Holley Ford Festival 2021: Dyno Challenge

10 min read

There are many events at the 2021 Holley Ford Festival that will allow anyone to come out and put their Blue Oval-powered ride to the test. That's the whole purpose of the event, to provide a place where you can enjoy the potency of what is under the hood without attracting the attention of the local constabulary. You can put your suspension to the test in the autocross, you can send your tires straight to Valhalla in the burnout competition, and you can bury your foot to the floor on the dragstrip. If you're bold enough, you can do that, plus punish your brakes in the 3S challenge and make a bid for the top prize in the Grand Champion class. But all of those classes verify driving prowess as well as the ability for the nut behind the wheel to cope with the situation. What if you just want to see how the machine does on it's own? That's where the Dyno Challenge comes in. Redine Motorsports, Inc. and Midwest Mobile Dyno are on the property with their mobile dynamometer. Want to see if all 662 horsepower of your 2015 Shelby GT500 are still in the stable? Curious to know if any ponies are left in that 170ci six-cylinder that had lay dormant for the last 25 years or so? The rollers are ready to tell everybody the truth, and the top three horsepower figures for both naturally-aspirated and the power-added class had a reward coming to them, in the form of a Holley product certificate...$400 to first place, $200 to second place, and $100 to third place.

Without further ado, here are your 2021 Ford Fest winners:
