MUSTANG vs The World

 

Round 8

 

.

 

Super Gas 9.900

 

.

 

MOJO'S DIXIE DEVIL GET'S IT DONE

 

.

 

The 8th and final season race of Mustang vs The World got under way last night with 10 racers primed and ready for racing.  The modified format was ran once again, taking the top 6 racers into the final.  With the dial turned up to the fastest index this season to 9.900, the drivers would have to be on point all night if they would hope to make it thru to the finals.

.

The prelims would continue to bring the same level of close, clean racing that has become expected in FODRL events.  In Lobby 1, HobbesLaw from the VooDoo camp would return and make a big impact in the Ford Fairlane as he would sweep the prelims and advance to the finals.  Hektic would have trouble with his BMW and find the exit early in both rounds.  Mojo and WooZ can always be counted on for their ability to turn a "sure thing" into a white-knuckle, drama filled, fender to fender, (sometimes fender into door) race for survival.  This prelim would be no exception, as Mojo and BigBen would go out on a double elimination with a 9.944 in heat 3 of Rnd 1, thus tightening up the lobby while giving Hobbes some breathing room.  Mojo would come in 2nd behind Hobbes to advance to the final.  WooZ and BigBen would strkie next, both earning 5 points after Rnd 2 creating a tie for the final spot to advance.  BigBen ran strong all night in his Viper, but WooZ laid down a 9.900 pass to take the tie breaker and advance.  In Lobby 2, mouse would go out first then Hot with a breakout followed by cipher.  Silent would fend off Jet to take the first round points.  Round 2 would see mouse exit early.  Silent and cipher would fall victim to a double elimination with a 9.960 leaving Hot and Jet to battle for the top spot.  Hot would win the round.  Points leader Jet would look to increase his lead as he would take his 40 coupe to the final.  Silent would look to dethrone Jet and claim 1st for himself as he would follow the leader into the finals.  HotLz would continue to build momentum late in the season as he would take the final spot in the Super Gas final.  

.

The final would have a split field of 3 FOMA and 3 FOIMA.  The points led currently held by Jet would remain intact but the question would be how tight would the spread be after the final.  Hobbes would come into the event looking to be the spoiler, and at the end of Rnd 1 he would be locked onto that goal like a laser as he would take another round win.  Mojo, who had been chasing after Hobbes all night would come in 2nd as the final heat was a 9.910 to 9.900.  WooZ and Jet would claim the 3rd and 4th spots, with Hot and Silent finding the early exits in the round.  The first breakouts of the final would hit in heat 1, rnd 2, as Mojo, Hobbes, and WooZ would dip into the 9.8s, but Hobbes would post the fastest breakout going out and claiming 7 pts.  Jet would exit next claiming 5 pts along with Silent.  WooZ would create more tension as he would take 7 pts, locking horns with Hobbes.  Mojo could add to the tension if he could get past Hot and his viper.  Hot would continue his late season rally but come up short to the Dixie Devil, creating a 3 way tie for 2nd.  The tie breaker would go Hot's way as he would take 2nd, with WooZ grabbing 3rd, and Hobbes 4th.  

.

 

We will meet next weekend July 19th, @ 10 pm est for Part 1 of the Mustang vs The World Championship, 10.6 Renegade Street.
