MM Mustang dominates the 2001 Camaro-Mustang Challenge series!
Jonathan Bomarito piloted his Maximum Motorsports' prepared Mustang to the 2001 season championship of the Camaro-Mustang Challenge series. He clinched his first title with three 1st place finishes at Sears Point International Raceway on November 3 & 4, 2001. Those three wins capped a season that saw Bomarito dominate the 18-race series with 14 wins, 2 seconds, 1 third and 1 fifth place finish — plus ten pole positions.
Bomarito's championship-winning 1992 Mustang was equipped with Maximum Motorsports' suspension components, Toyo tires, and Baer Racing brakes. California Automotive & Tire and Ted's Collision Center, both in Salinas, California, also provided sponsorship.
Incredibly, 19 year old Jonathan Bomarito won the championship in his first year of the CMC series. His previous racing experience includes several years in karts, four starts in the Grand Am Cup and one appearance in the Barber Formula Dodge Championship.
Mustang and Camaro enthusiasts created the CMC series to promote competitive, affordable, racing between Mustangs and Camaros. Wheels must be 16" by 8", and the "nearly stock" engines are limited to 230 horsepower and 300 ft-lb of torque. The Camaro-Mustang Challenge is sanctioned by the two California chapters of NASA (National Auto Sport Association, www.nasaproracing.com, or see www.camaromustangchallenge.com).
