WHAT: Hurst Performance, a company responsible for some of the most iconic pace cars in history, and Woodhouse Auto Family of Blair, Nebraska, have once again partnered with Victory Junction. This time, the highly-collectible, 2010 BFGoodrich/Hurst Mustang convertible is set to pace the upcoming “Run to Victory Half Marathon and Five Mile Run/Walk” race presented by Wal-Mart. The race will benefit Victory Junction, a year-round camping facility that serves children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses.
The Run to Victory Half Marathon and Five Mile Run/Walk will be one of the pace car’s last stops, as it makes its way to the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. The car will be auctioned on January 23, with proceeds benefitting the newest Victory Junction Camp in Kansas City.
