426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

June 21st, 2017

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

Country Style Cash Days

June 7th, 2017

Where I come from, the smell of burning rubber goes hand-in-hand with tanned legs in Daisy Dukes – that’s one reason that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else on earth. I thank God for places such as this! This clip comes to us from a narrow strip of country road in farm country. These rural racers entertain all comers, during King of the Asphalt IV, and give them what-for between the corn rows. The pavement is thin but the rules are the same; don’t jump the start, don’t cross the center stripe, and the winner of each race advances Read More

Street Hits – 2500HP 1963 Plymouth Valiant

June 2nd, 2017

This is one of the baddest street machines on the planet! Climb onboard and take a ride in this heavily modified 1963 Plymouth Valiant. Get ready for the most intense ride of your life. This Mopar is NHRA certified with a 6.3-second elapsed time in the quarter-mile.

1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 Read More

Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

World Record Eighth-Mile – 1969 Dodge Dart

April 19th, 2017

It has been said that you just can’t keep a good man down. Lyle Barnett is a living example of that. After being badly burned while campaigning his Corvette during Lights Out 6 (2015), Lyle was back in the saddle for Lights Out 8. What took place there will be forever etched in the annals of drag racing history. Some might ask why Lyle would ever get back into a race car. Those people wouldn’t understand that inside him beats the heart of a drag racer. After a long recovery, Lyle climbed behind the wheel of Jason Digby’s 1969 Dodge Read More

Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night.

The official announcement of the impending 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sports car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth in anticipation of its release.
