True Street competitor Randy Seward, who staked his claim as drag racing’s Ironman a year ago when he drove his 8-second Ford Mustang from his home in New Mexico to the NMRA season opener in Bradenton, Fla., (an epic 4,000 mile round-trip) has hit the road once again for the Sunshine State with his trusty twin-turbo steed. This time, however, the trip will be a much shorter one, given his new departure point in Tennessee, which puts the trip to Bradenton at around 12 hours each way (around 800 miles). Seward, along his girlfriend, Donna, who is following him down to Florida in another vehicle, have been providing us with photos and updates on their adventure thus far, and both Dragzine and it’s sister site, StangTV, will be bringing you on-track updates from the NMRA opener next weekend. Below are some updates and photos with commentary from Donna on this week’s adventure:
10:53 a.m.: Almost to Atlanta. Still snowing and just above freezing with 20-25 mph winds.
In testing at Orlando Speedworld, Randy made some adjustments and ran a best of 9.06 with the boost dialed back as he got tuned up for the weekend ahead at Bradenton. In the morning, it’s off to the track!
