      SVO asked me to start this thread for him and post the first picture of his adventure to the Silver State Classic Challenge in Nevada.

      http://www.silverstateclassic.com/

      The Silver State Classic Challenge is an authorized Open Road Racing event that is run on a 90 mi (140 km) stretch of State Route 318, which is closed for the occasion.

      SVO's boss Rick will be running one of his high performance Mustangs in this event.

      Good Luck Jeff!!:salute:

      What class is your boss running? My buddy Steve took 3rd place in the Silver State 115MPH class in '06 with his '04 Mach 1. Right now he's the 2008 ESP class Champion in the PA Hillclimb Association.
