Four races into the 2006 season Darrell Peterson is undefeated in Fun Ford Weekend Street Warrior Class action, with a perfect 4-0 record. The Palm Beach Gardens, Florida resident has once again clearly demonstrated that the price of victory is high, but so are the rewards. Darrell, along with Thunder Autosports owner Steve Lee and long time friend and teammate, Brian Mcafee worked long and hard over the off-season to make their Mustang faster than last year. Winning the Class Championship in 2004-05 has not taken the competitive edge from this group.
Running out of Lee’s Thunder Autosports facility in Boynton Beach, Florida, the team added a new, potent EFI setup and new cam tweaks to make their already fast Mustang, even faster. Equipped with some new Steeda Hardcore suspension pieces, the production based Mustang consistently records outstanding 1.29 60 foot times, no matter what track they race on. A trip to to the Steeda Autosports Campus to dial the suspension in to handle the increased power has paid huge dividends. With a bright, new paint scheme that really enhances their Mustang, the Thunder Autosports crew feels their future is bright as they head to the next Fun Ford Weekend in Richmond, Virginia, June 24-25.
