“There’s nothing stock about a Stock Car.”, so says fictional racing legend Harry Hogg from 1990’s Days of Thunder.  And while I am a proponent of the “stock sucks” philosophy, when it comes to auto racing my heart lies with actual stock cars (something NASCAR Cup racing gave up decades ago).  There’s just something about watching a factory-bodied Mustang out there beating up on the competition that hits me right in the feels.  And when it comes to Mustang racing it’s tough to beat the excitement of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge series.

The annual SEMA show is always a good time, but for me personally one of the highlights is seeing what our SVTP Vendors have been working on.

You truly never know what you’ll see, but chances are it’ll be something awesome that you want (such as the Batmobile).
