Nitrous Mustang Grenades Motor For Win At Street Car Takeover!

The Street Car Takeover series brings out some serious cars at its many stops around the country with great on-track action with fast street cars battling it out in its wide range of classes. When Street Car Takeover rolled into the Beech Bend Raceway Park in Kentucky this year, the level of cars went up a notch, as the Rice family decided to show up and try their hand in the Small-Tire class with their backhalf Mustang.

Many will recognize the bright orange 2009 Mustang as the very car that Jennifer Brooke Rice pilots in the NMCA’s Nitrous Pro Street class. The car has been deep into the 7.20s with small-block Ford power and a big hit of nitrous, tuned by Jennifer’s father and veteran racer, Ed Rice. For the Street Car Takeover event, Ed jumped back behind the wheel to put some laps in.

 

In the first round,Rice had a bye run, which he used it to get car dialed-in. In the second round, Rice was able to take out a Camaro that got out of shape and had to lift. When the finals rolled around, he decided to step up on the tune-up against a boosted Fox body Mustang. Rice got the jump when the tree dropped and built a healthy lead, but near the top-end, the nitrous-assisted powerplant began to eat itself in spectacular fashion as Rice got his foot panted all the way to te stripe, trailing death smoke all the way to victory.
