Ok a friend of mine from Ripon bought a 98 talon with cold air and full exaust with headers and it is 5 speed. My cougar is ATX with cold air and exaust and venom chip. Nothing real fancy in my books. well i for sure i was goin to either win barely or lose by alot. But we lined them up. I got a good start and took him the whole way winning by 3 lengths and the second time i beat him by 4 car lengths.
