This is how we roll in the Dirty South, and it doesn’t get any dirtier than Gulfport Mississippi and the Gulfport Dragway; venue of the Dirty South No Prep Finals. Represented in this top tier No Prep (1/8-mile) event are some of the baddest street racers in the land.

2JZ Swapped Classic Pontiac – 10-Second Sleeper

November 25th, 2018

Talk about a budget build; this 1966 Pontiac Tempest is like a cross between Dragnet and The Jetsons. It reminds me of Bizarro World in the old Superman comics. Typically, racers purchase a small import coupe and install a massive V8 with a power-adder (or two). Not this time – this little creampuff has four-doors and plenty of ballast. The big V8 engine has been tossed aside for a more economical Toyota 2JZ, inline 6-cylinder (from a Lexus SUV). The turbo installation kit, turbocharger, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and aluminum racing radiator are all e-bay items. A Microsquirt ECU controls Read More

Even legendary warrior Eric Bloodaxe needed an aerodynamic vessel beneath him. After all, this Volvo is shaped like a cinder block. Do not worry and do not fret; this tenacious team is geared towards building a street sleeper perfectly suited for success Read More

9-Second Stock Challenger Hellcat

November 20th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to Atco Dragway in scenic New Jersey, USA. On tap today is a stock Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that is capable of blowing through the quarter-mile in just over 9-seconds (9.17-seconds @ 150.58 MPH). Knowing that the Hellcat package includes a supercharged (707HP) 6.2-liter HEMI engine, you might be wondering how fast Dodge says this cat can claw through the 1320. Strangely enough, Chrysler only has its flagship coupe getting through the quarter-mile in 10.8-seconds. So, where did this racer shave nearly 2-seconds? No hard parts have been changed and neither the engine nor Read More

LS9 Swapped Mustang Gets Last Laugh

November 15th, 2018

When it comes to racing, you can expect a certain amount of trash talking. They talk about your crew, talk about your car, and they talk about you. It don’t mean nothing on the blacktop and haters are going to hate. The racer featured in this clip has been teased, ridiculed, and outright criticized about things that don’t matter a hill of beans in the big picture. So, he’s got a Chevy mill in a cherry Mustang. I say live and let live. One thing is for sure; he plans to take the cash and bragging rights on the way Read More

November 13th, 2018

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome to the Houston Raceway. This clip brings us the quickest (quarter-mile) C7 Corvette and consequently, Gen V LT powered vehicle on the planet! If quarter-mile drag racing has a Mecca, it’s the 7-second elapsed time. Everyone dreams of climbing into their own custom-crafted drag racing machine and posting a 7-second pass at nearly 200 MPH. The crew at LMR (Late Model Racecraft) is more than prepared to take the plunge (into the sevens) and etch their names into the annals of history. At the heart of this World Record Holder is an LME (Late Read More

Cowmaro – 1100HP Full Build Rundown

November 10th, 2018

Want to know how to squeeze over 1,000HP out of an LS Camaro? Here’s the gameplan: At the heart of this all-American monster is an RPM built 416 cubic-inch (Texas Speed 4-inch stroke crankshaft) LS3 block with Callie’s CompStar connecting rods and Wiseco pistons. The compression ratio is estimated to be 11:1. That’s ideal when you’re running E85 fuel. The camshaft is an RPM general purpose unit that is relatively versatile. The moderate cam allows the car to run a supercharger, turbos, or naturally aspirated without a lot of extra headaches. Up top, we have a set of LSA ported Read More
