Drag Cartel Team Owner/ Driver Jeremy Lookofsky Sets Out To Make 2014 A Success & Record Breaking Year,

 
 

Englishtown, NJ Jeremy Lookofsky & the Drag Cartel Drag Civic at the Fall Nationals.
October, 2013
This marks the final points race of the season. CARTEL was out in full force with their unstoppable race car, every event.

Lookofsky was excited to get back to New Jersey and into his Drag Car. The facility is known to be a fast track with great track prep and cold air. Lookofsky and crew did their homework and by the end of the qualifying session Lookofsky was sitting in the #1 position once again. Needless to say, not just #1, but the only Naturally Aspirated Car in the class posting up 8 sec quarter mile passes. This was a huge statement to the competitors that CARTEL is King: we make things happen and set the bar high year after year.

As the #1 seeded car in the opening round, Lookofsky raced a slower opponent taking the win light. Round 2, we had a Bye Run where we used the pass as some data to help us win in the finals. As the final round rolled around we were set to run; it was anyone's game at this point but as the lights dropped we encountered a mechanical failure leaving us out to dry. Needless to say it was an eventful weekend and 2nd Place is not a bad way to end the year. Our hopes are to run a full season in 2014. Stay tuned, things can only get faster from here.

Feb, 2013
This marks the first race of the season. CARTEL was out in full force with their unstoppable race car laying down 8 second passes all day.

Lookofsky was excited to get back to racing at a local track and event. The facility has a lot of history dating back to the Battle of the Import days and top it off, it's a fast track with great track prep and cold air. Lookofsky and crew did their homework and by the end of the qualifying session Lookofsky was sitting back on top with a 8.96 @ 150, right where he left off in October last year, and finished runner up against a Pro Turbo car that runs 8.5 @ 170 mph.

Jerremy Lookofsky New World Record
Oct 6, 2012
Englishtown, NJ Jeremy Lookofsky & the Drag Cartel Drag Civic at the Fall Nationals. This marks the final point's race of the season. CARTEL was out in full force with their unstoppable racecar every event.

Lookofsky was excited to get back to New Jersey & into his Drag Car. The facility is known to be a fast track with great track prep & cold air. Lookofsky & crew did there homework and by the end of the qualifying session Lookofsky was sitting in the #1 position once again. Needless to say not just # 1 but yet the First Naturally Aspirated 4 cylinder to run an 8 sec quarter mile pass in the World. This huge accomplishment & long awaited journey rewards the team yet another World Record and setting the bar once again with an elapsed time of 8.96 @ 150 mph.

As the #1 seeded car in the opening round, Lookofsky was granted a bye run where he anticipated running yet another 8 sec pass and possible lower the record but good old Mother Nature decided to Rain. With that said the event was canceled & we were forced to pack up the trailer & hold off until the 2013 race season.

Lookofsky finished 2nd place in points not far behind the leader Jonathon Reynolds. Not bad for being on a limited race schedule missing (2) of the 5 events during the summer based on budget & other obligations within the CARTEL. Are hopes are to run a full Season in 2013. Stay Tuned things can only get faster from here.
