Corvette vs. Mustang – Street Hits

August 22nd, 2018

Like a pack of wild dogs these Corvettes are attacking a Mustang like he’s got peanut butter smeared all over his undercarriage. These things are crazy-fast and ripping through the streets of Old Mexico like a hot knife through butter. Come on and have a gander. You know it’s going to be a great night when your camera car is a (black) Corvette ZR1 with a camshaft and cylinder head upgrade. Oh, and don’t forget a Kong ported blower treatment with an ice water intercooler. Opening up these blowers is yielding some amazing gains in horsepower and torque. Climb in Read More

August 17th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Street Car Takeover, Denver.

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

Fastest 2018 Mustang – Taking it to the Street

August 10th, 2018

This tale begins with a beautiful 2018 Ford Mustang. The pony car has been treated to a pair of turbochargers via an Aldo Welds TT Kit. The car is prepared by Midnight Performance and tuned by Lund Racing. Let’s see what happens when he hits the streets (of Mexico). Alas! Our first victim is a 900hp Chevy Corvette ZR1. As we pull onto the interstate; he rolls alongside for a 60 to 120 pass. In multiple hits, the ‘Vette gets the jump, but the Mustang squeezes him out at the end of each. Next, we have a twin turbo Camaro Read More

August 9th, 2018

Don’t overlook our brothers and sisters of speed and horsepower in the great pacific Northwest. Spokane County (Washington) Raceway and Street Car Takeover deliver with some of the maddest vehicles in the land battling it out in drag and roll racing action. Have a gander for yourself. Right out of the gate – we have some mad cap roll racing hits. These guys are wide open with lots of imports (as one might expect) and top speeds in the 160-mph zone. Then there’s the Pontiac that loses it entering the trap and goes all headlights-taillights-headlights-taillights but never hits either wall Read More

July 25th, 2018

Leather reclining seats, air conditioning, carpeted floors, and full door panels; sound like a luxury sports car? How about a full roll cage, drag radials, and 1,100hp? Now, that sounds like a race car. So, what is it? Is it a street car or a race car? Turns out that Louis Crower (Yep, that Crower) has built himself a very heavy (4,000-pound) Pontiac GTO that is the best of both worlds. It all begins with a KP Racing built LS3 engine.

Cash Days – Longhorns vs. Sooners

July 18th, 2018

Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners harbor a great deal of animosity towards one another. Whether it’s in the rodeo arena or on the football gridiron, inhabitants of the Lone Star State and those of the Sooner State just seem to try harder when they are competing against each other. Today the competition turns to street racing (in Mexico of course), where fourteen of the baddest street machines in the country have gathered for a single elimination tournament called Cash Days.
