Cash Money Street Digs

December 7th, 2016

Welcome drag racing fans to the Colorado Cash Days. This is a 14-car, single elimination, dig racing tournament – coming at you loud and proud from the streets of Colorado, Mexico. Dig racing on the streets requires a unique balance between traction and power that is not demonstrated anywhere else in the racing world. After 3-decades of racing on the streets (of Mexico), I am yet to find a 1/4-mile strip of highway that is as flat as the average drag strip. Sure, concrete streets can provide substantial traction but those seams feel like speed humps with some 10.5-inch tires Read More

Interstate Assault – 3-Wide Roll Racing

December 3rd, 2016

Here we have a heavy dose of fast-paced roll racing action between some spirited competitors. To those of us who know what it feels like to bust our hump in a 50-hour-a-week gig and then pour our blood, sweat, and tears – not to mention our hard earned cash – into a car that we just want to go faster; there’s something magical about rolling down the highway under the cover of darkness knowing that our ride is running at peak efficiency. As the cool night air pours over my finely tuned V8, I know that miraculous things are about Read More

KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

1180WHP Shelby GT500 – Road Test and Dyno

November 17th, 2016

Buckle up Mustang fans. This one is for you. You might say that this is some serious horsepower for a street car and I’d have to agree – Serious Autosport, that is. The South Florida based high performance parts supplier and car enthusiasts dream prepared this 2013 Ford to dominate the street or strip. It has the ponies to tackle the 1/4-mile and the suspension to handle the curves. The car is running an NPR built, sleeved long block with 2-inch American racing headers and Borla exhaust. Forced air induction is handled using a giant 4.5-liter Whipple supercharger. It not Read More

Dirty Bird – 2600HP Ford Falcon

November 17th, 2016

Say hello to Jason Wade and his 1968 Ford Falcon. This highly modified Falcon is running in the 275 Outlaw Class, weighs 3,250-pounds, and has a Rick Jones four-link rear suspension under it. The blacked out beast is powered by a 449 cubic-inch small block Ford engine with a pair of 88-millimeter turbochargers. The transmission is a Rossler 2-speed. The combination manages to irk out 2,600hp and is capable of consistent 4-second 1/8-mile passes in the 160 mph range. Tonight’s action is taking place at the North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas. Jason and friends have made the trip from Read More

Texas Grim Reaper at Outlaw Armageddon

November 16th, 2016

At an event called Outlaw Armageddon, one might think that a car named the Texas Grim Reaper would have the home track advantage. Well, advantage or not, one look at this murderer’s row of a field and I can tell that making it through the first round – let alone through the final round – is going to be a major undertaking. Regardless of the competition, Steve Wiley and his Texas Grim Reaper team didn’t show up at Thunder Valley Raceway Park (in Noble, Oklahoma) to play tidily-winks. They are only interested in marbles – all the marbles that is – Read More

Five-Second Twin Turbo Fox Body

November 13th, 2016

It’s raining fives! You don’t want to miss this video depiction of the Fiscus/Klugger TT Mustang becoming the first radial tire equipped car to dip into 5-second territory (5.92-seconds @ 249 mph) in the 1/4-mile. As if that wasn’t good enough, the Fiscus/Klugger Team continued to rain down 5-second passes (in the 240+ mph range) throughout the weekend on the way to stealing the show and taking home the $20,000 in prize money at the Haltech World Cup Finals. This Fox Body Mustang weighs in at a svelte 3,100-pounds and is well heeled with a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers Read More

Mopar Madness

November 9th, 2016

When you hear the word “madness’ you may tend to associate it with insanity but in this instance, I want you to relate it to anger. Why? Because Mopar fanatics get staggering mad when they look between the fenders of this late model Dodge Challenger and find a big old Chevrolet engine producing the ponies. That’s right HEMI-heads; this 2-ton behemoth is propelled by a 427 cubic-inch LSX engine that is being force fed copious amounts of air by a Precision 106-millimeter turbocharger. Shifting duties are being handled by a TH400 automatic transmission. This car was running consistent 8-second 1/4-mile Read More

Gangster TT HEMI Vette Goes 3.79 at 212 MPH

November 8th, 2016

Welcome race fans! Help yourself to an eyeful of the Alepa C7 Corvette as it attempts to take flight using a dragstrip as a runway. Meet Daniel Pharris, driver of this 3,500hp beast, and come along as he campaigns this drastically modified Chevrolet during two weekends of 1/8-mile drag racing action; making regular passes in the 3.8-second range at well over 200 mph. I almost never see a car that consistently goes airborne while not only remaining competitive but qualifying near the top. That is exactly what onlookers were treated to during two separate (and I do mean separate) events; Read More

Blue Devil ZR1 Menacing the Streets

November 5th, 2016

I have said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, if you love fast cars then you’ll like this video and if you love Corvettes then you will love it. This particular Corvette is at the top of the food chain, as far a ‘Vettes go. It is the iconic ZR1 – also called the Blue Devil. The C6 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is well equipped from the factory with an LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that makes 638hp and 595 lb.-ft. of torque. Top speed is an electronically controlled 205 mph. It also has a six-speed, race hardened, close ratio, Read More
