The name John Calvert, of Calvert Racing, is analogous with Cobra Jet Mustangs. He piloted a 2008 version at the NHRA Winternationals in 2009, and on February 8-11 in Pomona, California, he will help Hajek Motorsports celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Cobra Jet Mustang with a special display at the upcoming Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals.

“This is the 50th Anniversary of the Cobra Jet and we’re excited to be a part of the NHRA Winternationals and to give everyone a close-up look at four of our 2008 Cobra Jets, including the one John Calvert drove to victory at the 2009 Winternationals,” said Brent Hajek, owner of Hajek Motorsports. “Cobra Jets won this event in 1968 and again in 2009, so this is an important milestone to recognize. We’ll have the cars on display and we hope everyone comes by to take a look and get some pictures.”

More than four 2008 Cobra Jet Mustangs will be on display for your viewing pleasure in Pomona, including John’s aforementioned 2009 Stock Eliminator Winternationals winning Cobra Jet Mustang.
“Ford Performance built the CJ in ’08 and we hustled to get the first four ready for the Winternationals in 2009,” Brent said. “We lettered each car as a tribute to the four cars that ran at Pomona in ’68 and Calvert won in the Al Joniec-clone Mustang. It was amazing, you couldn’t have written a script better than that. Not it’s the 50th Anniversary of the CJ, and we’re honored to display the cars.”
