Steeda Teams Dominate American Sedan

The SCCA Double Nationals were held over the July 4th Holiday Weekend at the Roebling Road road course near Savannah, Georgia.  Tom Ellis and his Steeda equipped American Sedan Mustang scored double victories, only after tough battles with defending 2004 Southeast Divisional Champion, Bob Eubanks, also piloting a Steeda equipped Mustang, who finished a close second both days.

Eliis captured the pole position for each race, but had to run door handle to door handle with Eubanks who led the second race for a few a laps, before Tom was able to get by him for the win. The weekend action was a renewal of their duel in April at Roebling Road where Eubanks won the battle of the Florida based Mustangs.

This marked the third straight pole and win for Tom Ellis, as the Pompano Beach based driver is rounding into outstanding  racing form in midseason. Equipped with the latest Steeda suspension components, including the famed 5-Link rear suspension, the patented four bolt caster/camber plates, sway bar and bumpsteer kit, his Mustang corners like it is on rails.Tom is always assured of smooth shifts with his Tri-Ax shifter equipped with the new Comfort Pro handle.

The veteran Bob Eubanks silver Mustang is also Steeda equipped and with his two second place finishes, Steeda equipped Mustangs dominated the American Sedan winners podium.

The battle for the Southeast Division Championship continues at the beautiful Virginia International Raceway Facility in Danville, Virginia. on August 5-7.

Burnett & Moore go Five for Five in 2005!

Neither rain nor snow nor anything the competition has brought to the track this season seems to deter Robin Burnett from his full-on run at the championship in the NASA American Iron racing series this year. With five of the ten scheduled events already in the record books this season, we find that Burnett has captured five pole positions and won five races so far – an impressive feat in any season, more so in this case given that Burnett and team mate John Moore accomplished this impressive string of victories in a 2005 Mustang.

Ford out did themselves in producing the new platform, giving racers a chassis that is far stiffer than those found in previous Mustangs. To this Burnett and Moore added a full compliment of Steeda parts, including a Tri-Ax® Shifter with Comfort Pro Handle, front and rear Swaybars, Competition Springs, Control Arm Relocation Kit, Rear Race-Only Lower Trailing Arms, Billet Camber Adjusters, G-Trac Brace, Adjustable Panhard Bar, Bumpsteer Kit and Low Wing. The results speak for themselves, and support our ongoing commitment to offer the highest quality performance parts for any Mustang, regardless of whether it will see duty as a daily driver, or spend it’s time on the track, dominating a production-based racing series just like our associates in Michigan have done!
