Granatelli Motor Sports’ sponsored racer Joe Charles won the prestigious and extremely competitive 2012 NMRA Strange Engineering Coyote stock class championship.

The class requires that the engine and computers are left stock and untouched.   “HiPo Joe’s” 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt, built by MV Performance, has run a blistering quarter mile time of 10.901@118.87 mph.  The championship winning ‘Stang is powered by a stone stock 2012 5.0L Coyote engine and Granatelli Hot Street Coils (P/N 28-1815HS).  According to HiPo Joe, “These Hot Street Coils will be used on both team cars for the 2013 race season!  They increase power to the spark plug up to 200% over the stock coil packs.  Since we can’t modify the engine for more power, the Granatelli Hot Street Coils were an ideal and welcomed addition.”
