We absolutely had a blast running our Mustangs around the track at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit. The highlight of the two days we spent there was the MRT Latemodel Race. We had three Stangs in this race.
1. 1993 Mustang GT
2. 2011 Mustang GT RTR
3. Project Coyote Swap: Bondurant Cobra
There were some amazingly fast Mustangs in this race that included a Terlingua Race Mustang and a few Boss 302s. At the end of the day the Project Coyote Swap got into the winners circle with a 3rd place finish at Hallett Raceway! Congrats to Scott Hubbard for driving it into the winners circle.

Road Racing wasn’t the only racing thrill the Mid-America event offers. On Saturday you had access to Tulsa Raceway Park for a day of quarter mile drag racing. Again, there were plenty of amazingly fast Stangs on this track as well. The Mid-American Shelby Meet closed out with a Car Show at the host hotel that featured some amazing late-model Mustangs and also some ultra-rare classic Shelby Mustangs!
