Earlier this month at the South Georgia Motorsport Park, the annual Pony Wars event pitted some of the best American muscle machines in a showdown celebration that had Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers facing off against each other. This year’s event was held under the hot and steamy Georgia sun, nevertheless, the heat did not deter any of the competitors as we had another record crowds from being in attendance. Over the years, the annual Pony Wars event has evolved to become THE celebration of American muscle cars and this year’s occurrence was even more popular with more cars and more excitement than ever with Ford, GM, and Mopar enthusiasts all convening for a full day of drag racing, car shows, and muscle car excitement!
This year’s event was even extra-special in that we were raising money for the That Others May Live (TOML) Foundation – a charity that provides critical support, scholarships, and immediate tragedy assistance for the families of United States Air Force Rescue Heroes who are killed or severely wounded in operational or training missions.
Special thanks should be provided to the Nation of Stangs Car Club for hosting the Ford, GM, and Mopar car show at the event – their support and generosity is most appreciated as they are fully committed to preserving the legend of the Mustang: past, present & future and that they did at this event!
When the sun was finally setting, there were some definite winners in the various drag racing categories and show classes. In the Quick 16 class Randy Thomas in his GT500 took out Chris Harter in his Corvette. Mel White in his 1966 Mustang beat Dan Perry in his Mustang to take honors in the Quick Street win. Steeda’s own Bill Jones and his trusty Falcon “Dirty Bird” defeated Blake Ennis in his Mustang for the Hot Street win. And in the Street class Chris Smith defeated Travis Stepp in his Camaro to take the title.
Congratulations to the following show car show winners: (Ford) Mike Haynes with his 2009 GT500, (GM) Gary Prine 2010 Camaro, and (Mopar) Christopher Fones 2010 Challenger SRT8.
