RYAN "TOASTER" JONES - WORLD'S FASTEST AND QUICKEST OUTLAW 8.5 CAR! 4.854 ET @ 158.86 MPH!!!
Ryan Jones recently made the switch to a Hughes Performance billet Pro Series torque converter which paid off in big dividends. Ryan reset both ends of the Outlaw 8.5 record at the West Coast Hot Rod Association race at Famoso Raceway on July 15th, 2013. Ryan's twin-turbocharged SBC-powered Chevy II ran an incredible 4.854 E.T. at a blistering 158.84 MPH. Ryan also took the class win and is currently the points leader for the current WCHRA season. Making this feat even more impressive was the fact that Ryan achieved this incredible performance on tiny Mickey Thompson 235/60-15 Drag Radial tires which feature a measured tread width of only 7.6 inches! Congratulations Ryan! Hughes Performance is honored to be a part of your program and your success.
