2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

Fun Ford Weekend has announced the creation of the Cobra Jet Challenge, a special class devoted to the FR500CJ Cobra Jet Mustangs produced by Ford Racing. The race class will be sponsored by Aeromotive, with the first event being held at the Fun Ford Weekend season-opener at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas from March 23-24.

“Racers and spectators alike are in for an awesome show of Ford horsepower with the Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge,” said Jeff Lacina of Fun Ford Weekend. “Right from Ford Racing, these are awesome race cars, but once the owners and race teams get a hold of them, they are amazingly fast race cars. There are some very colorful cars – and owners – in the Cobra Jet family. Thanks to Aeromotive and the owners of the Fun Ford Weekend Series, the Cobra Jet Challenge will be a highlight of the weekend for the racers and spectators.”

“To be a part of a legend, the Ford Cobra Jet, is a truly something special,” said Jesse Powell of Aeromotive. “Writing your name in the history books is not something that most people get a chance at. For a manufacturer, its extremely rare. These are awesome cars and any chance we have to get these on the race track is a treat for the owners as well as the fans. We want to show our support to both Ford and to the owners of these vehicles by providing an opportunity to race.”

Complete rules for the 2012 Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge will be announced during the week of February 6 and available online at www.funfordweekend.com.
