Mustang Maddness is a “Open Comp Style” class that is designed for all Ford Powered Mustangs that run slower than 8.50 seconds in the 1/4 mile. The “Mustang Maddness” class will be run on an Open Comp format with a 1-tenth (1/10th) breakout. What this means is, you get 3 rounds of qualifying. You take 1/10th off your quickest time and that is your automatic dial-in for eliminations. This time will be yours throughout eliminations (it does not change). The best reaction time is the #1 qualifier, you will then be put on a Sportsman ladder for eliminations. There is basically no rules in this class, so come out and have some fun.
