he had the 86 repainted and made some runs on it last year. i want to say hes been 8:80's with it now. oh and yes he is from michigan.I read someplace he has restored the red car with the goal of a possible return to the strip. He was one of the pioneers of pro 5.0. It's good to have him in charge at Ford Racing. Maybe he can take some of that Force money and direct it to pro stock!!
