Pro outlaw 10.5
The long anticipated arrival of the Garrett Turbochargers 10.5W Mustang driven by Ron Lummus finally ended when the West Coast racers showed up at Joliet. The Ron and Garrett crew had trouble making a clean pass and looked to be on the fast track to an early exit. That was before Ron's second qualifying pass when he ran a 6.86 at 208 mph. The Garrett Mustang doesn't really scream race car from the exterior, but the car screamed down the track the rest of the weekend until a transmission line let go in the final, sending fluid under the rear tires and the car into a series of back-and-forth spins, reminiscent of Steve Matusek's wild ride. However, Ron was still able to get the win over Conrad Scarry. In the Super Bowl Shootout, Ron was unable to match Mark Micke's Pro Street Camaro.
