Jeff Jones Racing of the US Formula Drift Championship Series is extremely proud to announce that we have partnered up with Edelbrock performance for the 2017 FD season. We will be running the E-Force supercharger in our fully equipped race engine from CPR. The E-Force Supercharger will be on display under the hood and in the pits for the fans to get up close and personal.

“I am super excited to announce that I am bringing Edelbrock and the E-Force Supercharger into Formula Drift. I grew up seeing Edelbrock in magazines and now I get to represent them in the sport of drifting. I think we are a new generation of muscle heads jamming 500 to 800 HP into these small chassis and then going out and sliding them. I think that Edelbrock coming into the sport of drifting is just one more thing that solidifies how large drifting has become in the US. I also think that drifters and car builders of today will be happy to see Edelbrock is making parts that we can use for our daily drivers and our race cars.” Jeff Jones

“Edelbrock is excited to join the Jeff Jones Racing team for the 2017-18 Formula DRIFT seasons,” states Eric Blakely, Edelbrock Director of Advertising. “Edelbrock has been involved in many forms of racing since its inception 79 years ago. Formula DRIFT offers us a great opportunity for Edelbrock to showcase its E-Force line of superchargers. We look forward to working with Jeff and his team to help them accomplish their goals for this season.” Eric Blakely
