2200HP Camaro Takes 1300-Mile Road Trip

July 20th, 2016

Feel like a 1,300-mile road trip? How about in a turbo car that is pushing over 2,000hp? Now, try it with four-rounds of drag racing along the way? That’s exactly what Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016 entails for Doug Cline and his awesome orange 1969 Chevy Camaro. This car is in every way a street car – that is capable of posting 1/4-mile passes that dip into the 6-second range (over 200 mph). It is equipped with a 598 cubic-inch big block Chevy engine and a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers. Ride along as this journey winds through the Colorado Read More

Classic Camaro Posts New WR for Eighth-Mile

July 19th, 2016

Dewayne Mills in his Golden Gorilla Camaro has just established a new personal best and a world record for turbocharged cars on radial tires – in the 1/8-mile. This footage was shot during the Rage by the River Event; during the semi-finals and finals. The latter of which featured a $7,500 cash prize. After an outstanding weekend of racing, Dewayne and the boys find themselves running solo in the semi-final round. They proceed to post an eye-catching 3.79-second pass at 206.45 mph; that’s good enough to take the world record and move on to the finals. Check out the action Read More

Thunderous TT Chevy II Runs 7-Second Quarter-Mile

July 15th, 2016

Meet Larry Larson and his 1966 Chevy II Nova. This car holds the prestigious honor of being named the fastest street car in the world, for three years consecutively. Larson Race Cars has built dozens of top-tier drag cars and trucks but it seems like they always save the best for themselves – who can blame ‘em? Running in the Comp Eliminator (AA/AT) Class at Drag Week 2016, this Chevy is packing a Larson (Mike Moran) built 565-cubic inch big block with a set of 88-millimeter turbochargers. The Larson team manages a 7.17-second pass at 179 mph on this day but the Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week – Blown Mustang

July 11th, 2016

In the epitome of “run what ya’ brung” racing, these teams (sometimes teams of one) are asked to compete in an event that encompasses 4 races in five days; on a 1,300-mile road trip. These teams begin with a full night of racing in Kearney, Nebraska before heading out to the next drag strip in Denver, Colorado (many drag cars with a trailer in tow). After Denver, these guys will move on to Pueblo, Colorado before turning around and driving back to Kearney, with a short stop in Great Bend, Kansas at the S.R.C.A. Dragstrip. Don’t miss Larry Larson in his twin Read More

3000HP Ego Mustang

July 5th, 2016

This crew has recently made the swap from a Fox Body to a New Edge Mustang. Among the things that have remained the same is the big block Chevrolet engine that is helping to lay down an astronomical amount of horsepower. Despite the capacity for making approximately 3,000hp, this New Edge ‘Stang is running in the small tire class at No Prep No Excuses – and making no excuses. The engine is a Pro Line 548 cubic-inch number with a pair of 94-millimeter turbochargers.  The transmission is a Power Glide and the car seems to be getting hooked up fairly Read More

Nasty 1650HP Blown Cutlass

July 1st, 2016

This ain’t yo’ grandaddy’s Oldsmobile! Black Beauty is running in the small tire (275) class with that big ol’ blower poking outta the hood. This Cutlass looks great and sounds even better. The driver has a few problems coming out of the hole but comes back strong when he gets the car headed in the right direction. Don’t worry driver, more passes will likely cure this disease. This bad girl is running a 516-cubic-inch Chevy engine with a Littlefield 1071 blower and it’s an alcohol burner. It’s got a three-piece Powerglide transmission with a PTC 10-inch ProMod converter and she’s Read More

Twin Turbo Chevy Powered Mustang

June 29th, 2016

You read it right – this great looking blue Ford Mustang Boss is now the CEO. After replacing the meager Ford mill with a massive 568-cubic-inch monster Chevrolet big block, this Mustang commands respect on any track. In addition to the built big block, this blue beauty has a pair of Garrett GT 4788 turbos and a 2-speed TH400 transmission. Running 26-inch tires, in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets (Chicago), this Ford made its way all the way from Arkansas despite losing a back glass in the previous weekend’s racing. He takes out a pair of Mustangs Read More

Single Elimination Street Racing

June 27th, 2016

Take a gander at some old school, single elimination-style street racing, on a deserted 2-lane country road (the bales of hay were my only clue). The preliminary round features a Corvette and a first-generation Mustang. The potent Ford gets the hole-shot but can’t seem to get hooked up on the gear changes. The ‘Vette claims the victory and moves on. Next, we have a Cadillac CTS-V vs. a GenV Mustang. The Caddy pulls the Ford throughout and takes a first round win. Now, we’re on to a contest between a nitrous C6 Corvette and a nitrous Fox body Mustang – Read More

No Prep Gangster – Fox Body Mustang

June 22nd, 2016

You have probably heard of Boosted Solutions (out of Chestertown, Indiana). They campaign The Fugitive. It is a 3,500hp Chevy powered Mustang that kills at major No Prep events. This video brings us the newest project that the guys at Boosted Solutions are campaigning in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets in Chicago. No Prep is the hottest ticket in drag racing right now. This Fox Body Mustang is equipped with a 118-millimeter turbocharger. It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Old School Turbo Nova

June 21st, 2016

This clip shows us a classic battle between a Gen III Nova and a late model Corvette Z06. Besting a Z06 in the 1/4-mile is a monumental task for any overweight muscle car and serious bolt-on modifications (to the ‘Vette) just serve to make matters worse. To even up the competition, the ’73 Nova is equipped with a late model Chevy LS engine and a turbocharger. It looks awesome with that low slung stance that is so typical of this era of Novas. It also has a full roll cage and a TH400 automatic transmission. There’s another close race between the Read More
