Trevor Eman and the Aruba.com team just took delivery of a new Jerry Haas-built 2018 Mustang. This will be the first major update for the team since they debuted their 2011 Mustang seven years ago. The new Mustang will be equipped with their tried and true Jon Kaase Ford power.
“The car is beautiful,” stated team owner Ven Eman. “It’s difficult to say, but it’s even more beautiful than the other one. It’s really nice. It looks fast and it should be more aerodynamic.”
The Aruba.com Team has historically had some of the most eye-catching rides in drag racing and this Mustang is no different. It personifies the Emans’ island paradise home with vibrant colors depicting deep blue waters with palm trees set against a sunset backdrop. The car serves as a rolling billboard for a dream vacation.
I’m very excited for the new car. It’s been tough to be on the sidelines this season, but we know this ride will be worth the wait.
The Emans flew in from Aruba to the team race shop in Union, South Carolina to take delivery of the new Mustang this week, and the team got to work right away, fitting Trevor for the car and making final preparations just in time to test locally this weekend.
“I’m very excited for the new car,” added Trevor. “It’s been tough to be on the sidelines this season, but we know this ride will be worth the wait. We’ve been watching Extreme Pro Stock and the competition has been incredible. We can’t wait to get back out there and see what this new whip will do against the competition.”
The Aruba.com Team plans to head to Union County Raceway to make the Mustang’s first passes this weekend. The first event will be the PDRA Drag Wars at GALOT Motorsports Park, September 6-8.
