James and Yvonne Casity is one family that has experienced their fair share of tough times, having closed a family Plumbing business of 7 years and now currently seeking employment.

It was day one of the 2011 SEMA Show in Vegas that while on my way to the Ford Motor Company exhibit that something very cool caught my attention and drew me in. I saw the blue glowing lights in the distance from the Ford booth but it was the Saleen Speedlab booth that this monster was at. Before me was a 2011 Mustang GT that had gone thru an extensive transformation into an S302R American Iron Series race car. I needed to know more, and thats when I met Kevin from Performance Autosport, Inc. who’s Richmond, VA.
