When it comes to high-stakes NHRA drag racing competition, you need high-performance components that can take the heat. That’s why Don Fezell uses a McLeod Racing LLC clutch in his 2008 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet. But this isn’t just any Cobra Jet. We’re talking about the very car that recently broke the 8-second barrier in the NHRA Stock Eliminator Class.
As we told you back in April, Fezell made history when he drove his Cobra Jet to an astonishing 8.954-second elapsed time at 153.88 mph during the opening round of qualifying for the Stock Eliminator class at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals held at the zMAX Dragway this spring. Fezell is the first driver to ever record an 8-second pass in Stock Eliminator.
To do this, Fezell’s car had to be set up perfectly, and with a McLeod clutch, we have no doubt that was the case.
“I’ve been running a McLeod clutch in my Cobra Jet for years and have set a few records in the process,” Fezell told McLeod. “I can’t thank McLeod enough for building the highest quality and toughest clutch available. We literally abuse that McLeod clutch on every pass without ay failure.”
McLeod has been the go-to source for numerous nationally-known drag racers for years. With their superior clutch and other drive train components, McLeod offers a one-stop shop for anyone looking to go big with their vehicles.
“We are so proud to be able to prove on the track that McLeod clutches help drivers achieve record setting E.T.’s,” said Paul Lee, NHRA Funny Car Driver and McLeod Racing owner in a McLeod news release. “Our goal here at McLeod is to replicate our on-track success of quality and innovation into the design of all our clutches. From our Street Pro to our full race Pro Series, you can count on McLeod.”
