Midwest Street Digs

May 17th, 2018

Like many of you, I love virtually all kinds of racing. With that said, there is a special place in my heart for dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally). This video treats us to a night of street digs featuring some of the baddest cars in the midwest. Whether you are a turbo guy, a nitrous dude, a naturally aspirated gal, or a supercharger man; there is a lot to like about this clip. With the chips drawn and the competitors set to tow the line, we have the turbocharged Fox Body Mustang (LS powered) known as Beater Read More

7-Second Rotary Powered Mazda RX-7

May 15th, 2018

I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto – oh, wait a minute that’s exactly where we are – for No Prep Mayhem. With $20,000 on the line in this eighth-mile No Prep shootout, there are some of the baddest small and big tire cars in the land chomping at the bit to get on the track and get sorted out. Approximately sixty small tire vehicles and twenty big tire machines have showed up to claim their share of midwest bragging rights and cold hard cash. Hate Tank, The Luv, Flaco, and Amoris are all on hand to get their Read More

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R. In the first contest, it will do battle with a Cadillac CTS-V (nitrous equipped). The turbocharged import Read More

Street Digs – ZL1 Camaro vs. Dodge Demon

May 9th, 2018

It seems like everything on four-wheels is lining up to take a run at the new  Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This video documents what takes place when the daddy of the Camaro line gets his opportunity to ‘cast out’ the Demon in a dig race. This is a 2017 version of the mighty ZL1 Camaro. This car has been treated to the full regimen of aftermarket bolt-ons. In factory trim, the ZL1 packs quite a punch. It starts with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that is capable of making 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Factory features like an all aluminum Read More

Coffeyville Street Drags – No Prep Falcon

May 8th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Coffeyville Street Drags in Coffeyville, Kansas. Competing in the Outlaw Class, our feature car is a vintage Ford Falcon with a cool wrap. Oh, wait a minute – my finger just fell into a rust hole – this ain’t a wrap. This body is actually rusty with a patina that belies its many decades behind the blue oval. So, the Ford Falcon belongs to Paul Witty who built this bad ride in his garage. He dragged it right out of a field and breathed new life into her by installing a 521 cubic-inch big Read More

New Mexico Cash Days – Big Money Street Digs

April 24th, 2018

This is street (dig) racing at its best. It is coming at you from the desert of Mexico on a perfect night when some really bad cars were on hand. This is single elimination dig racing with the top four places finishing in the money. Don’t cut the light early. Don’t cross the center-line. Get from point A to point B before the guy in the other lane and you advance to the next round. Simple right? If it were everybody would be doing it. Here are some of the competitors:   A Nissan 300ZX (800whp) 3.0-liter V6 with a Read More

2019 Corvette ZR1 – Manual vs. Auto

April 19th, 2018

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has had tongues flapping and chins wagging since well before its physical release, several weeks ago. The excitement is well deserved. The 2019 ZR1 is the most capable Corvette mass-produced to date. It can produce an astounding 755hp and 715 lb.-ft. of torque (in stock trim) and it is equipped with some of the most advanced aerodynamic features ever seen on a production automobile. This article will compare several videos in an attempt to determine whether the ZR1 equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission is nearly a full-second quicker (in the quarter-mile) than the same Read More

Heavy Chevy – 1972 Yenko Nova

April 13th, 2018

Competing in the Limited Drag Radial (3,33o-pound minimum) Class, Justin Martin and friends are campaigning one of the most stunning muscle cars to ever roll through the bleach box.        The ride is a 1972 Yenko Nova with a billet big block Chevrolet engine. The engine is built by Pete Harrell of Harrell Engine & Dyno (HED) in Mooresville, North Carolina. A pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers cram copious amounts of dense air into the massive engine and a Holley fuel injection system keeps the giddy-up juice flowing. A Mark Micke (M&M) transmission handles the shifting duties. Today, you will Read More
