After a season hampered by weather problems, including an almost total washout at the Atco, New Jersey, event in August, the NMRA was thrilled to head into its World Finals with weather predictions for clear and dry skies. And that's what they got during a beautiful weekend at the beautiful Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
With great weather in the heart of the Ford-rich Midwest, the NMRA's Laurel Mountain Mustang Auto Show attracted a full field of Mustangs and Fords, allowing the NMRA to hand out First and Second Place trophies for nearly all of its many show categories. Joe Davis was a big winner with his '75 Mustang II Mach 1 as he took a Top 20 award on Saturday, along with Best '71-'78 Mustang and Mustang Monthly's Editor's Choice on Sunday.
