Curt Rubendall wins Bracket 2 in a Mustang.

Saturday’s portion of Fun Ford Weekend at Maple Grove Raceway was billed as “Fords vs. The World.”

All makes and models were welcome to race The Grove’s quartermile track as fans of Fords, along with Chevys and Mopars, kept track of which cars were still standing as racers made their way through the elimination brackets of three different mixed classes.

There was also special Ford only classes, including Mustang Madness, Tough Truck, VMP Superchargers True Street Shootout and the Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge.

Also, several dozen cars took part in a car show hosted by the Berks County Mustang Car Club and there was a swap meet. The Jersey Thunder Jet Dragster entertained fans.
