FOUNDED IN 2017
God, country, and going fast! Welcome to Big Jon Racing™. Home of the world's first 200 mph standing mile Challenger Hellcat. Founded in 2017 by "Big" Jon & Shanae Cross.
We participate in 1-mile and 1/2-mile no prep top speed racing events with a mission to have the fastest top speed Dodge® Challenger on the planet.
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 returns to the track Fall of 2019 with a completely new setup attempting a new top speed record with his Challenger Hellcat.
2016 Dodge® Challenger SRT Hellcat
Big Jon is currently racing a 2016 Dodge® Challenger SRT Hellcat with a built Hellcat 426 Hemi™ stroker engine producing over 1100 hp with the stock 2.4L Hellcat supercharger.
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.
