2013 Mustang Cobra Jet Makes Racing Debut

2013-cobra-jet

In Martin, the American Drag Racing League’s Summer National VIII was underway complete with 130 of the baddest cars around that showed up for the new class added, the Supercar Showdown. Between all of the colorful hot rods were a few gems that really stood out and one of those was the ’13 Cobra Jet Mustang. It made it’s first racing debut.

The cars were tearin’ up Martin Dragway in the ADRL’s Pro Stock, Pro Nitrous or any of the other pro classes being held Friday and Saturday. The Cobra Jet appeared at the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park with hardly any modifications, mostly a beast straight from the factory. It’s one car that caused quite a stir throughout the pits and grandstands.

This special car is limited to only 50 but one guy certainly had his hands on one and ready to go. That’s Drew Skillman from Indianapolis. He found his on the showroom floor of a family owned dealership, Ray Skillman Performance Ford. Who could resist taking a brand new Cobra Jet right away to the races? However, he decided to let Wes Wells drive the ’13 Cobra Jet while Skillman stuck to his ’12 Cobra Jet, one car that already landed him a victory at Gateway Drags. Saturday’s events were twice delayed by rain fall. Visit www.adrl.us for updates throughout Saturday evening and early Sunday morning for results.

“It had never been down the track before,” said Skillman, 24. “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 is no stranger to racing, obviously. He spent the last three years competing at the NHRA’s Stock Eliminator class now turned over some duties to Motorcycle racer, Wes Wells, since NHRA isn’t going on this weekend. Although Wells, 51, lost the semifinals to Drew Skillman but managed to make one heck of a pass at 116 mph in the ’13 Cobra Jet Mustang.

“I have driven the (2010) car, and the ’13 car has electric power steering, power assist for the steering, and Ford has done a lot of work lightening different parts of the car,” said Wells, of Greenwood, Ind. “The car is the most competitive car right out of the box compared to all the other cars.

“It’s a blast. It’s like cruising down the road. It really handles nicely. Ford did a great job with it. This thing leads pretty hard, but after you travel 20 or 30 feet, you are kind of like on a Sunday drive, compared to the motorcycle anyway.”

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
    makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more
    often. Did you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Outstanding work!

  117. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
