Grand Am Ohio

I guess no changes were made to the rules before this weekend at Mid-Ohio? The Mustangs are still suck in the middle of the pack, like many others races so far this year. Roush cars turning the best times, showing in 11th and 12th. Racers Edge no. 05 car is looking good posting second best Mustang times for the two practice sessions. That is a brand new re-build coming off an accident at the last race, good job there.

Even if changes are made, at this point there is little hope for a Mustang championship this year.

They got +2mm allowance in restrictor size. From 55mm TO 57mm.

I guess a whole two MM's was not enough, need to look up about the weight also. There was talk of weight and the restrictor changing but no revs. At least there were three Mustangs in the top 10, been a while since we have seen that as far as I can remember.
 
Not to change the subject but I didn't see it mentioned on the forum...

I'd like to mention what a great job Billy Johnson did in the Nationwide race at Road America last weekend. Running with the leaders until a pit lane speed penalty put him way back. then he ran his Mustang back to the front and had a good shot at the win until he got spun out on turn five in the closing laps.

A terrific drive!

The 302Rs got 500 RPMs back post-Ohio, rev limit now 8000 again.

I just heard there was a change made after the Ohio race. Maybe the Mustangs can run in the top five now.

There is no doubt that Billy is one of the best out there!
 
Well wet practice sessions will not tell us how the Mustangs will run this weekend but the number 51 was second fastest in the second session. It was over two seconds slower the the top car due to changing conditions. The Phoenix Boss was in the top ten both sessions, secondin the first session

Lets hope we can finally see a Mustang running up front or even getting more then five seconds on camera this weekend!
