Hot Rod Drag Week – Final Day

September 20th, 2017

It’s all over too quickly – for fans and spectators, that is. Hot Rod Drag Week 2017 is coming to a close and the weary competitors are eager to get to the final track (Cordova International Raceway) after their 1,000 excursion. Traditionally, the final day of Drag Week means that racers and crews can put more power to the pavement (not that they haven’t already been pushing the envelope). All week long they have been trying to save their machines because they must be driven between each venue. The final day yields a little less worry because broken cars can Read More

Hot Rod Drag Week 2017

September 12th, 2017

Greetings fellow speed enthusiasts – it is once again time for that grueling pilgrimage known as Hot Rod Drag Week. This event is one of the most demanding for competitors and cars alike. It requires that race teams drive their street cars over 1,000-miles; racing at four different tracks over a five-day period. There is just not another event where you can see elite level street and strip cars pulling travel trailers and racking up highway miles before lining up to take on the quarter-mile in earnest. There are a wide variety of cars on hand – from all over Read More

Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More

1500HP Procharged Duster

August 25th, 2017

It’s impossible to catch a ghost. Scientist and paranormal experts have tried for years to capture any form of ghost but – up until now – no ghost! This aptly named (The Ghost) 1972 Plymouth Duster also proved very elusive at the NEAD No Prep Throwdown in Oskaloosa, Iowa. With a 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine and an F2 Procharger, it might do you well to be scared of this Ghost. Despite making approximately 1,500hp (on 21-pounds of boost), the Ghost is still riding on stock suspension (front and rear). A TorqueFlite 727 transmission transfers all that power to the rear Read More

No Replacement for Displacement – Turbo Viper GTS

August 25th, 2017

Greetings roll racing fans! Please accompany us as we take a trip down south of the border (Mexico) for some street rolls. In an effort to prove that there truly is no replacement for displacement, a Dodge Viper (with its massive 8.4-liter mill) will take on a twin turbocharged Porsche 997 Turbo and a Ford Mustang with a Coyote engine and a Whipple supercharger. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes at various speeds with some great camera angles. The footage is dramatic and the audio is truly amazing. These cars are skillfully modified and Read More

Classic Style – Supercar Performance

August 10th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is loaded with everything it takes to make it look vintage and run better than new! Thee-years in the making, there is not a single inch of this muscle car that has not been upgraded. From the electric door entry handles to the custom fabricated stainless-steel dash to the aluminum console to the space-age instrumentation and navigation to the front and rear camera systems, everything inside this car reeks of innovation. The hand-crafted seats are awesome, too. This is not your average old clumsy Chevelle either. Despite having race-ready suspension from Detroit Speed, the Read More

1500HP TT Silverado Terrorizes the Streets

August 3rd, 2017

Despite the fact that they often have problems getting hooked-up, I dearly love fast pickup trucks. Another thing that I hold near and dear is street racing down the (Mexico) interstate on a warm summer night. As much as I love dig racing – there are times when I just need to cut loose and feel the wind in what’s left of my hair. This video combines these two things; pickup trucks and roll racing down the interstate on a warm summer night. Add some sophisticated GoPro camera equipment and multiple camera angles and you end up with a top-quality Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

It’s Grrrreat! V8 Sunbeam Tiger

June 30th, 2017

Tony the Tiger it ain’t – this tiny British made coupe is rarer than hen’s teeth. The RG Sunbeam Alpine Roadster was produced by the Roole’s Group from 1964 until 1967. In the mold of the popular AC Cobra, some Sunbeam models were brought to the U.S. where Carroll Shelby put his mark on the line and gave them the moniker Sunbeam Tiger. Later, RG opted to move production back to the U.K. and just give Shelby a piece of the profits. Unlike the Sunbeam Alpine, the Tiger was outfitted with either a 260 cubic-inch or a 289 cubic-inch Ford Read More

King of the Streets – Grinch Mustang

June 28th, 2017

The Grinch certainly wasn’t the shiniest car at King of the Streets (KOTS) Chicago – it wasn’t even the prettiest car in the Gangster Class. Fortunately for the Grinch crew, it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. What the Grinch has under the hood is a borrowed (big thanks to Corn Dog!) big block and a few kits of nitrous. Power is estimated to be in the 1,200hp range. After winning the Gangster Class at KOTS in 2016, and struggling all week to supplant their hurt motor with the borrowed big block mill, it would Read More
