Racer Jeff Jones Remains Relentless – Powered by SCAT & AFR

Jeff Jones debuted a more powerful and lighter 370Z for the 2022 Formula Drift season opener in Long Beach. The 427 CID LS3 engine, built by CPR performance, features a SCAT rotating assembly with center counterweighted crankshaft, which can withstand up to 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. We only had one testing session prior to event load in. During the official FD practice, we got 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, Jones achieved a final four finish, two great 8’s and a first place podium finish at the Long Beach Grand Prix Super Drift Challenge.

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