Though a former racer in sand drags, Jack has been only an occasional visitor to the strip with his GT. Even so, he's managed an 11.71-second pass at 117.7 mph and is determined to do better; he knows there's more in the car, and he just can't leave well enough alone. "With the help of my friends, we'll try to make that quarter-mile time better."

It's all in the details, right Jack?
