Racer Jeff Jones Remains Relentless - Powered by SCAT & AFR

Posted by AFR on

Jeff Jones debuted a more powerful and lighter Nissan 370Z for the 2022 Formula Drift season opener in Long Beach, California. The 427 CID LS3 engine built by Custom Performance Racing Engines includes a SCAT rotating assembly with center counterweighted crankshaft, handling up 1,500 horsepower. Topped off with a pair of AFR’s Mongoose 260cc cylinder heads, Jones’ supercharged engine is meant for serious competition and high RPM.

“As with any new build there were many learning curves. We didn't get a lot of seat time prior to competition, with only one testing session prior to event load in. During the official FD practice, we had to get used to this brand new beast,” said Jones.

The Jeff Jones Racing team finished Round 1 in 32nd place, but this is just the beginning for the team this season. In 2021, the team achieved a final four finish, two great 8s and a first place podium finish at the Long Beach Grand Prix Super Drift Challenge.

Everyone at AFR expects great things from Jeff and the rest of his team as they head into Round 2 at Road Atlanta in May.
