Single Turbo Mustang (PRO-MOD) Crash & Burn
Steve Grebeck crashing on the big end, Bad News. On Sunday March 3rd, in the first round of Pro 5.0 eliminations at the Spring Break Shootout, Steve Grebeck lost control of his record-setting 6-second Mustang and crashed at the top end of the track. The accident was one of the most violent we've seen and the results were fatal. In one shocking moment a racer, a friend, a car builder and most of all a human being, was lost. There are many icons in our sport that come to mind when reminiscing the historical moments in late-model Mustang racing. When Steve & his crew arrived in Maple Grove for the NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals, they pacified all those in disbelief as they hammered out an astounding 6.77 at over 208 mph!!!. The rulemakers were headed for many a sleepless night. Grebeck's amazing creation went on to make runs of 6.65 and 6.67 at mind-boggling speeds that exceeded 213 mph to once again make Mustang racing history. Up to this point, we have outlined the deep history that Grebeck had in the roots of 5.0 Mustang racing. These are but a handful of the history-making cars and driving feats that he was responsible for. From what we know, Grebeck was an individual who possessed the confidence, knowledge and ingenuity that made all of his creations one of a kind. Racing was his life. He was capable of building, designing or servicing any part of a car. It didn't matter if it was tin work, setting up the rear end, changing the tranny gears, popping a new piston in, welding up the chassis or a manifold, he did it all with style. At 36, Grebeck was just becoming nationally recognized for his talents, as a fabricator, as a racer, as a mechanic, as someone who never said no to his friends, when fate cut his life short. Steve Grebeck died as he lived, doing what he loved, doing what he felt compelled to do, and doing it all under his own terms. When you are that good, you can only do it that way. We will all miss Steve Grebeck. We will miss his talent, his friendship, his smile, and his youthful exuberance with which he pursued everything in life.
