If you have been following the progression of Melissa Urist’s 2015 Mustang GT, you know this car has always been at the forefront of 2015 Mustang GT performance. This Hellion Power Systems machine came out of the gate with 949 horsepower, ramped up to 1,135 horsepower and eventually put down over 1,400 horsepower to the rear wheels. Then it became the first 2015 Mustang to run in the 8-second range with a stock independent rear suspension.

At the NMRA Ford Motorsport Nationals this past weekend, Hellion Power Systems racer Melissa Urist ripped off a 8.71-second pass on 17-inch JMS wheels.

As you might have guessed from the success her husband John has earned in the NMRA’s Street Outlaw ranks, the Hellion team doesn’t rest on its laurels for long. Melissa was back pushing the envelope at the NMRA’s Ford Motorsport Nationals. The car took advantage of cool air and a good track to make its quickest runs yet in the Turbo Coyote Shootout.
