  • So I did a thing...

    October 24, 2019 at Willow Springs Raceway, Streets of Willow track.

    2020 ROUSH Mustang Competition Package.
    775 horsepower.
    A $112,000 vehicle.

    They didn't have to tell me twice to be careful with it!

    This was the prototype they unveiled at SEMA today.

        And I now have a contact with ROUSH Performance who said they would be more than happy to arrange for a group tour of their facility if S2KCA Club members would like to do that in September while we are in town for S2KDays.

            It was! Thanks!

            The article I wrote is supposed to go live today. We were under press embargo and I wasn't allowed to discuss the car until now.

            Second favorite line I had the great fortune to be able to write: "The raw power is unmistakable, but the control is the part that is most amazing. This is not the people-mowing Mustang of Saturday morning car show lore."

              Ouch! As complimentary as this is to the Roush, I'm surprised you were allowed to side swipe the Mustang base with such candid humor.
              None the less, It seems you're turning into quite the celebrity, congrats! What's next... Leno??

                Well, it hasn't been published yet, so who knows? They might opt to pull that line out anyway. Doubt it though. Pretty much every online automotive publication is given some latitude in the area of some lighthearted ribbing about drivers with more dollars than sense. It's a fluff piece and I have no delusions of being some reviewer extraordinaire.

                Thanks for the compliments. Really though, I'm just a car gal doing car stuff. I'm very fortunate to have been given an opportunity.

                It really was a most awesome day though. And I'm pretty damned thankful to have been allowed to play with Mr. Roush's newest toy. Four laps behind the wheel was nowhere near enough, but I'm pleased as punch to have gotten even that!

                And then I found myself really low on gas in my daily right next to the danged fires in Santa Clarita which apparently started only minutes before I got there. My plan as I left the track was to gas up in Santa Clarita. Didn't expect it to be on fire. Tough to gas up when the electricity is shut down. Eventful day.

                  It looks like that is in southern California and that is a long ways from northern Michigan which is where S2KDays 2020 is being held.

                    ROUSH Performance is located outside of Detroit, Michigan. That isn't considered northern Michigan, but it's definitely not California.

                      My bad. I saw Willow Springs Raceway and when I checked to see where that is, that is where I saw SoCal. I missed the part about the ROUSH Performance facility which is in Plymouth, MI, about 240 miles from Shanty Creek, but a stop there certainly could be worked into the trip coming to or going from our event, especially for those who live south and/or east of Michigan.
