AMES, Okla. (AP) - A northwest Oklahoma corn farmer has built an ethanol-fueled Ford Mustang that hit a speed of 252.78 miles per hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
Brent Hajek of Ames says he wants the world to know fuel containing 85 percent ethanol doesn't reduce a car's performance.
The speed is fastest recorded but isn't an official world record until it's duplicated.
Still Hajek says he did what he set out to do and that was to build the world's fastest Mustang and the world's fastest E-85 vehicle.
