The second run at the 3 mile we broke the existing record with a speed of 167.539 mph. We went to impound for inspection and made our backup run Tuesday morning first thing which resulted in a 171.123 mph run with an average speed of 169.331 mph. We drained the event diesel and added B-20 Bio Diesel and returned to the course to run 173.180 mph with a maximum speed of 182.143 mph. Two records in Four Passes!
After a bet with Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. we found out that the Super Duty Land Speed Truck could drift with the best of them and destroyed a new set of Daytona Goodyear Tires in 19 seconds. Looking forward to drifting the Super Duty with Vaughn’s Mustang some day. Video available at: www.youtube.com/hajekmotorsports
We loaned Long Time friend Don “The Snake” Prudhomme the 1967 Shelby Super Snake Dragster for use in the up coming Snake and Mongoose Movie. Look for it in a theater near you!!
