Dodge Ram Goes sets 224 mph Speed Record at Bonneville Speedweeks
A 5500 lbs Dodge Ram sponsored by Wayne Jesel set and then reset the Class C Modified Production record at Bonneville Salt Flats this week. The Quad Cab pick-up easily moved its 32 sq. ft. of frontal area, equivalent to an upright sheet of plywood, across the flats and obliterated the existing record of 158mph with an average speed of 203.87 mph on Sunday.
On Tuesday, Dodge Ram put it’s 930hp to full use on the long track. Resetting their own record, Jimmy Barton drove the 5500lb Dodge Ram Quad Cab pick-up to an astonishing 2 run average of 224.08 mph, officially setting the C/MP record and making it the fastest pick-up truck ever to run in its class at Bonneville Speedweeks.
