Ford fans attending the Mac Tools Nationals as well as Blue Oval enthusiasts all over the country were thrilled to hear that Bob Glidden drove Jim Cunningham’s Pro Stock Mustang at Indy and has also agreed to help out with his engine program.
But few were more excited than Erica Enders, the driver of Cunningham’s other Ford factory hot rod entry. “I’m actually star struck,” said Enders. “It’s an honor to work with Bob and I love talking with him. He’s forgotten more about Pro Stock than I’ll ever know, and I am positive that he will really help our in-house engine development.”
Glidden, who hasn’t raced since the 2003 NHRA Finals, failed to make the field, but is hopeful that he can help the team will find more horsepower and has tentative plans to drive Cunningham’s Mustang at additional NHRA national events.
