If you have been a high school student than you can relate to Derek Murrell’s dream of blowing the pants off of his shop teacher Bill Rosenblum in a 1/4 mile grudge match style drag race, and somehow miraculously the blue oval fairies made it happen with a pair of highly modified 2010 Ford Mustang GTs. The one thing you have to watch out for when challenging a high school shop teacher to any sort of automotive competition is that they most likely have some sort of speed junkie inspired mechanical know how that got them into that position. Which just so happens to be the case with seasoned central Florida drag racing public school employee.
While Mr. Rosenblum was in charge of installing all of the Ford Racing Parts onto his shiny new Mustang, the student had another teacher, 10 time NHRA Pro Stock Champion Bob Glidden to help him figure out how to hook up the GT’s hoosier drag radials. But only the winner of this best two out of three competition will be able to take home their ride. Will Derek’s 11.2 second passes be good enough to make his dream come true?
