Roy Hill’s Named Official Drag Racing School Of Ford Racing

Despite what some detractors may tell you, there’s a lot more to drag racing than just mashing the gas pedal and keeping the car straight. Drag racing is a complicated chess game where you get into your opponents head, knowing that anything less than absolute focus leads to failure. It’s the one sport where the outcome almost always comes down to hundredths of a second.

While we’re big advocates of going to the track and getting experience, there are some things you might never learn on your own. That’s where drag racing schools comes in, and Ford Racing recently announced a new partnership with the Roy Hill Drag Racing School. This partnership will allow all 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet owners to take free racing classes at Hill’s drag racing school in Sophia, North Carolina.

The partnership is reportedly the result of months of planning, and it will give all 2013 Cobra Jet buyers a chance to talk with professional racers and Ford engineers alike. Roy Hill’s racing school will also furnish them with full-fledged racing licenses, should they pass the rigorous testing procedures.

Hill, who races a James Finch-owned Cobra Jet, certainly has the history and experience to show new owners a thing or two about drag racing. Nailing the perfect reaction time, recovering from a bad start, and how to get into your opponent’s head are just a few things Hill can teach newbies and veteran racers alike.

Hill has been racing Ford vehicles since 1982, and there are few currently-competing racers who can match his level of experience. Getting a chance to learn from him is a big boon for all Cobra Jet owners.
