Jay Brown's 1969 Mustang "Shelby Clone" at the 2015 Hot Rod Drag Week

2015 Drag Week Results:

Modified Naturally Aspirated Class
Five Day Average: 8.9874 @ 149.168mph


Jay Brown entered the event in his 1969 Mustang “Shelby 500 clone” – Jay chooses to run a very rare SOHC engine that he developed on his own engine dyno at home.  At a naturally aspirated 585 cubic inches it makes 992hp!  Read more about it here: http://www.hotrod.com/events/hot-rod-drag-week/2015/1509-jay-browns-1000hp-8-second-sohc-shelby-at-drag-week-2015/

Jay uses MS3X on his Cammer engine, and it showed strong right out of the gate on Monday with a class-leading 8.918 at 149.61mph.  He made the drive that evening to Indy with no major issues.  However, the second place car was very close to him with 9.050 @ 150.61mph!

Tuesday in Indy, Jay was able to submit a 8.885 @ 149.02mph, a little quicker ET and a little slower MPH.  However, the second place car was less than .1s average behind Jay, requiring Jay to maintain his performance into day 3.

Wednesday in Union Grove, WI Jay managed an 8.943 @ 150.00mph, while the second place car lost about a half second ET to give Jay a little breathing room (the less each driver has to push their car for best ET, the better chance they have of surviving the entire week without damage significant to put them out of the event).  On the drive to Cordova, Jay broke a rocker arm but had spares and was able to repair it on the route.

Thursday in Cordova, IL Jay’s closest competitor had to drop out permanently due to mechanical issues.  This allowed Jay to slow down a little to keep the car and engine healthy for the rest of the week, so he submitted a 9.139 @ 148.01mph pass for the day and hit the road back to St Louis.

Friday in St Louis, Jay submitted an easy 9.052 @ 149.20mph for the Modified Naturally Aspirated class win!  Congrats Jay!
