Ricky Fox

“Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown”, no quote is more fitting for 3x and defending Outlaw Drag Radial Champion Ricky Fox. Internet forums and social media have buzzed all off-season long about who will be the biggest threat to dethrone Fox’s 1990 Mustang. Both Grudge and Class racers alike have lined up for their shot at the car known as “Animal Control” which has built even more anticipation for the cold Maryland weather to break and the 2014 season to begin. To defend his championship title, Ricky will utilize a massive 894” Fulton Competition engine equipped with 5 stages of Nitrous, a Pro Torque Converter and a Rossler 2 speed transmission. Dave Zimmerman and the crew at Team Z motorsports provide the chassis fabrication and suspension tuning. The car is also fitted with a custom Spaghetti Menders wiring system ensuring reliable and consistent performance. The former Stock Suspension Nitrous World Record holder is aiming to take his record back from fellow Fulton Competition racer Brian McGee, which would require a pass in the low 4.30’s. Check out this clip for a couple of passes during a private test session last season at MIR and don’t miss the beginning of Ricky’s title defense April 11-13 2014 at Maryland Int’l Raceway’s Door Wars.
