Place: 2nd
Being completely overwhelmed by the sight of this old-Detroit iron sliding around the racetrack at last year's THROWDOWN event, we welcomed the '67 F-100 back for more physics-defying artistry this year. Behind the wheel, Scott Call made the steel loaf of bread look more like a Ferrari than a 45-year-old pickup. Still powered by the cast-iron big-block, Scott did leave some performance out on the track, and we keep hoping to pop the hood and find a new Coyote-based 5.0L between the 'rails. Flat-spotting a few tires in the stop box, Steve wasn't really stoked to head back onto the track for the road course, but like always, the old Blue Oval handled it's business with scalpel like precision. Finishing Second in the slalom and Second in the road course, Scott and the F-100 are a dynamic duo of driver and machine.
