Event: Mustang Week 2015, Day 3

In what has become a popular tradition, Vaughn Gittin Jr. brought his Ready To Rock rig out to Mustang week to show of his line of Mustang RTRs and give the fans a drifting demonstration. He got slideways in the RTR-X and his prototype 2015 Mustang RTR comp car to the delight of fans at the speedway. And, as we previously mentioned, he was kind enough to give Caleb Cook a couple of rides as well. Loyal SVTP member Mike Lund was even lucky enough to ride in the passenger seat with Vaughn, which is an experience he won’t soon forget.

The Mustang Week Meet ’N Greet is the place to see and be seen as the week gets up to speed.
