Hot Rod Power Tour & the Steeda Q650

The 2011 Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour started this past week and the Steeda Q650 made an impromptu appearance when it came into Valdosta Georgia. With the second leg of the Power Tour ironically in Steeda’s backyard – at the South Georgia Motorsports park facility, it was a no-brainer that the Steeda faithful would make an appearance and be very supportive of this annual salute to American performance.

With over 2,500 people in attendance at the second leg of the tour, it is much more than just a rolling car show – it also is an event where vehicles are given the chance to perform and when you are at the South Georgia Motorsports Park, the dragstrip is where the action is. Weather was extremely hot with temperatures over 100 degrees and humidity to match…..not the best weather for maximum performance as the heat and humidity just rob every vehicle of power and torque. Nevertheless, the Steeda Q650 was able to record the fastest elapse time and highest trap speed of ALL the cars that were competing that day! With our own Scott Boda behind the wheel and the super sticky Nitto NT05 tires on the rear, Scott was able to rip an elapse time of 11.21 and a speed of over 128 mph – definitely no slouch on the track that day. Granted, the times that day were off from the Q’s best of 10.78 at over 135 mph, but you must factor in the horrible conditions that day that all of the competitors were forced to race with, the times were very respectable.

At Steeda Autosports, we salute Hot Rod Magazine and all of their loyal readers for all of the contributions that they have done to promote speed and performance that is born in America!

Save The Date – The Pony Wars

Mark your calendars and do not make any other plans – October 8, 2011 is the date for the next Pony Wars event that is being presented by Steeda Autosports.

The Pony Wars event held at the South Georgia Motorsports Park is open to any American made car from Ford, GM, and Mopar and with an expected huge turnout with some of the best performance cars around, this will most certainly be an event that will be talked about and remembered for quite a long period of time. If you have not been to one of the previous Pony Wars events – then you are missing out!

Final details are still being worked out, but suffice to say we are confident that the event will not only include a great car show and drag racing, but we are also making preliminary plans to potentially include an autocross track event!

More information will follow shortly – just save the date for a full day of automotive pleasure that you most certainly will not want to miss!

Steeda Supports the Mustang Dream Giveaway

Steeda Autosports is a pleased to announce that once again, we are proud to sponsor the Mustang Dream Giveaway Sweepstakes. In this year’s sweepstakes, two iconic Boss 302 Mustangs will be awarded TAX FREE to one lucky winner. In cooperation with Healing Heroes Network, Steeda Autosports provided performance parts and collaborated in the creation of a stunning 2012 one-of-a-kind Boss 302 Mustang, entitled the “Patriot Edition,” to honor the brave troops that serve our country. This 2012 Mustang along with the equally iconic 1969 Boss 302 Mustang are the two Mustangs that one lucky individual will receive in this charitable sweepstakes.

As we all know very well, in 1969 Ford produced a factory racer that soon became legendary, winning many races as well as the Trans-Am series championship in 1970. The Mustang Dream Giveaway team has procured an iconic 1969 Boss 302 Mustang that is being partnered with a true “one-of-a-kind” 2012 Boss Mustang specially prepared to be a highly desirable collectable car, and a muscle machine worthy of its legacy of spirited road and track performance.

The 2012 Patriot Edition Boss 302 boasts in excess of 440 horsepower and was created in the iconic image of the original 1969 Boss 302’s performance heritage. This car will feature a bevy of suspension and performance enhancements from Steeda Autosports including:

  • Steeda Tri-Ax Shifter for precise control of the powerful Boss 302 engine and it’s 6-speed transmission
  • Steeda Lower aluminum trailing arms to reduce unsprung weight and wheel hop as well as to provide enhanced suspension stability
  • Steeda Sport Springs for lowering the ride height and a firmer road grip
  • Steeda Boss 302 Cold Air Intake for increased engine performance

The 2012 Patriot Edition Mustang is serial number 1 of 1 car and is the only 2012 Boss Mustang finished in Calypso Coral. The car has other unique modifications to make it a truly one of a kind collectable. With its production overseen by the Ford Corporate Design Team, it will no doubt become a true collector automobile.

While it’s easy to get excited about the possibility of winning this matching pair of iconic Boss 302 Mustangs, it is critically important that we keep in mind the main reason the Mustang Dream Giveaway was created.

The Mustang Dream Giveaway’s purpose is to benefit Healing Heroes Network – a national 501(c) (3) charitable organization founded by Dr. Allan M. Spiegel M.D. With the sole mission of providing neurological heath care to our wounded war veterans, this charity is dedicated to assembling a network of providers willing to treat the men and women of the armed forces injured in the line of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan on or after September 11, 2011.

As Dr. Spiegel reminds us: “Through the cooperation of many generous sponsors, the 2011 Mustang Dream Giveaway is your chance to win two spectacular cars and help our wounded troops. None of our efforts to help these deserving veterans would be possible without your generous support. We hope that we can count on your participation.” Dario Orlando, President and CEO of Steeda Autosports adds “We need to be mindful of the more than generous support that our troops provide us. Without them, we would most certainly not have the freedoms we treasure today. Steeda Autosports salutes all of our men and women in service and we support Healing Heroes Network and their noble cause.”
