Not sure. I sent someone a friendly e-mail asking what they look for when selecting cover cars, and was told they only have a few 5th gens a year to allow all gens to grace the cover. They're more about performance, even saying that custom lighting it almost a deterrent for them. It makes sense having "Performers" in their mag's name.
They were my top choice being that they did cover my ride, but I may have to look elsewhere. =)
I hope they're at the fest and bring Bad Penny too.
