$5000 Grudge Match – Kye Kelly vs. Street Beast

August 24th, 2016

It’s Outlaw Armageddon, a gathering of the biggest and baddest names in No Prep drag racing, and it seems that some inflammatory statements have been made. Kye Kelly, in particular, has taken exception to comments made by the chief of the Street Beast team – a man they call Doc. Doc is long on guts and short on patience. Now, there will be repercussions. In typical No Prep fashion, these will come in the form of a big money grudge race. Somebody said $2,500 and another said $5,000 – the first barked back, “$5,000 it is.” Now it’s on like Read More

Twin Turbo S10 Posts 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 22nd, 2016

The thing that makes drag racing interesting is seeing a vehicle, like this 1987 Chevrolet S10 pickup that was never meant to go very fast, blast down the 1320 (feet) in less than 9-seconds at over 150 mph – time and time again! In my humble opinion, there are few things more satisfying than knowing that you have modified a vehicle so that it will do so much more than that for which it was designed. This compact pickup not only gets the job done on the track but it also proved that it can handle the rigors of Rocky Read More

Birkacup Street Elimination Tournament

August 19th, 2016

The Birkacup street eliminator has got to be the greatest single invention of the Swedish people. How awesome would it be to have a national street racing tournament, where the baddest cars in the land come to compete in heads-up single elimination dig racing? Of course, in the U.S., it would need to take place south of the border. Get this: These guys block off a section of the interstate and get down! Road rage must be a lot different in the city of Stockholm than it is in the States. I don’t know how things work in your town Read More

Heirloom Nova Posts Consistent 8-Second Passes

August 17th, 2016

You have to love hand-me-downs like this pretty 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This work in progress has been owned by members of the same family for more than two decades. In that time, it has gone from being a weekend street warrior (with a bench seat and a column shifter) to the turbocharged work of art that you see in this video. When this racer’s brother owned the Nova, it ran in the 12s. After it underwent a serious upgrade to a big block engine, it dropped down into the 10s. That was followed up by a small block with nitrous. Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

1000HP Hellcat Tears Up the Streets

August 16th, 2016

This Dodge Charger Hellcat is currently on a bit of a high horse – High Horse Performance, that is. The team at HHP helped this driver squeeze 1,000hp (950whp) from his 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI by adding a Diablosport tuner, a 2.85 crank pulley, a Green serpentine belt, a cat delete package, a set of Nitto NT 555R drag radials, and a nitrous kit. In factory trim the Hellcat Charger is touted as the baddest production sedan ever made. The 6.2-liter HEMI V8 makes 707hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Tonight, he is out trolling the streets for some action and he Read More

2000HP 1955 Chevy – Big Tire No Prep Racer

August 12th, 2016

This bad looking 1955 Chevrolet must truly strike fear into opposing cars because they just seem to lay down and die on the line. It is a pretty impressive looking hot rod but – darn it, guys – you gotta man up and give it all you got. Honestly, it don’t believe that it is fear. More than likely, it’s the stress and strain of sudden, maximum acceleration combined with the rigors of tremendous trap speeds followed by panic stops. This little red ’55 Chevrolet is packing a 2,000hp punch from a 632 cubic-inch big block and a 3-shot nitrous Read More

1400HP Rusty Camaro Takes Roll Racing Top Speed

August 2nd, 2016

They say that it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. Never have those words held more truth than with Eric Yost’s ‘rusted out’ classic Camaro. This thing certainly has that ‘distressed’ look that decorators find so appealing these days. Eric not only rolls out in the Outlaw class but also dips his toe in the roll racing event; posting a top speed for the event (174.89 mph) . The old Camaro is running a professionally built 352 cubic-inch engine being force fed air by a 91-millimeter turbocharger. When all the chickens are in the hen Read More

Street Race – Corvette vs. Shelby GT500

July 27th, 2016

It just doesn’t get much better than this; here is a classic street battle between Ford and Chevy. The action is coming at you from an industrial park – on a dead-end thoroughfare. The ‘Vette makes a great first impression as it comes on strong, looking like a beast during warm-ups. The Mustang comes out of the hole with cold tires and walks the track to win the first pass. In the second pass, it seems that the Chevy has made some tuning changes and defeats the Shelby handily. The only thing missing is a third and final pass for Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More
