JPC Racing 2011 Ford Mustang

Last week we told you about the guys over at JPC Racing setting a new quarter mile record for the 2011+ Mustang 5.0 with an 8.02 second pass at 170 mph at the NMRA Finals in Bowling Green, KY. At the time we surmised that it wouldn’t be long before someone would break into the seven second zone, and now we can report that JPC has done just that. The Maryland based shop took the car out to their home track, Maryland International Raceway, earlier this week, and owner and driver Justin Burcham dropped a 7.94 ET at 172.8 mph on the very first run.

Burcham says he used the same setup as he did at the NMRA event last week – 17 psi from the single Precision 76mm turbocharger – with the exception of a freshened transmission. Amazingly, he thinks the car still has quite a bit of performance left in it and believes it will go even faster.

You can check out Burcham’s record-setting run in his turbocharged 2011 Mustang 5.0 in the video below.
