  1. 03-04 Mach 1 Showdown Event

    This will be an event between 2003-2004 Mach 1 Mustangs scheduled to take place September 21st, 2007 at Norwalk Raceway Park (NHRA Track) located in Norwalk, Ohio. The idea started from the Mach 1 Registry Owners Club by Bill P. (screen name Linemup) to have a 2007 showdown between 03-04 Mach 1’s. Bill P. is also financing the track rental at Norwalk, which will cost $3580 to have this event. There is no cost for all race class entries or to anyone else that shows up to this event. If enough Mach 1 owners show up at this event, we are planning a car show also. You do not have to race in classes at this event. You can run open track if you like. Concession stand will be open during the Showdown. Sunoco race fuels will be available at the track and Harlow Racing Tire located on the track property, will be open.

    On Saturday September 22nd, there will be a dyno day shootout between the class entries. Primary sponsor Jeff & Tammy Chambers of CRT Performance, will be conducting this dyno shootout at their Mustang Dyno shop performance facility. CRT Performance will be giving free dyno pulls (2 pulls each) to all class winners for Saturday’s dyno shootout. The cost to all others that participate in the dyno shootout or just want their Mach 1 dynoed, is $50 for 2 good pulls. This includes checking air/fuel ratio. If anyone that drives their Mach to this event breaks down while running, Jeff Chambers will do what he can to get your Mach 1 fixed. CRT Performance is located about 2 miles from the track and Jeff will have a spare trailer at the track if your vehicle breaks. They are also planning on grilling out for everyone during the afternoon, while this dyno shootout takes place.

    This event will consist of 5 heads up classes and 1 bracket class. The track will be sprayed & prepped prior to opening at 9:00 am for open track. Then at 11:30 am, the track will be sprayed & prepped for a second time. At noon, the Showdown classes will begin. When the classes are completed, the remainder of time will be open track until 4:00 pm.

    There will be prizes & trophies for the winners & runner up of each class. Friday evening, there will be an awards ceremony & get together for all class entries, members, guests or Mach 1 owners who show, hosted by Jeff & Tammy Chambers. Norwalk will be holding a Friday night Test & Tune starting at 6:00 pm for $12.00 for anyone interested in running in the evening.
