Shotgun Ride in NASCAR-powered Ford Mustang

Back in May, we told you about the guys over at the Mustang Shop in Auburn, Washington, and their NASCAR-powered 2008 Ford Mustang. You may not remember the facts, but you must recall the videos because that pony had a soundtrack of its own.

However, we barely had one minute and a half of footage back then and we were desperately hoping for something new to show up. Our wish came true this month, when the Mustang Shop posted a video with the NASCAR-powered beast being hammered at the Pacific Raceways in Kent.

As a reminder, the 358 cubic inch V8 mill fitted under the hood comes from one of Mark Martin’s Winston Cup racers, while the driveshaft and shifter were purchased from Roush/Yates. The musclecar also gained road racing intake, cam and carburators, as well as a Whiteline suspension. Without further ado, scroll below for almost 12 minutes of NASCAR V8 heavy metal. Remember to pump up that volume before hitting the play button.
