Don Walsh and Mike Murillo are two of our Mustang heroes. To see both of them racing at the Super Bowl was a treat in itself. With Mike being the last surviving Mustang in the Pro Outlaw 10.5 class, he was lined up against the winner of the NMCA's Pro Street class, which happened to be Don Walsh Jr. We were shocked to find out the two had never raced each other in competition all these years--Don always raced Pro 5.0, while Mike competed in Super Street Outlaw until the last few years in 10.5W-style classes. It was truly a historical moment to witness the two Mustang drag racing legends lined up against each other, but their Super Bowl match-up was hugely important since it would decide which sanctioning body would come out victorious. Both cars left strong, but Don's Pro Street Mustang hurt a converter around half-track, handing the Super Bowl win to Mike Murillo and the NMRA. Don's problems were, of course, unfortunate, but we were happy the NMRA take the Super Bowl win.
