Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

71-Year Old Takes Title at Texas Invitational

October 26th, 2016

They say that racing is a young man’s game and I must say that it has proven true over time. Nevertheless, “they” have never met King of the Streets veteran, 71-year old Bob Helms. You see, the thing is that nobody ever told Bob that he needed to move over for a younger butt to occupy the seat of his Underground Racing (UR) built Lamborghini and (I gotta’ believe) that if “they” did, Bob would tell them where to go. Bob has been racing King of the Streets events since 2011, without a win, so I absolutely love the fact Read More

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More
