Craig Jackson and his team wanted to give me, and one of our brand-new, 2017 Ford Mustang RTRs unrestricted access to get crazy…—Vaughn Gittin Jr.
“When the very fun crew at Pennzoil called me to tell me that Craig Jackson and his team wanted to give me, and one of our brand-new, 2017 Ford Mustang RTRs unrestricted access to get crazy at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Site in Scottsdale, it did not take much of an arm twisting for me to say yes,” Vaughn explained.
Obviously Vaughn is always happy to turn a tire, but with such a huge canvas to work with he laid down a huge piece of ‘performance art’ painted with 360,000 miles worth of Nitto Tire rubber. As you can see in the video, his Pennzoil Synthetics-backed, 450-horsepwer Mustang RTR was more than up to the task, and it was able to move around some pretty special obstacles.

If you make it out to the auction and you see tire tracks on the ground, now you know there’s a pretty cool reason for them to be there.
