Ford Racing Cobra Jet Shootout

This past weekend Milan Dragway in Milan, MI hosted the first annual Ford Racing Cobra Jet Showdown presented alongside the NMCA Muscle Car Nationals. The event featured late model Cobra Jets separated into two classes – one for cars using the 2.3-liter supercharger or 428ci naturally aspirated engine and one for cars using the 4.0-liter supercharger.

The racing wasn’t just for show, though, with a $2,400 purse up for grabs in each class and an additional $2,000 going to the overall winner. It was Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords editor Evan Smith who beat out the competition in the 2.3-liter supercharged class, and Blaine Ramey raced his Cobra Jet to victory in the 4.0-liter supercharged class. The two went heads-up, with a handicap start given to Smith to make up the difference in elapsed times, to see who would be the King of the Cobra Jets. At the end of the day it was Smith who was crowned champion, proving once again that he’s one of the best Mustang drag racers out there.

While we couldn’t be at the Cobra Jet Showdown in person, Ford Racing came away from the event with plenty of photos of the cars in action (follow them on Facebook here). You can see them for yourself in the gallery below.
