Pevlor Picks Up Ultra Street ET Record at Shakedown

By Mary Lendzion

While he’s been crossing the country to compete in Ultra Street, Ultra 275, Nitrous X and MX235 and racking up wins along the way, Shawn Pevlor of Cincinnati, Ohio had his sights set on sailing in Team Z Motorsports Ultra Street at the Summit Racing Equipment Shakedown at the Summit presented by Mickey Thompson Performance Tires and Wheels, this weekend, Sept. 16-18, 2016 at Summit Motorsports Park.

He did just that by motivating his Mustang to an incredible 4.763 and 148 mph in early qualifying to ceremoniously set the elapsed-time record for the category, which multi-time champion Butch Kemp of Romeo, Michigan had held since March with a 4.773.

The powerful powerplant helping Pevlor claim the record consists of a BES-built 439 cubic-inch small-block Ford topped with Trick Flow High Port heads and a Book Racing carburetor, with added kick from a Kevin Neal/Nitrous Express nitrous system. Pevlor relies on an NLR AMS 2000 nitrous controller, and an RPM Transmissions-built Turbo 400 helps the car, which rolls on shocks and struts massaged by Menscer Motorsports, plant all of the power to the pavement. For this event, Pevlor weighed in at 2925 pounds, a hundred pounds heavier than usual.

“Shawn Pevlor and Jason Waterman are very deserving,” said former Ultra Street record holder Kemp. “They keep their noses to the grindstone and make progress every race.”

Now, Pevlor, who won in Team Z Motorsports Ultra Street at this event in 2014, is preparing to roll into the lanes the first round of eliminations, Sept. 18, where he’ll have his work cut out for him against a host of race- and championship-winning drivers who hold nothing back when it comes to winning.
