Ford EcoBoost Challenge, Raleigh NC

Saturday May 16th was the Ford EcoBoost Challenge in Raleigh NC, and it was a blast!  Thanks to Ford for holding these events and giving us normal folks a chance to get behind the wheel of their various cars and trucks. Today I drove a Ford Edge, a Focus ST, and the new 4 cylinder Mustang with 310 horsepower. More on that in the next few days, before heading to bed here's a few photos below.

Give everyone a badge so they don't drive the Mustangs 100 times!

Have enough Mustangs to go around...

Provide some shady spots, trucks, and cars...

Feature the new 2015 Mustang a lot...

Have professionals on hand to describe cars and answer questions...

Encourage folks to put their lead foot down!
