Twin Turbo Chevy S10 – No Prep Mayhem

April 19th, 2016

Striving for traction and track position are some of the hurdles that No-Prep racers must clear. With no track prep, no electronic timers, and no excuses – No Prep Racing is an ‘old school’ racing concept that is garnering a humongous following among enthusiasts of all ages. If you enjoy highly-competitive, head-to-head drag racing with limited classifications, then No Prep is right for you. This S10 (called Cornfed 2.0 and equipped with a twin-turbocharged LSX engine) runs in one of the two classifications of most No Prep events – Small Tire. Today the Small Tire class is burgeoning with competition Read More

You may be familiar with the bright red ’55 1.0 Chevrolet No Prep machine. Now, check out the new and improved version ’55 2.0.

Street Racing – Blown BMW M3 vs. Mustangs

April 14th, 2016

Three wide street racing on the streets of ‘Old Mexico’ has got to be pretty rare but throw in a supercharged BMW and you are approaching unicorn status. The Beamer locks horns with a Ford Mustang GT500 in the first heat and fares surprisingly well. Next, you have the M3, the GT500, and a blown Mustang Boss in 3-wide action. Take a look for yourself! The BMW is sporting a VF Engineering 650 Kit that gets him up around 650hp. The GT500 comes from the factory with a supercharger and a performance exhaust, a cold-air intake, and other various aftermarket Read More

Mustang Cobra Attempts Takeoff

April 5th, 2016

This great looking Mustang Cobra nearly does airborne from the right lane during TX2K16 in Houston, Texas. The Medusa Cobra is campaigned by Voodoo Racing Innovations out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Voodoo specializes in turbocharged Ford projects but they are capable of wrenching anything. Despite several near catastrophic passes, Medusa manages to put down an 8.6-second pass at 162.8 mph. The Medusa’s engine block is a Ford DOHC 4.6-liter punched out to 5-liters with a set of Ford GT Supercar cylinder heads and an 88-millimeter turbocharger (running 27-pounds of boost). The combination is good for approximately 1,100hp and that is being Read More

260 MPH COPO Camaro Texas Mile Car

March 30th, 2016

Take a gander at this awesome Texas Mile Car built as a collaborative effort by the crew at Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) and Brink Racecraft. When a race car project begins with a brand-new COPO Camaro, it is usually going to morph into something amazing. This project certainly makes the grade. Add a massive 632-cubic-inch NRE big block, a pair of NRE Mirror Image 88-millimeter turbochargers, an NRE Alien intake manifold, and you have an elite level Texas Mile monster. This Chevy also has an intricate dry-sump oiling system with the reservoir in the trunk, dual fuel supply systems, and Read More

The Janitor ’68 No Prep Camaro

March 25th, 2016

The ‘Janitor’ is an awesome looking 1968 Camaro that has undergone some upgrades for the upcoming season. The nitrous oxide injection system is out and a massive 106-millimeter turbocharger has been added instead. The worn out old small block is on the scrap heap and a fresh (Torrez Performance built) 406-cubic-inch mill with 23-degree cylinder heads has taken its place. This is a No Prep event and the Janitor is running in the small tire class. With only 15-pounds of boost applied this muscle car pulled the front up nicely and got through the 1320 in fine fashion. I am Read More

Arizona Street Racing

March 15th, 2016

This is 1/4-mile street racing Arizona style – fast paced, organized, and competitive. This contest is of the ‘run-what-you-brung’ single elimination variety with no classifications. Who ever shows up with the best setup and manages to get down the track ahead of the competition until the final round wins the money. Easy peazy lemon squeazy? Not in this field; check it out. In the first round you have a 2.3-liter supercharged Mustang eating up a Nissan GT-R with bolt-on modifications. Next there is a small block powered Chevrolet Monza with nitrous that surprisingly smokes a Corvette ZR-1 and a Fox Read More

706 CID Nitrous Nova at Conquer the Concrete

March 7th, 2016

The ‘Honey Badger’ Nova seems to be suffering from a case of mistaken identity. If you understand that a honey badger is small and nimble and it relies on its wits to get by and this Nova is big, heavy, and extremely powerful, then you get my point. This 706-cubic-inch all steel (except for the hood and deck lid) bodied Chevy is more bull than badger. The focal point of the Badger is a Troy Scott Racing engine running two nitrous kits. This street legal beast showed up at Conquer the Concrete in Oklahoma City ready to take down the Read More

Lucifer Mustang Conquers the Concrete

March 3rd, 2016

Despite its horrifying name, this Fox Body Mustang might have died-in-the-wool Ford aficionados dancing in the streets. There is no LS engine here. It’s a good old big block Ford mill with a pair of four-barrel throttle bodies nestled beautifully on top. This is unapologetically a nitrous driven devil of a car. Due to the poor track conditions, the crew was only administering a 400hp shot of laughing gas but in premium track conditions Lucifer has handled a 900hp shot. This is No Prep racing from “Conquer the Concrete” in Noble, Oklahoma. For this event, all the rubber compound and Read More
