OKLAHOMA CITY – The July 9th Solo Cross event at Remington Park had 7 OMC members competing along with a few more members in attendance as spectators. Most of the members competed in the CAM-C (Classic American Muscle – Contemporary class) and a few registered into the Novice class. Once again the course design was fast and challenging to both driver and car. Throughout the 8 runs, OMC members challenged top spots in the class by tenths of seconds. CJ Abad (2013 GT) was able to break into the 39 second range and on his last run finished with his best run of 39.424 earning 3rd spot in the class. Tyler Garling (2001 GT) was also able to achieve the 39 second range with a best clean run of 39.971 and 5th in class. Greg Blocker (2016 GT350) was unable to break the 39 second barrier and finished with a best of 40.110 and 6th place. Zac Blocker (2005 GT) decided to compete in CAM-C running on his everyday street tires finishing with a respectable best of 40.280 and 7th place. Michael Springer (2012 Boss 302) installed new suspension since the last solo event and was able to finish with a best time of 43.807 in 9th place.
Alan Spaulding (2016 GT) competed in his first event finishing with a best time of 41.169 and 4th overall in Novice class. Shawn McCoy (2004 Mach 1) also competed in Novice class with a best time of 42.660 and 10th place.
Thanks to all the members who attended and please contact Greg Blocker with any questions regarding upcoming Solo events.

OMC High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) – Half dozen or so members of the Oklahoma Mustang Club found their way to Heartland Park Topeka over Memorial Day weekend with the National Auto Sports Association (NASA) Central Region. OMC members Fred and Theresa Marshall, Larry and Jean Elliott, Arturo Cortez, Scott McMurran and club president Allen King all took their Mustangs on a short 5 hour drive north to Topeka KS. While there, they spent 2 days driving on the newly paved 2.5 mile road course. Next up for our road racers, Hallett Motor Racing Circuit on Sunday June 4th and Saturday 17th. On June 17th, the OMC will be doing a pony drive and picnic at Hallett while several club members will be driving their Mustangs on the track. So! Have you’ve ever wondered what its like to drive on a road race course? Come on out to Hallett with the club and at lunch time, you can drive on the course for 2 parade laps. It’s fun, fun fun!
This weekend’s forecast – heavy rains predicted for Friday evening and rains continuing into Saturday morning. Not many folks want to bring their show ready, clean and shiny vehicles out on a wet day. So, with that said, we regret that we are postponing this years Bob Moore All Ford Car and Truck Show by a couple of weeks to June 3rd. It will be at the same location, Bob Moore Ford at SE 89th and I35, same time, 9 am – 3 pm. We are sorry if this causes any inconveniences, but for those that registered, we’ll see you on June 3rd! If you’re unable to make it, please email email@example.com and we’ll mail you the tshirt you paid for.
