Just when you had begun to think it was safe to come out and play, Stevie Fast is back!

Jackson’s familiar “Killin Time” orange flamed Fox body Mustang that had become an intimidating sight at any radial race it entered has remained parked thus far in 2010, as Steve has shoed an Outlaw 10.5 Mustang for another car owner. He has, however, parted ways with that team and will have his own car back in action beginning this weekend at Carolina Dragway, much to the dismay of his competitors.

“We’re going back to what we know…back to drag radial racing. That’s kind of where my heart is, so I’m looking forward to it.”

Jackson and crew will run a couple of ORSCA Limited Street races, the ORTC events, and “pretty much anything that pays money in drag radial.” He even relayed his intent to do some quarter mile racing, with the Shakedown in the fall tentatively penciled into the schedule.

“We made a couple quarter mile hits last year with our little motor, and its fast, so we’re looking forward to doing a little quarter mile racing. I’m probably the poorest guy in drag radial, so quarter mile is just hard on my stuff.”

Jackson has a new motor in the works that he hopes to have in the car at some point this season, which if its any improvement in performance over the current power plant – and he wouldn’t be building it if it weren’t – the rest of the class had better watch out.

“We’ll be making a lot more noise once we get this new motor. That’s when the sparks are gonna’ be flying. We’re gonna’ reset the world record. I don’t know if we’ll get it set by the end of this year, but by Donald’s race next February, we’re gonna’ set the world record.” It’s safe to say that a match up between the two drag radial juggernauts of Jackson and David Wolfe is high on the list of anyone that possesses any knowledge of these two combatants, and many were a little disappointed back in March upon learning that Steve wouldn’t be racing the familiar orange rocket. When asked of his thoughts on racing Wolfe, Steve was quick and to the point in his response. “I would love that. I’d love to set up a nice little match race between me and Wolfe.”

Butter up your popcorn folks, the show is about to start!
