A quick recap of this yearís Peach State Musclecar Challenge:
Location: Atlanta Motor Speedway
Dates: June 27-29, 2014

Though the weather brought some slight on and off rain, the Peach State Musclecar Challenge was a huge success. As many know from the official event thread, this yearís event was not only itís own event, but also stood as a substitute for this yearís Run Through The Hills event in Pigeon Forge, TN. After a scheduling conflict with the host location left American Streetcar Series out of a venue, they were forced to cancel the Run Through the Hills event for 2014. No worries though folks; the event is scheduled to resume next year. We look forward to having both events back on the calendar for 2015.

This yearís event was held in the Atlanta Motor Speedway parking lot. The lot was a huge area allowing for a wide open yet technical course. There was not an overwhelming amount of participant at this yearís Peach State MuscleCar Challenge, allowing for endless runs and tons of seat time. I have a feeling this may change come next year.

Itís not all about 1st place with ASCS; awards are given for several different reasons. There were some humorous awards, some encouraging awards and then the big award for a spot on this yearís Goodguys Autocross Shootout. Below are some of the winners of the Peach State Musclecar Challenge. We want to thank ASCS and Bill Howell for sharing the photos with everyone on Facebook. Included are some of the names of the winners (there are a couple without names- if you know them please feel free to add them in the comment section below.)

Tyler Powell- Winner of GG Scottsdale Autocross Shootout

Erich Baumgartner- Peach State Musclecar Challenge Champion

Brian Clark- Runner Up

Erich Baumgartner- Fastest Ford

Deb McGilton- Quick Chicks

Brian Davis- Fastest Lap 1981 & Newer

Fastest Over 50 Award

Eric Wracker- Underdog Award

We want to congratulate all these award recipients along with the rest of the participants at the Peach State MuscleCar Challenge. We also want to acknowledge Tyler Powell on his win for a spot on the Goodguys Autocross Shootout. This opportunity is not one that many get to participate in. We hope to see him make the journey to Scottsdale and will be looking for him and his Corvette November 14-16, 2014.


Here are also a couple videos from the event we found on YouTube that were posted by Skid4fun. We thought the one in the rain looked pretty awesome.
