Larry Larsson, a marine transportation specialist with Military Sealift Command Pacific’s operations department, took 1st Place honors in the Modern Ponies, Camaros, Challenger and Mustangs category at the 8th annual Coronado Speed Fest Car Show held Sept. 21-22 at Naval Base North Island, Calif. Larsson's 2008 Ford Mustang GT, was one of 24 awardees from more than 350 cars that participated. Larsson was presented with a plaque and the opportunity to drive his car around the Speed Fest race track.  "I participate in a lot of car shows," said Larsson,  "This show was extra special because It was so cool to be on the same track that professional race cars were racing on earlier. What a rush!"
