The battle between big block Chevy and Mopar in Super Competition Eliminator. Things are getting tense, with a must win situation for the top 4.

I notice the yellow stang has got skinny rear tyres, relatively speaking. What's the story?

We can't fit any bigger, as they don't fit. Remember, this is a stock Mustang with
leave springs, full interior etc, so we don't want to cut or excessively modify the car.
We fitted Cal-tracs that work very well getting this 2 tons of Ford moving, and from the picture below you can see the tires wrinkling nicely.

Not to bad a days work for the muscle car racing.

First for me in the Challenger and third for Mark in the Comaro in Super Competition Eliminator. A very good second place for Bradley in the Fox in Competition Eliminator in his rookie year.
