Last week, we saw the baddest Mustangs in the country throw down on the King of the Street dyno at Holley HQ in Bowling Green, KY. The results? Over 7000 horsepower measured from these 8-Second cars; and we’ve got video to prove it!

Everyone loves a good car show. We lay out the best Mustang events around the country as well as highlight what events we are hosting. Featured are our annual events like Mustang Mayhem and the AmericanMuscle Car Show--the largest Mustang only car show in the world!
The AmericanMuscle team was in full effect last Wednesday night in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, along with our friends at 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords! It was the night before the highly anticipated King of the Street competition at Beech Bend Park in Bowling Green, KY. What better way to kick off the fun than a night out with the whole crew?
We gathered at the Whiskey Kitchen on 12th Avenue in Nashville to catch up and talk about the events to follow. Mike Johnson, Steven Turner, KJ Jones and Greg Clark from the 5.0 Magazine crew were all excited to get a head start on things when we landed. It’s always a pleasure to hang out with our boys from Tampa and LA, and tonight was going to be fun!
If you’re a die-hard Mustang performance enthusiast, you’ve probably heard of 5.0 Magazine’s King of the Street competition. As this years sponsor, AmericanMuscle.com is headed to Bowling Green, KY to get our hands dirty and bring the action back to our viewers!
Follow our Facebook updates for up to date information and pics from the event!
Does your Mustang put down over 800 horsepower to the wheels? Can it run 9′s on drag radials and stop at the drive-thru for dinner on the way home? AmericanMuscle and 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords Magazine have teamed up to find the fastest and baddest TRULY streetable Mustangs in the world! Are you ready to throw down?
Our two sponsored NMRA drivers, Tim Matherly and Bart Tobener, will both be on hand for the competition, and AM will be videoing their qualifying runs. We’ll be hanging out during the day on Saturday, walking the vendor midway, and cheering on our own Karen Baum and Brick Spurio as they compete in the local true street classes.
“Bad Bart” Tobener has been drag racing since 1998, and is competing this season in the EFI Renegade class. The competition is incredibly tough, but after his amazing qualifying run earlier this year at Bradenton, Bart is confident that he’s going to be a points front-runner in his class all through the season.
Tim Matherly is the reigning 2009 NMRA Real Street Champion, having won the NMRA Real Street class at four different events in 2009. In June of ‘09, he set the then-top speed Real Street record of 146.050 at Atco in his MVPerformance Mustang. This year, Tim returns with a 2010 Mustang that is really race-styled and ready to challenge his prior record.
Here’s the schedule for Atco (courtesy of NMRA):
