Steeda Wins the 2011 CMC2 National Championship

The Camaro-Mustang Challenge Racing 2 Series (CMC2) is the forum where newer model V-8 powered Mustangs and Camaros come together and race in a highly competitive series.  With the race cars so evenly matched, the racing is as close, exciting, and challenging as it gets.  For the 2011 season, the CMC2 National Champion is Anders Sjoblom – and he won the national championship driving a completely Street Legal Steeda Mustang!

Anders Sjoblom is your typical motorsports enthusiast, he loves fast cars, likes to push the envelope in everything he does, and racing his Steeda Mustang allows him to have the competitive experiences that makes all his hard work worth while.  While many race teams are BIG $$$ operations that are heavily financed and have huge support behind them, Anders takes a better approach to his racing efforts and uses a completely street legal Steeda Mustang as his car of choice to dominate on the race track.  Being an automotive enthusiast with a strong desire to have fun and to test his driving skills on the racetrack, Anders used his analytical insight to rely on Steeda Autosports for his performance parts and modifications – and the Steeda Q Series was his Mustang of choice.

When you look at his record this season, you have to be impressed with his many successes.  With a total of 17 races, Anders was able to finish on the podium a total of 16 times – with a record 8 1st place finishes, 4 2nd place finishes – a truly impressive accomplishment on it’s own, and when you take into consideration that this is his second consecutive National Championship, it is even more amazing!

To underscore the street-ability nature of his race car, following his championship clinching victory at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Anders Steeda Mustang was loaded onto a transport trailer with another race car for the several hundred mile journey back to his home.   After only a few miles on the road, the transport trailer encountered a structural problem that required them to unload one of the cars so as to enable them to safely limp the trailer back home.   Needless to say, Anders off-loaded his Steeda Mustang and then proceeded to drive it like he was out for a leisurely Sunday cruise.   Imagine the looks he received from the many onlookers when they saw a street-legal, championship winning, yellow Steeda Mustang with a full roll-cage and race graphics driving on the interstate!

Anders Sjoblom’s fantastic accomplishments underscore the overall success that Steeda Autosports has realized since our inception.   In our 23 years of uninterrupted operation and racing, Steeda equipped cars have won more races, more championships, and set more records than ALL of our competitors combined.  More than Roush, Shelby, and Saleen combined.

2011 Steeda Stampede & Fun Ford Weekend

The 2011 Steeda Stampede, an annual event at Steeda World Headquarters in Pompano Beach Florida, was once again another tremendous success as the Steeda fans and faithful packed the Steeda Campus for a morning of car shows, tech discussions, dyno runs, and much-much more. With over $10,000 in door prizes that were donated by Steeda as well as some of our other event sponsors, there was something for everyone.  Of course “Frank’s Garage” sale had a slew of performance and take-off part bargains for everyone.

The grounds of Pompano campus were loaded with many great Steeda and Ford performance vehicles, including many of the historic Steeda vehicles built over the years and raced on the track. In addition, the entire Steeda campus was packed with customer rides – all on display for everyone to check out and comment on.

With hundreds of cars on display this year – the annual Steeda Stampede is indeed one of those cool Saturday morning events that you should always plan on attending.  Following the events at the Steeda campus, everyone embarked on a Stampede to the Fun Ford Weekend event at the Palm Beach International Raceway where there was non-stop action – from car display to racing.   While the Stampede for this year is over, rest assured that we will have more – with two Steeda Stampedes being scheduled for next year…one at our World Headquarters in Pompano Beach Florida and the other at our Valdosta, Georga facility.
