This year, the 1,000-mile event begins at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia with more than 400 street cars; ready to prove they have what it takes to make the lengthy trip and race on four drag strips in five days. After a full Read More

Welcome fellow street racers to Mexico for a night of elite level roll racing on the interstate. On hand are some of the most sophisticated (FAST!) street racing machines on the planet.

Hold onto your hat as these two hit the highway. In the first pass, the ‘Vette encounters traffic and the Mustang takes the win. Pass number Read More

All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More

Real Street Racing – South Georgia Cash Days

August 28th, 2018

Yep, this is South Georgia (Mexico) alright. The dragstrip is no wider than a pig trail. There are more pickups entered in the cash days than cars. There’s a PT Cruiser running a 350hp shot of nitrous and if Colonel Sanders stepped out of the bushes (which are very close to the pavement) with a bucket of chicken, no one would be surprised. Right off the trailer, we got a heavily modified Nissan 300z against a V8 Chevy S10 pickup. Both racers leave the line clean but the S10 drags the import for the win. Race two of round one; Read More

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

Turbo Fox Body – 7-Second Small Tire Monster

August 17th, 2018

Power is estimated to be in the 1,600hp range and the car posted a 7.94-second elapsed time @ 182.43 Read More

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
