The Ford Booth draws the largest crowds at The SEMA Show and its not hard when cool cars like the new Twin-Turbo Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Concept makes its SEMA Debut. The Ford booth had something for everyone too, there were hotrods, modern muscle cars and gigantic offroad ready trucks showing off the latest in design and performance.

I had the opportunity to cover the 2011 Global RallyCross event. While I was there, I paid a visit to the Ford Rally Team base-camp where some of the world’s best drivers were present: Tanner Foust and WRC Legend Marcus Gronholm.
