
This sick Vortech Supercharged Fox Body with a cog drive and custom cooler setup was certainly guaranteed to grab attention! A lot of attention was clearly paid to this build. Send us more information on the car if you have it please!
