Food Lion Autofair

CONCORD, N.C. (Aug. 3, 2006) - The ground will shake and the sound
of thunder will be in the air when the 900-horsepower Shadrach Mustang makes its East Coast debut during the Sept. 14-17 Food Lion AutoFair at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

The Shadrach coupe, a twin-turbocharged tire-burner built on the
2006 Ford Mustang chassis, kicks off a limited run of Signature Editions
commemorating Super Stock drag racing legends Hubert Platt and Randy Payne.

Pure Power Motorsports, of Powder Springs, Ga., begins by purchasing
a 2006 Mustang GT and stripping it to the point that only the Vista Blue
factory paint remains. The stock 4.6-liter block is transformed into a
900-horsepower monster with a crate of hot rod parts, including a
sophisticated fuel injection system that allows a smooth idle and emissions
that fall within federal guidelines. Two water-to-air turbochargers and
intercooler radiators pump cool air into the aluminum V-8 through a vintage
eight-stack system-the type of flashy intake favored by drag racers in the
1960s and '70s. A six-speed racing transmission means the driver can always
find a gear for acceleration, whether on the road or dragstrip. No boulevard cruiser, the Shadrach Mustang's suspension and chassis components were chosen for serious high-speed use. The beefy high-tech brake rotors are barely hidden behind the 20-inch forged aluminum competition wheels and low-profile, ultra-performance tires.

The interior features a six-point roll cage, leather-wrapped Recaro
front seats, matching rears, five-point harnesses and a carbon-fiber dash.
There is also a heads-up display system that projects vital information such
as speed, revolutions per minute and turbo boost pressure on the windshield.
PPM's styling package turns a "cute commuter" Mustang into a dragstrip icon, with every part functional and unique to the Shadrach. The front bumper cover, which incorporates an aerodynamic carbon-fiber air splitter and billet grille, gives the Shadrach the face of a predator. Its raised hood is an organic sculpture that sprouts twin air inlet scoops in front, then presents the turbo engine's polished aluminum intake like a Best of Show trophy. Side skirts molded in carbon-fiber hide all but the outlets of the side exhaust pipes. An adjustable wing and lower air diffuser maintain clean airflow as the Shadrach carves its way through the atmosphere.

Even the factory Ford paint receives special attention-layers of pearl protected by many coats of clear-and a unique Shadrach wings/flames
logo on the hood. The first 70 Shadrachs will be Vista Blue Signature
Editions with "The Going Thing" stripes, a reference to Platt and Payne, the
charismatic duo who campaigned Ford muscle cars at dragstrips all across
America in the late 1960s under that marketing slogan. Hubert Platt, known early in his career for a series of "Georgia Shaker" race cars, was picked by Ford's Lee Iacocca to head the company's 1968-'70 Eastern drag racing team. During that time he drove a 428 Cobra Jet Mustang to an NHRA SS/IA record of 12.41 seconds at 112.92 mph and won the 1969 Winter Championships and AHRA U.S. Open Top Stock Eliminator class.

Teammate Randy Payne piloted his Torino Cobra to victory so many times that no one ever challenged the validity of his nickname, "Mr. Big Stuff." Payne won every event in his class while racing for Ford, including the first sanctioned drag race held in Canada. When he won all three nights in Super Stock in Daytona Beach, Fla., by elimination he wound up running the finals against himself, a feat that has never recurred. "This Shadrach Mustang combines the best of both worlds," said H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway. "It's what I call 'modern nostalgia.' It's built on a current chassis, but it has all the styling of a '60s drag car. I also like that it honors two drivers who helped Ford maintain its Total Performance image during that decade."

Other attractions scheduled for the Sept. 14-17 Food Lion AutoFair
include a display of vintage wood-bodied wagons, the Ultimate Surfmobile
from Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage," a Ford Model-A pickup covered
with a history of cartoons and 40th Anniversary gatherings of two important
American muscle cars that have recently been revived: the Dodge Charger and the Shelby GT-500 Mustang. Hundreds of examples of vintage farm machinery, courtesy of the Stumptown Tractor Club, will fill the show lot next to the infield Pavilion.

Food Lion AutoFair hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday through
Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults.
Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Parking
for the event is $5. For information, contact the speedway events department
at (704) 455-3205 or visit www.lowesmotorspeedway.com.

The fall automotive extravaganza will feature an incredible collection of one of the most popular vehicles of the 1950s, The Woodie. Following World War II, this multi-functional wagon became a popular buy for families across the country, particularly among the surfing crowd. Come join us as we turn back the clock Kowabunga style with this 'must see' Woodie exhibit plus live beach music on Sunday!

Other feature attractions include:

Monster Garage 'Ultimate Surfmobile':

In addition to the classic Woodies display, come see 'The Ultimate Surfmobile,' a super-sized Woodie wagon created by the minds of the Discovery Channel series "Monster Garage." This classic 1950 Ford required the efforts of six builders due to its rusted body and partially decaying frame.

The Toon Truck:

Designed by New Jersey art teacher Bob Luczun, this classic 1928 Ford Model A features over 30,000 of the 20th century's greatest animated characters. Representing over 2,000 hours of painstaking airbrush work, this exhibit is a "must see" for the kid in everyone!

Chargin' it up!

Come join us as Food Lion AutoFair celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Dodge Charger. This display will feature a breath-taking collection of cars from one of the greatest chapters in the long illustrious history of American Muscle!

Terrific Tractors!

The Stumptown Tractor Club pulls into the Food Lion AutoFair for its 2nd Annual show. Be part of the world's largest automotive extravaganza and register your antique tractor for the show.

More featured cars are in the works! Check out the Food Lion AutoFair events page for other attractions and further information.

Food Lion AutoFair will also include a gigantic flea market, car corral, manufacturers' midway, car clubs and collector car auction.

I'm debating on how to do the Fall sign up because we only had 30 cars out of 40 show up for the Spring event due to rain and that's not acceptable.

MMMMM. A newly appointed "Big Daddy" on the horizon it seems! Will the ceremonial "passing of the torch" be conducted at this Fall's AutoFair? Stay tuned. News at 11.

Let's not forget the "High Winds & HAIL" threat looming over that event 2 DAYS prior! That's EXACTLY why this 31st car wasn't there!
