Rollin’ The Dice—MMR Runs 5.67 at 265 mph in Las Vegas!


MMR Pro Mod Mustang Record Holding CoyoteModular Motorsports Racing (MMR) has been pushing the boundary of Modular and Coyote performance in NMCA VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod for the past several years. They’ve run in the 3.70s at well over 200 mph in the eighth-mile competition and brought the fight to the big-block crowd, despite being less than the half displacement of the nitrous motors in the category.

Each year MMR’s Mark Lutton and Greg Seth-Hunter let their big power Coyote cars stretch out on the long track with quarter-mile racing during the Street Car Super Nationals held at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This year the team was rewarded with a staggeringly quick performance from the MMR Gen X billet combination. The Jerry Haas Race Cars 2017 Mustang traversed the fabled drag strip in just 5.678 seconds at a speed of 265.43 mph!

The MMR Gen X 351 engine features a billet engine block that is topped with GT350 cylinder heads, custom MMR camshafts, and MMR billet intake manifold. A pair of Garrett GTX 88mm turbochargers provides the boost while a FuelTech FT600 and FT Spark handle the fueling and spark control for the 4,000hp combination. The drivetrain consists of a M&M Racing Transmission TH400 two-speed with a Pro Torque converter.

The team only had the silver car in Pro Modified as the second MMR entry was sold off last month to a No Time racer. Seth-Hunter will be piloting a new car in 2020 but packing the same MMR Gen X engine package that has served them so well over the last three seasons.
