Our very own Evan Smith competed in a special Ford Racing Invitational race that pitted editors from an assortment of magazines and Web sites. He was picked as being the favorite to win due to his vast experience in drag racing. However, the car ran too fast in the first round when Smitty went 13.29 on his 13.30 dial-in. The car was a Shelby GT500 'vert that had over 650 hp and stock Goodyear F1 tires. That makes for a terrible bracket racing vehicle.
