Big Tire No Prep – New York Street Outlaws

April 17th, 2021

Despite not being known as a hot bed for No Prep Drag Racing, the New York State area put on a pretty good show from South Mountain Raceway (Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania). Some real heavy hitters showed up for the eighth-mile event, including Swamp Thing and White Zombie  – all the way from the bogs of Mississippi. The venue is an eighth-mile stretch of blacktop. As the name implies, the track is not prepped, and track conditions are purposely meant to resemble those of a street race. No timers and no tree are used. Just a flag man and a spotter Read More

Holy Turbo Noise – Twin Turbo El Camino Hits the Street

April 15th, 2021

You cant’ help but love the Chevy El Camino. After all, it’s half car, half-truck and all fun. Nicknamed the Mullet. the El Camino that Cleetus and crew have built is a particularly prime example. Purpose built for drag racing, this eighties “caruck” is nearing the end stages of an exemplary build. Today, we get to drop in at the shop as they fire it up and take it to the street. Buckle up.

7-Second Lexus IS300 – 1300HP Turbo 2JZ

April 9th, 2021

We are back to TX2K21 for this one. Tonight, we meet Murda 2J and he brings us up to speed on his incredible Lexus (Toyota) IS300. Even with a stock (not sleeved) engine block, this compact sedan can claim the title for first IS300 to ever post a 7-second quarter-mile (7.8-seconds). The motor is a stock 2JZGE, which is one of the inline 6-cylinder bottom-ends originally used by Lexus. Although the block is essentially stock, the pistons and connecting rods have been replaced with performance parts and hardware. The cylinder head has been upgraded to a 2JZGTE model head. The Read More

Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel. This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. Read More

Comeback Kid – 1800HP Stick Shift Camaro

April 3rd, 2021

This kid has got an incredible story to tell drag racing fans around the world. After posting a personal best ET of 7.48-seconds @ 191 mph at TX2K21, this guy pulled the ‘chute and slammed his bomb-diggity Camaro into the retaining wall on the left. Typically, this would indicate that a driver and race team were through. Lucky for these guys, the competitors at TX2K21 were not having any of that. This rowdy band of gearheads pitched in and removed the damaged front panels, replaced the front spindles and swapped the wheels. With a few more wrinkles in the rear Read More

TX2K21 Competitors Take to the Streets

March 24th, 2021

Where do you think all those TX2K21 gearheads go when the dragstrip closes? Well, this group of hardcore dig racers decided to do some street racing (on a closed course in Mexico). They trailered their Small Tire monsters in and prepared to get down for a pile of cash. The rules are typical. Don’t cut the light early. Don’t cross the center line in front of your opponent. Be the first to cross the finish line. Accomplish these three things more than anyone else on the property and take home all the money. Oh, by the way, it’s a single Read More

Compton Speedway – Hellcat Redeye vs Twin Turbo 300Z

March 18th, 2021

Here we are back at the Compton Speedway. With the extreme buildup of rubber on the surface, this strip of public thoroughfare more closely resembles a dragstrip. Nevertheless, street racers gather here on a nightly basis to duke it out for cash money. As if the racing were not entertaining enough, the posturing and trash talking can be very boistrous. Other times, it results in violence and that is just sad. Should be all about the racing. Tonight, we have a good one on hand. A twin turbocharged (V8 swapped) Datsun Z-Car is taking on a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye Read More
