Longtime Ford Pro Stock racer Robert Patrick is set to return to the NHRA in 2010 with a new Pro Stock Mustang currently being built at Jerry Haas Race Cars in Fenton, MO.

Patrick posted a rendering of the new car and to our surprise the sleek pony sports a white and blue paint job rather than the traditional red paint of previous cars. The white paint is accented with a throwback “double hockey stick” blue side stripe and blue hood and deck lid. It’s a clean looking design and sponsorship will come from longtime sponsor Purvis Ford and EasyCare.

We anticipate Patrick will keep his current ADRL Extreme Pro Stock 2005 Mustang for select ADRL events and race the new 2010 Mustang in NHRA Pro Stock events east of the Mississippi. Longtime engine builder Bob Ingles will handle both the ADRL 815 c.i. mountain motor and 500 c.i. NHRA Pro Stock engine. Ingles and Patrick will be taking advantage of the new Ford Racing Pro Stock block and heads that are now available to racers.

The last time Patrick competed in an NHRA Pro Stock event was at the 2002 NHRA Finals in Pomona. In 2003, Robert moved to IHRA Pro Stock and won the 2007 IHRA Pro Stock Championship. In mid-2008, Patrick moved over to the ADRL Extreme 10.5 Class and found the mountain motor to a small tire combination a challenge. Last year he ran a full season in ADRL’s Extreme Pro Stock Class and finished fifth in season points.
