Background & Plans
This was the car I drove when I attended the GT350 Track Attack at UMC back in Oct '18. When I learned that the school was going to halt the program and sell some of the cars, I pestered them for months until I was finally offered the chance to buy "my" car. After attending the school, someone asked me how I liked it and I replied that "I beat on that car like a rented mule." So, once it was officially my car, the name returned and stuck. The Mule, as it's now affectionately known, is a dedicated track car that has brought me back to the track after a twelve year hiatus. We've already been to Road America, Autobahn Country Club, and Gingerman, with other events at Barber Motorsports Park, Blackhawk Farms, and a return to Road America to finish out the season. My goal is to keep the FPRS livery in place so that the car lives on as a testimony to it's history, but to continue developing it mechanically and from a safety perspective so that it's a finely honed track weapon someday.
