Over the weekend of June 11-13, Tony Hobson and his crew chief, Eric Holliday of Justin’s Performance Center, took Hobson’s JPC Racing-backed 1990 Ford Mustang LX to the Street Outlaw winner’s circle at the Inaugural NRMA Ford Performance Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. This event marked Hobson’s first win in his ProCharged Fox body after a number of late-round finishes since initially fielding the car in 2020.
“We aren’t done yet,” says Hobson. “I have the best team behind me and I’m going to push us as far as we can go! Thank you to everyone that is involved, I can’t thank you guys enough!”
Hobson started his week with a set of strong qualifying runs, including a 4.353 lap at 165.01 mph which put him in the #1 spot for eliminations. With an odd number of cars, Hobson earned the first round bye, setting him up for an extra test run resulting in a 4.407 elapsed time at 164.77 mph.
In round two, Hobson used every bit of horsepower available from his 440 cubic-inch Ford engine to post a 4.378 at 164.29 mph run which defeated Steven Halprin’s 4.433-second effort. In the finals, Hobson ran a 4.422 to take down John Urist who slowed to a 5.065.
Hobson is also slated to run the finals of the rain-delayed NMRA St. Louis race at the start of the NMRA Power Festival at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, July 22-25.
Hobson’s Fox body propelled him to his second final and first win of the NMRA season with a lengthy list of track-tested performance components from JPCracing.com, including:
-Small Block Ford Engine
-ProCharger F-3D-106 Supercharger
-FuelTech FT600 Engine Management System
