What looks like a Ford Ranger, but goes like a Ford Taurus-based Police Interceptor?

This truck wasn't only fast, but it looks great, too. Nice work, Material Girls Racing!

Talking to the ladies after the event I found one thing really interersting: The team is kind of breaking up this year as they're all going off to different colleges (although they're going to try and find a way to defend their crown), but none of them are going into STEM studies. This is a passion for them that isn't necessarily vocational, which makes it seem even that much more awesome.

I imagine one of them being a doctor and saying "Yeah, open heart surgery is tough, but have you ever body swapped and built an 85 ranger out of a cop car? Trust me, you're in good hands."

Yeah I know one of them was going into law.

"Oh you're suing because your door flew open on the highway? Well did you try fixing it with a gate latch?"
