by Justin Banner

It’s not the first choice of those who go autocrossing or tracking, but when a Fox-body Mustang is set up right, it can make for a potent road racer. Gregg Biddlingmeier’s example is one of many he’s owned and shows what these Fords are capable of with some planning, fabrication, and execution.

K&N Mustang American Iron RTR

Fully Filtered: Dave Martis’ K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR

by Justin Banner

NASA’s American Iron series is the modern equivalent of the Trans Am Series of the 60's and 70's; where Ford, GM, and Mopar cars slug it out in American Iron (AI) and the cars follow a weight to power ratio much like our own MPTCC series. In addition to AI, NASA also has classes for American Iron Extreme (AIX), where rules are more lax and horsepower gets insane; and Spec Iron (SI), where cars are built to one specification with the 05-10 Ford Mustang being the only chassis allowed. Dave Martis competes in the AI class with his K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR and has allowed us to show you the details of his amazing ride!

Drivers gave it their all, cars put down their best times, and there were teams who were heartbroken or elated. So, who would take the fastest time around the track and who would burn out this year?

MotoIQ Radio: Mercedes Spat, the Purrari, and NASCAR's Don't Get Out Rule

by Justin Banner and Kerryann De La Cruz

Well, that didn't take long, just a few days after NASCAR implements the "don't get out of your car until instructed" rule, a driver violates that at Bristol. So, we'll talk about that and our experience with that rule at track days, along with why most major publications don't seem to understand that's a rule every where else in the racing world. We'll also talk about Ferrari vs Purrari, where Ferrari sent a "cease and desist" order to Deadmau5 about his "Nyan Cat" Ferrari. Then there is that spat between Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg that has some people mad at Nico, some mad at Hamilton, and most mad at Mercedes. We'll also have some quick news and notes of the week all on MotoIQ Radio. Got comments or questions tonight?
