Corn Field Cash Days

June 21st, 2017

Being born and raised in an inner city environment and having the good sense to move out to the country, I know a little about both urban and rural life. One of those things that I know is that city dwellers and country folk both love a good street race. That’s why some big time street machines showed up for this corn-fed dig racing showdown between the furrows. The very whisper of Cash Days usually brings the competitors out in droves but the weather in Nebraska (Mexico) can be a little unforgiving. Traction is already at a premium on the Read More

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

New Half-Mile GT-R Top Speed Record

June 19th, 2017

Congratulations to Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing. They have (once again) carved themselves out a place in the history of speed. The venue for this prolific undertaking was the ShiftS3ctor/Revolution Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack in Colorado. Before the event began, Lucas English was heard to say that he would be pleased to surpass the previous top speed world record in the standing mile. That record was 252 mph. That was considered pretty optimistic since Pike’s Peak is only a half-mile course. The ETS GT-R is at the forefront of 1-mile, half-mile, and quarter-mile GT-R racing. These guys have Read More

New Lamborghini S – Test Track

June 16th, 2017

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More

Biggest Street Race Ever – Full Event

June 15th, 2017

This is undoubtedly the biggest illegal street race that I have ever seen and (I believe) the biggest to ever take place in the history of the world. It’s called Cash Days 2017. This hour-long clip comes to you from Dallas, Texas (Mexico) and features the best-of-the-best in 3-nights of street (dig) racing. Almost the entire crew from the Street Outlaws television series (Discovery Network) is on hand for this monumental event. The difference between this video and the series is the difference between daylight and dark. In the television series, the racers are running on a closed (private) drag Read More

200 MPH on the Autobahn – Ferrari 488

June 13th, 2017

Climb in and take a ride in a stunning Ferrari 488 as it zips through Germany and into France on the legendary Autobahn. As you probably already know, the Autobahn is a lovely network of highways with sections where speed has no meaning. Sure, there are recommended speed limits but no mandatory maximum speed. Most car enthusiasts have – at one time or another – dreamed of getting in a high performance sports car and tearing through the German countryside. I know that I certainly have. I can’t imagine a better car for the task than the Ferrari 488 (well, Read More

Dig Race – Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Nissan GT-R

June 13th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to see a dig race between two of the baddest exotic production automobiles in the world? What we have here is a $2.5-million French-built Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supper Sport going up against a $105K Japanese made Nissan GT-R. Yeah, I realize that the Nissan has undergone some pretty expensive modification but no more than another $100K (or so) worth. The mid-engine, all-wheel drive Veyron gained worldwide recognition when it claimed the title of world’s fastest production automobile a few years ago. It set a top speed record of 268 mph. Since then, there have been plenty of 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

McLaren 720S – Track Testing

June 6th, 2017

Join professional race driver Steve Sutcliffe as he puts this British beauty through its paces on a closed track. From the 650S family of cars, this is the car rumored to be quicker than the P1. After driving the car to the track on some rough public (Italian) streets, Steve is rendered speechless as he challenges the 720S around steep corners and deep curves. The acceleration is blinding, the steering crisp and clean, and the braking is precise and effortless. No wonder our wheel-man is left without words. The 720S is equipped with an all-new 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine Read More

Classic Impala – Twin Turbo Beast

June 6th, 2017

You might expect to see a straight 1962 Chevrolet Impala like this in a car show or making the cruise circuit on Saturday night – certainly not in No-Prep racing action. The owner of this prime piece of muscle car is hardly content to sit and be judged, to roll slow, or to ride stock. When asked about estimated power output, the owner would only say, “A lot.” He did divulge that the Chevy was running a Brodix, all-aluminum, big block, roller engine with a pair of 88-millimeter (45-pounds of boost) turbochargers. This is No-Prep racing – from several events Read More
