Steve Willingham

Steve Willingham’s La Plata, MD based 1967 Ford Mustang is one of the truest forms of old school iron in all of Drag Radial racing. The Drummond Race Cars built machine is a father and son effort, piloted by Steve while his son Andrew handles the tuning and assists with the maintenance. The 67’ stays true to its blue oval roots boasting a 540” Twin Turbocharged Big Block Ford fitted with a pair of C-460 cylinder heads. Steve relies on the popular combination of a custom Pro Torque Converter and Proformance 2 speed Turbo 400 transmission. The team has their sights set on attacking the 4.40 E.T. mark early this season, which would immediately make them a force to be reckoned with in Outlaw Drag Radial. April 11th-13th marks the ODR season opener at Maryland Int’l Raceway at the 6th annual Door Wars. Check out this clip from the 2013 Door Wars event as Willingham lays down his career best of a 4.57!
