The wind tunnel testing we’ve had with the manufacturers over the past several months has given us the timely and necessary data we needed to come to this confirmation. We believe the new car is going to be a milestone opportunity for our sport, one that our fans will embrace.”

2013 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet’s Weekend Debut

Over the weekend, over 130 race cars competed in the American Drag Racing League’s Summer Nationals VIII.  One of these cars was the 2013 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, making its official racing debut.  Only 50 of them have been built, and the one that was raced during the Summer Nationals was taken straight from a Ford Performance showroom.

“It had never been down the track before,” said Drew Skillman, the man who brought the car to the races. “The furthest it has been was from one side of the building to the other. We were just glad to be able to race it here first since it was built right here in Michigan.”

Drew Skillman elected to drive another vehicle in the races and left the debut run of the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet to another.  The driver deemed worthy of the task was Wes Wells, a National Hot Rod Association Pro Stock Motorcycle racer.
