Fun Ford Weekend hits the beach! Palm Beach International Raceway Results

In spite of the fact that Mother Nature tried to rain on our fun, the Fun Ford Weekend event at Palm Beach International Raceway escaped the deluge that was hamming the eastern coast of Florida and enjoyed dry skies for two days of Ford fun at the inland track’s location.

Once again, the weekend was presented by Roush Yates, JE Pistons and Joe Gibbs Driven, but this event also featured the first ever Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine Mustang Triathlon event. These competitors were divided into three different classes: stock, modified and prepared and were challenged to compete in three totally different events.

The three events included an autocross laid out on the northern section of Palm Beach International Raceway road course, followed by an high-speed “speed / stop challenge” and then capped with three, back-to-back-to-back drag racing passes. Drivers raced each event, scoring a “finishing position” similar to the Olympics. After all three events, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals were awarded in each class based upon their average finishing position over the course of all three events.

Look for a COMPLETE write up of the Mustang Triathlon event in a future issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fasts Fords magazine.

Meanwhile, Ford racers from all across the SE US were slugging it out on drag strip, while the all-FoMoCo car show was surrounded by more than 50 midway vendors and manufacturers, with a swap meet offered up a wide assortment of used go-fast parts from local vendors and racers.
