WannaGOFAST Half-Mile Shootout
Ocala, Florida was the place to be January 23-24 as gearheads put the throttle down at the WannaGOFAST half-mile shootout and Brothers Performance was there to capture the action. The WannaGOFAST shootout is an all-out performance extravaganza featuring side-by-side top-speed racing where fans can watch the best cars in the world ellipse 200 mph in a legal race. The WannGOFAST event is open to all types of cars and the goal is simply to accelerate the length of the half-mile course to achieve the highest possible top speed. We're all after speed, so be sure to check out our unlimited selection of performance parts to see how you can maximize horsepower and speed for your late-model performance car.

The race was held at Jumbloair Airport, a private strip and community. The runway is long, super wide and provides enough room for racers to wring out all the horsepower their cars and trucks can muster. “All of our participants will be given a chance to take their vehicle’s top speed down Jumbolair’s private 7,550-foot runway and race door-to-door against the competitor of their choice,” said Blake Hutchison, president of WannaGOFAST.
This is an event with no restrictions or speed limits, and tech inspection is really simple. As far as we could tell, just a safe car and a helmet were all that was needed to get on track. In fact, we saw a wide range of vehicle types, from stock Mustangs and Camaros, to fully modified American and imported machines, including the finest a Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and Lamborghini exotics. The fastest run of the day was performed in a twin-turbo Lamborghini that went 220 mph! WannaGOFAST restricts each event to 150 cars per day to give drivers the most amount of passes and racer must pre-register online prior to the event. Amazingly, registration for this event sold out in 12 minutes.
This is the first of six events, with the others taking place in Hot Springs, Virginia; Clayton, Georgia; French Lick, Indiana; and Sulphur Springs, Texas.
