Just giving you guys a heads up the V6 Ford Challenge is again back in Canada this year being held at TMP in Cayuga. We are holding it on the same weekend as the Canadian Street Car Nationals on August 25th, the CSC Nat's are Aug 24-26th so you can show up Friday to test and tune if you like, but thats extra. Saturday will be a busy day, lots of fast cars including a jet car again. Basically instead of renting the track ourselves we are getting a class at this race for our V6's but its lots of public exposure. We are just having the one class this year again, cause we never get enough cars wanting to run heads up. So Bracket racing it will be this year. Piston trophies are up for grabs as usual. Money will be awarded as well just not sure how much yet. Racing fee's will be posted soon too.

We are told we are getting magazine coverage in Modified Mustangs magazine, not sure how big of an article but Joe DaSilva who is putting on the race is an editor for the mag and toldme personally he will give us a write up. So come out and support the V6 and have some funand see some wild rides in the process. Camping on site, Live music Saturday night as well.

Talked with Joe DaSilva today abot the race. Here is what is happening. This is gonna be cool. All the classes are gonna compete against themselves like usual, so V6's against V6's, Cobra's against Cobra's Lightning's against Lightning's etc etc etc. Same as always, but whats cool is this year is the winner of each car group will then compete in a final class of winners to determine the overall bracket champion. A V6 will be in the running.

So the V6FC class will have its winner and runner up as usual, along with other special trophies for other BESTS like every year, but added onto that, the winner will have a chance to compete for the overall bracket champion. Joe will have a special trophy for that, but we are still having our trophies for the V6FC Class.

If you buy a weekend pass which is $60 CDN you get into test and tune and racing for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am getting the weekend pass so I can test and tune Friday. $60CDN is not a bad deal considering the venue, music, free camping, entertainment, jet car etc etc. Our usuall fee was $50US which was about $60 CDN, so for the US drivers its a few dollars more due to Bush and his killing the US dollar Things will go a lot smoother and faster this year due to the way the classes will be run, I know last year we didn't get as many runs as we had hoped. This year plans to be much better. Joe realized he had too many classes last year.

The more people we get the more money will be given out Joe says. He isnot shy when it comes to giving away money, heck he gave an extra $100 to our long distance winner last year on top of our money so thats cool. Not sure what he plans on doing for the prize money exactly, I know the overall bracket champion is getting money, and we plan on giving away cash for the V6 Champion as well, usually its $300, I didn't get to talk to Joe too long today but I am hoping its in that range again, even if I have to put up the cash like I did last year.

I really like the idea of an overall champion, a V6 will get to run against the top cars of each class, so thats pretty cool.
