Zoian Racing Toyota Clocks Import World Record 5.66 In Orlando!

Mere days after re-taking the elapsed time world record for inline six-cylinder-powered and import doorslammers with a stunning 5.70-second pass, Puerto Rico’s Zoian Racing and driver Victor Flores stunned the drag racing world yet again, recording an out-of-this-world 5.660-second, 255.34 mph pass at the Orlando Speed World Dragway in Florida on Friday afternoon.

Flores went an incredible .953 to sixty-feet and a 3.74 at just shy of 195 mph to the eighth-mile. While unconfirmed, unofficial record-keeping indicates Flores’ 5.660 — just two and a half tenths off the all-time doorslammer record of any engine combination — would place the Zoian Toyota within the top 10 quickest turbocharged Pro Modifieds in history.

Unfortunately for Flores and the Zoian camp, their foray into the 5.60s was the highlight of a weekend of contrasts; after qualifying number one in the Extreme Compact division at the Orlando’s Winter Nationals with a 5.71, the Zoain Camry caught fire near mid-track in its opening round elimination match-up on Sunday, causing extensive damage to the car. Flores, fortunately, emerged unharmed and the team is already vowing a quick turnaround to continue to their impressive — and historic — racing endeavors.
