The Southern Hills Marriott serves as the Mid-America host hotel, and the lobby is always filled with interesting Mustangs and Fords. One of the showcases this year was the record-setting '69 Mach 1 that Mickey Thompson ran on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1968. The car started life as a '69 prototype and still has many of its original parts. Recently restored by Randy Roberts, the historic car is owned by Ford race-car collector Brent Hajek.
