Congrats on the open PAX win! Glad to hear you had a great day. There was an EcoBoost Mustang at Blytheville. It was an auto though but it did get out of the hole well even on the stock tires. I am surprised that it was that close to the M3. M3 also on Stones? The cool temps probably didn't allow the M3 to use power as effectively and surface grip/course tightness would also play into that possibly.
