ANOTHER FIRST FOR STEVE JACKSON – FIRST ADRL PRO DRAG RADIAL WINNER
ProCharger-powered racer Steve Jackson continued his record-breaking performances this past weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park’s ADRL Simply Phones U.S. Drags VI with the orange 93 Mustang which has helped establish his reputation as a highly competitive and skilled racer. Jackson is the first ever winner in Virginia of the ADRL Pro Drag Radial. With an 1/8 mile time of 4.526 @ 178.26, Steve and his Mustang equipped with a ProCharger F-3R-136 took the win over Mark Micke and his twin-turbocharged 78 Malibu.
This win was particularly special to Steve: He’s first in the record books, and it was a win with a car he wasn’t planning on seeing, yet alone racing any time soon since he sold it last year to Sheikh Khalid-Al-Thani of Qatar, owner of Al-Anabi Racing Team. Jackson received an unexpected call from the Sheikh who wanted to send the ProCharged Mustang back to the states just so Steve could compete in Pro Drag Radial. What a great sight for all of us to see Steve running and winning with the orange supercharged Mustang again.
If you remember from earlier in the year, Jackson was in Qatar participating in the Arabian Drag Racing League as a driver on the Al-Anabi Racing Team. Steve broke all kinds of records in Qatar with this orange ProCharger-equipped Mustang, already one of the quickest machines on drag radial tires. Check out what Steve has to say about his racing experience in Qatar.
Thanks to Sheikh Khalid-Al-Thani for giving Steve the opportunity to compete in Virginia Motorsports Park’s ADRL Pro Drag Radial with this Mustang and ProCharger supercharger, and congratulations Steve for another record-setting win!
