Default a couple pics from NMRA Houston, TX

This past weekend the NMRA hosted an event at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, TX. My father attended with my 06 S281 race car and our 2010 Speedlab Mustang. He said it was a really big event and there were a ton of Saleen cars there. We had a few guys hanging out with us over the weekend and my friend Kathy took some really cool pics i wanted to share with you guys!

It was a GREAT weekend for Saleens at the NMRA event in Houston.
JDM was represented in-force with JimIII's yellow-terror, the '10 Super Shaker car, and the Saleen concept truck.

JDM rolled out the red carpet for us Saleen owners and spent quite a bit of time talking to us about their cars and letting us do a photoshoot with the team vehicles in their pit area.

And Saturday nite they cleared all the toys out and rolled out a generous BBQ banquet, open to anybody that was staying at the track that nite.

Some of my favorite pics from the event:

JimIII's car grabbing some air:


The 2010 SuperShaker car:


The one-of-one Saleen concept truck:


Jim Sr. really treated us well and was very approachable and willing to answer all of our questions. I was floored when the man literally gave me the very shirt off his back.....



JDM made alot of new friends down here in Tejas and we hope to see them back soon!

Group photos:

In the carshow, several of the Saleens took honors.

I believe Meikol02 took second in the Saleen/Roush/Steeda class bested only by a brand-new-no-mod P51 Roush.

My car took Best Engineered, which was a tribute to Saleen, not to me. All Saleens are engineering marvels, but I think the judges understood that a 94 S351 is a very unique car because of the engine swap that Ford wouldn't do (except in a few Cobra R race cars). So hats off to Saleen for this one

Thanks for posting the pics! Did your dad in your car beat Dyno Joe? (I think thats his name in the Edelbrock bannered car)

And love the new cover of Jan MMFF. I was there at Etown running my best times when that pic of your 25th Anniv Saleen Stang was taken.

What did the new 2010 Red car turn?

Geez Joe, you forgot I won best paint for that same class!

So my son got to accept TWO awards and wave to all his fans on the "Victory lap" we did in front of the stands. That was his favorite part. It was great Man time, and the first time I entered in a judged event. Thanks again Joe for the invite.

Doh! Well I'm old so i have an excuse....
A VERY deserving Best Paint I must say.
That Vista Blue would be my choice for any S197 hands down.
Congrats!
