    I think the Shootout was good. I'm always open for change more or less no matter what it is just for the sake of change, but that doesn't take away from what it was for me. The only thing I wanted to do was race and I couldn't do that so the rest was just general entertainment for me.

    Personally I have no interest in a dyno competition. There was a time when the dyno competition was really there to a) facilitate tuning, and b) put a sock in some of the big mouths who claimed big HP numbers but could never back it up. Other than that it's a bit like the Chinese auction - fun if you like that sort of thing - but doesn't prove anything and in fact I think it encourages people to take unnecessary risks with their vehicles. I'd rather spend more time at the track or more time just hanging out and BS'ing. That's just my opinion of course.

    Check your bills, folks. Just sayin'.

    This would be an event maybe we should start to look at partially combining into, as this gets the attention of Ford Performance. Noted several times 1 MN12 attended.

    I would like the idea of inviting more cars. Between work and my SC not running I never got to join in in a shootout. I have attended one and plan to bring the SC someday.

    I own a late model SHO, a first gen Lightning, a mark VIII, and a SC also just sold a 2013 Mustang GT.

    After hanging out with people who own the same cars at car shows, events, and racing. I have met a ton of great people. And I will say NOT ALL but some or a lot of mustang guys are not friendly and think they are too good for out hers.

    Now SHO, Lightning and Mark VIII owners I have met seem to be more like the SC guys usually family guys with a interest in there car and not looking cool.

    I am in contact daily with one of the guys that helps run KYhorsepower club/website. I know in the past we tagged along with their spring meet and that is how several of you guys were able to visit Clay City and see the track for yourselves. Even with it being on the NMRA weekend I think there would be a few of the "Mustang" guys that would be up for a day at the track to help with the cost. The number can be limited to whatever we want and they can even run in the bracket if we so choose. Just an idea to toss out there and I can make it happen if there is interest.
