Do you ever wonder where the name of one of the I-5 QMC's premier events originated?
In 2002, member and former President Dan Press suggested that the I-5 QMC needed to have an event on the schedule that would identify the club to the QMA community. Having attended such events as the Scotty Key in Valejo, the Winternationals in Primm, and other historic events, Dan saw the potential for the I-5 club to develop itself with a stand alone event.
The members of the club agreed, and with help from a few companies over the years, the event quickly became a must attend event. The drivers would vie for one of the prestigious custom embroidered leather jackets awarded to each class winner. In addition, in the early years, U.S. Savings Bonds were distributed to the top finishers, and the Mudslinger Shootout was born. Marquee Lopez is credited for coming up with the event name, and it continues to be a weekend that many Region 9 teams put on their race schedule. It has also been attended by teams from as far away as Montana!
Visit the Results tab on the web site front page to see who the past winners of the event are, and make plans to be part of this great event, that for 2012, will be starting it's second decade of inviting everyone to the I-5 QMC for a shootout..................................
