Driver and Machine in Building Y’s Ford Nationals Select Display all Weekend

Sam Auxier, Jr. has been a guest at Carlisle in years past, but never before like this. One of drag racing’s top drivers decades ago is coming back in 2017 to not only meet fans, but showcase his famed 1969 Mustang. This isn’t just any average ’69 racer. It started as a body in white and was provided to Sam by Ford Motor Company and was race prepared at R&M performance in Cambridge, Maryland by Sam and Chick DeNino. Under the hood, this beast hosts a 427 Tunnel Port engine, backed by a Top Loader 4-speed transmission. On the track, it as well as Sam competed in the Ultra/Stock class of the NASCAR drag racing circuit and later the NAAR. Sam won the NAAR Spring Nationals with this car, considered an early version of a Pro/Stock racer. Come to Carlisle and see a car that’s known as much for its beautiful paint, exceptional engineering and wild, wheel standing starts as it is its success on the track.
