Many racing experts would agree that Outlaw 10.5 racing peaked in the mid-2000s once the Outlaw Racing Street Car Association (ORSCA) was created and it organized a 10-race series, but a lack of a rules package that allowed better-funded teams to run roughshod over the rest of the competition drove many racers away, and by the early part of this decade, the class was in dire straits.
One group of Outlaw 10.5 racers, under the tutelage of Jim Halsey and Dave O’Donnell at Cecil County Dragway, decided to reign in the class and set parameters that would equal the playing field. Those efforts eventually resulted in the creation of the Mickey Thompson Outlaw 10.5 National Championship Series by Jerry Morgano, who now serves as director of the series.

For Mickey Thompson Outlaw 10.5 National Championship Series racer Jesse Lambert and his 2004 Ford Mustang, which he purchased last year and has a new J&E Automotive engine, being at the top of the leaderboard has been 30 years in the making.
“This is our first full season in Outlaw 10.5, and our goal was to come out and be competitive while learning the car, the 10.5 tire, and the new engine combination,” said Lambert. “There is still a lot of racing left this season, which will be very tough. We are going to focus on one race at a time and see where everything falls at the end.”
