Steeda Suspensions Deliver the “Need for Speed”

Recently DreamWorks Pictures’ hit movie “Need for Speed” had it’s debut in theaters world-wide and the overriding star of the movie is a specially constructed and modified 2014 Mustang GT500 wide-body coupe. The movie is filled with action packed stunts and fast-paced driving as the starring Mustang holds its own against a variety of supercars from around the world. Steeda Autosports was actively involved with the preparation of the movie, supplying all of the various upgraded suspension components that turned the stock Mustang into an asphalt-carving performance machine.

Steeda’s Tom Ellis Undefeated in SCCA American Sedan in 2014

SCCA Club Racers officially rang in the New Year with checkered flags in January at the SCCA Sebring Super Tour at Sebring International Raceway, Round One of the Eastern Conference Majors Tour, and Steeda Autosports once again was leading the pack when our sponsored driver Tom Ellis took the checkered flag first in the fiercely competitive American Sedan class.

You have heard us before proclaim that the exceptionally challenging Sebring International Raceway is brutal on both cars and drivers – as only the most fit and best prepared cars survive the pounding that this course delivers. At this season opener, our own Tom Ellis commandingly not only won his races on both Saturday and Sunday, but he also scored overall Group 6 victory – a amazing feat in his Steeda Autosports prepared Mustang!

Two weeks later, Tom Ellis showed that the victories at Sebring were not anomalies when at the Palm Beach International Raceway he once again finished on the top podium position by beating all competitors and winning both races commandingly. Everyone at Steeda Autosports congratulates Tom on his highly successful start to the 2014 SCCA American Sedan race series!

Steeda’s John Urist Sets New Class Record

The 2014 Nitto NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton Florida this past weekend was the official kickoff of the 2014 drag racing series, and it was obvious that the NMRA racers most certainly did their homework during the off season and the competition was tighter than ever at this most challenging race series where there were some exciting passes and incredible competition down at Bradenton Motorsports Park.

John Urist

In the Street Outlaw class, Steeda and Nitto Tire sponsored driver John Urist led the field with his red 1993 Fox body Mustang by putting down a stellar 7.042 at 200 miles per hour and then went on to better that number with the quickest pass in class history – a 7.032 en route to the final round where he blasted his nearest competitor with a 7.10 run to once again take top honors. With a total of 8 National Championships under his belt already, John is once again off to a great start in the highly competitive NMRA Street Outlaw series. The entire Steeda Team congratulates John and his team for a job well done and we wish him continued success!
