Ford Racing Supercharged 2011 Mustang GT

Next weekend Ford Racing will attempt to set a new record with a supercharged 2011 Mustang GT at Bristol Motor Speedway’s half-mile speed trials. The event is part of Bristol Motor Speedway’s 50th anniversary celebration that involves several motorsports champions from a  wide range of disciplines attempting to set class half-mile closed-course records. Ford Racing plans to enter the street legal car category, with NASCAR drivers David Ragan and Marcos Ambrose driving the FRPP project Mustang complete with a Ford Racing 624 horsepower supercharger system, FR3 handling pack and Ford Racing / Brembo big brake kit.

“The World’s Fastest Half-Mile issued a challenge to the fastest of the fast,” said BMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Jerry Caldwell.  “For the first time in years, fans will witness an all-out attack for speed.  This challenge ignites new creativity in the racing world to stretch speed boundaries in the most intense, close-quarters setting in motorsports.”

Competitors will have one hour, from approximately 5 until 6 p.m., to make record runs following the Scotts EZ Seed 300.  The “World’s Fastest Half-Mile Speed Trials” is a bonus event for the Nationwide Series race ticketholders.
