FOUNDED IN 2017
God, country, and going fast! Welcome to Big Jon Racing™. Founded in 2017 by "Big" Jon and Shanae Cross.
We compete in standing 1-mile racing events with a mission to have the fastest standing mile Dodge® Challenger on the planet. Our fastest standing mile top speed to date is 208.3 MPH.
Big Jon is a Kansas native born and raised in the Wichita, KS. Standing tall at a height of 6'4" and weighing 245 lb., it doesn't take long to figure out why they call him Big Jon. His passion for racing developed early on in life while attending many drag and oval racing events.
Big Jon was introduced to land speed racing in early 2017 when he first competed in The Texas Mile event. Since then, it has been full speed ahead as he went on to set the Dodge® Challenger SRT Hellcat standing mile record at 200.1 mph in early 2018. This marked the first time for a Challenger Hellcat to enter the 200-mph club in the standing mile and it was accomplished with a factory stock motor and supercharger.
In October of 2018, Big Jon set the bar even higher with a new standing mile record at 202.8 mph. This new record was achieved with a few changes to the car, but still accomplished using the stock motor and supercharger.
Big Jon ended 2019 with a bang propelling his Challenger Hellcat to the top of the class with a record top speed run of 208.3 MPH blower only with no nitrous.
2020 is right around the corner with improvements already underway to our Challenger Hellcat. Next year is shaping up to be the best yet!
2016 Dodge® Challenger SRT Hellcat
Big Jon is currently racing a 2016 Dodge® Challenger SRT Hellcat with a built Hellcat 426 Hemi™ stroker engine setup with a Magnuson® 2.65L supercharger on a Holley® EFI.
Our logo incorporates everything Big Jon wanted to represent: God, country, and going fast!
Big Jon's racing number references God's promise to believers in the book of Revelation 3:11 when Jesus said, "I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown." This is Big Jon's favorite scripture and is the foundation of our team. If you look closely, you will find it overlaid on the back bumper.
