Stevie “Fast” Jackson Unveils New Rick Jones Race Cars NHRA Pro Mod


Coming off a quarter-final finish at the crazy Lights Out X race two weeks ago, Stevie “Fast” Jackson is back into NHRA/RPM Pro Modified prep. He took delivery of a new Rick Jones Race Cars 2018 Chevy Camaro. The car will fly the Bahrain 1 Racing colors once again in 2019 and the team is heading out to Orlando Speed World for the official NHRA/RPM Pro Mod warm-up.

Nearly a year ago Jackson wrecked his NHRA Pro Mod Camaro during the four-wide race at zMax Dragway, forcing him to convert his Shadow 2.0 Radial vs. The World/Grudge car into class legal trim in order to finish the season. It was a rough start to Shadow 2.0’s NHRA career with struggles. However, the team got it together to capture a class win during the US Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

The Shadow 2.0 was built to be a versatile racecar, it doesn’t feature a long wheelbase like a typical Pro Modified but they’ve run everything from a Roots-blown HEMI to a ‘screw setup, super lightweight for grudge racing, and—of course—on a set of Mickey Thompson ET Street Pro 315 tires. It has dipped into the 3.60s with a best of 3.68 at 202 mph in Radial vs. The World trim. Jackson has also gone 5.70s at over 250 mph with a NHRA-legal combination.

Stay tuned as Jackson rolls out his new Pro Mod this weekend as he prepares for a championship chase in the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Modified season that begins with the 50th annual Gatornationals in two weeks.
