AmericanMuscle Rep Races Past the Competition!

Spring is here and enthusiasts everywhere are bringing their ‘Stangs out of hibernation for racing season! One of AmericanMuscle.com’s own customer service representatives — Brick Spurio — is no exception!

A Mustang Enthusiast since before he could legally drive, Brick started racing the day after he got his license. According to him, he had a, “‘66 Mustang Coupe 289 three-speed. I thought it was the fastest thing ever. I went racing, got my doors blown in and got bit by the speed bug.”

He’s been obsessed with making things go faster since then, and when racing season starts, Brick starts itching to get on the track. The owner of two Mustangs — an ‘87 GT, an ‘03 Mach 1, and always looking for more — Brick’s most recent quest for speed brought him to Reynolds, GA, home of the Silver Dollar Raceway and site of the 7th Annual Bassani Xhaust NMRA Ford Nationals.

Though he wasn’t the driver in Georgia, Brick and his crew raced a 1990 Mustang LX Convertible, 7-UP Special Edition, which is show below.

Driven by Chris Van Gilder, they won the first round against Bob Cook, only to lose by the slimmest of margins to Mike Roush in the second round. The official times are not available yet, but as soon as we have them, they’ll be posted!

Brick and his crew will be in Milan, MI next for the 4th Annual Toyo Tires NMRA Ford Nationals! Look for the guy in the AmericanMuscle.com gear and be sure to say hi!
