Fast Fred – 5-Second Chevrolet C10

August 15th, 2019

Meet Fast Fred (I personally like Five-Second Fred better, but I don’t get to pick the names). Fast Fred is from Stockholm, Sweden (not Alabama). He is campaigning the 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup that his father used to pick him up from school. He bought the truck from Dad when he was nineteen and it has been an example in the evolution of speed ever since. Fred is quite a character and his truck is unforgettable. Most of the patina on the truck exterior is man-made but it has been in a shop fire. Fred almost lost everything until the Read More

10-Second Acura NSX – Track Dig and Roll

August 15th, 2019

So, many among us are guilty of overlooking (underestimating) the Acura NSX. I know that I am one such individual. In an effort to say oops to the vaunted Japanese car giant (Honda), this post will focus on a 2017 Acura NSX which has undergone only tuning mods. Can the little mid-engine (hybrid) roadster stand up to the track test? Today, it’s drag racing and roll racing. Let’s have a look. In the first pass of the video, this Mustang sounds exactly like a power saw. I don’t know what one must do to make his car sound like a Read More

Domestic Street Beasts – Highway Hits

August 12th, 2019

It’s time again to head out to the interstate (of Mexico) with a group of tier one street (roll) racers. These guys boast some of the baddest purpose-built roll racing machines in the nation. Saddle up! Fresh out of the gate, we have a twin turbo Gen VI Camaro against a turbo LS Mustang (so, basically two Camaros). The Mustang falters on the hit and can’t continue. A Fox Body with a turbo Coyote motor takes his place. Looks like the Ford got him but it’s difficult to say for certain. Next up is a closer look at the previously Read More

8-Second Turbo S10 Dominates Truck Class

August 7th, 2019

Excuse me! It’s officially a 7-second Turbo S10 after posting a 7.78-second pass @ 178 mph in the finals of the Truck Class at Street Car Takeover Indianapolis.

After a solo pass of 8.23-seconds @ 134 mph in the quarter finals, the S10 Read More

Roll Racing – West Texas Street Hits

August 5th, 2019

As temperatures reach into the triple digits and the days grow longer, street racers take to the interstates (of Mexico) for some roll racing in the night air. This is door handle to door handle racing from 60 mph to 140 mph – as quickly as possible. It’s a warm night but I almost have goose bumps as we roll onto the interstate. Slow. Deliberate. Like a storm rolling in on the horizon. Suddenly a Mustang pulls alongside the 1,000hp Twin Turbo Trans Am and gives the sign. A count erupts and it’s on like hotcakes! In multiple passes, the Read More

Superbowl of Street Racing

July 25th, 2019

Is this the biggest night of street racing all year? Maybe so. One thing is for sure; some of the heaviest hitters in roll racing have gathered (in Mexico) for this street racing extravaganza. The evening begins inside the BADCOBRA – a 1,200hp twin turbo Cobra Mustang. This thing is super-fast. When a ProCharged Corvette Z06 rolls alongside – it’s on like hotcakes. BADCOBRA FTW in multiple passes. Next up is BADCOBRA vs the midnight Corvette ZR1 (and some kind of speedy motorcycle). This time, the Chevy gets the jump and gaps BADCOBRA. Now a pair of rabid Nissans attack Read More
