POMPANO BEACH, FL – Steeda Autosports, the world’s largest aftermarket manufacturer of Ford performance equipment, in the debut of its 2017 Steeda Q500R Mustang resulted in a conclusive victory against all comers at the 2017 inaugural SCCA Majors in Homestead, Florida this weekend. Competing in the highly contested Sports Car Club of America Touring 1 Class where modified production based sports cars slug it out in a winner take all format – the 2017 Steeda Q500R became the first S550 based Mustang to take top honors on the podium with a dominate victory against other highly modified Corvettes, BMWs, Vipers and other high-priced sports cars.

Background – Speed Matters® is more than just a slogan at Steeda – from ISO 9001:2008 Certified engineering and manufacturing to the creation of limited edition Serialized Steeda Performance Vehicles to competing at grass roots as well as major racing events around the country. Our strategic intent is to provide ultimate performance parts and accessories for Ford enthusiasts worldwide – on & off the track.

Details – The 2017 Steeda Q500R is a rolling test bed equipped with virtually all of the Steeda’s designed, engineered, and manufactured parts that retail customers can purchase for their own 2015 – 2017 Mustang. In its very first outing of the season, the Steeda Q500R piloted by Steeda Vice President of Operations Glen Vitale proved to be unbeatable. The race was a test of extreme conditions – from dry to extremely wet conditions, from high speed to twisting corners. At the end of the race, the nearest competitor, a BMW, was over ten seconds behind – essentially eliminated from contention early in the race.

“This is a tremendous victory for Team Steeda” said Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports. “We essentially took out a brand new race car that is based on our Steeda Q500 Enforcer Mustang series of performance vehicles, added other optional Steeda manufactured components, roll bar, racing tires, and Wilwood 6 piston front brake kit and proved that we could beat all comers in this highly competitive race series – it wasn’t even close! The Steeda Q500R is our developmental car we use to test the components we design, engineer, and manufacture under extreme racing conditions – so our retail customer can rest assure that our parts are indeed race proven and track-tested.”

Great job guys, way to go. This kind of victory calls for a "STEEDA SITE WIDE 40% OFF SALE"!!!! Man, I should be in marketing, I have so many ridiculously awesome ideas.

I was wondering the same thing, but I think SCCA rules will not allow anything but the stock bumper. I'm not sure though.

The reason for that is the rules will not allow us to use it.

There are rules for that just like there are rules for minimum ride height , wheel size and even how far out the splitter can extend.

We would love to use it but we are limited
