Ford F-250 SD Adds Pace to its Brawn with Two Land Speed Records

Hajek Motorsports took their F-250 Super Duty 182mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

The Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup is widely regarded as a truck that can tow pretty much anything you need to tow. Well, you can go ahead and add to that to that reputation a truck than can run, and run pretty darn fast. Hajek Motorsports has taken their F-250 Super Duty pickup to the Bonneville Salt Flats and broke a pair of land speed records. The truck boasts a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine which was tuned by Hajek to put out a fierce 400hp.

800lb-ft of torque makes sure the big truck gets a quick jump off the line. The records broken include the top speed of 182mph for a B20 (20% bio-diesel fuel) and the record for a B-Production Diesel truck, hitting 171.123mph. The previous record-holder ran a paltry 130.614mph when compared to the blistering Ford. "Racing is part of Ford Motor Company's DNA so it's only natural for us to build a race vehicle that demonstrates Ford's leadership in the diesel and biodiesel truck market," said Brent Hajek, Hajek Motorsports owner. With speeds topping 180mph for a full-size, almost stock pickup Hajek sure has a lot to be proud of.
