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

$25K No-Prep – Blown Chevy S10

April 11th, 2018

With no electronic timing and surface conditions that mimic those of public streets, No-Prep Drag Racing has quickly become the hottest ticket in town. This video takes us out to Bounty Hunters III No-Prep Grudge Nationals where some of the baddest street cars in the nation are gathered to see who can claim bragging rights and a big stack of cash. One of the competitors in the top tier Big Tire Class is Steve Wiley and his supercharged Chevrolet S10 pickup. Despite having a steel roof and quarter panels, this is a full-on race truck. It features a tubular chassis Read More

Corvette King – 2010 ZR1 vs 2019 ZR1

April 5th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Cecil County Dragway for an epic battle between two variants of the big, bad ZR1 ‘Vette. We are all looking forward to seeing what these bad bowties can do but the staging lanes are packed with awesome cars of virtually every variety. There is a bad looking vintage Mopar, a Porsche, numerous Mustangs (of all types), and even a McLaren. All that is in addition to the feature race between these two Chevys.   The star of the show is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. As far as we can tell, this Read More

All You Need is Love – Nitrous Burning Chevy Luv

April 3rd, 2018

Few things put a bigger smile on the face of a drag racer than the sight of a compact, rear-wheel drive vehicle with a massive V8 crammed under the hood. What makes it even better? When there is a bed on the back so you can haul all your stuff. Love was in the air as Kyle Buckmaster showed up to the Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals III with his menacing Chevrolet Luv pickup. At the risk of outing myself as an old guy, I’ll tell you that these trucks were plentiful in my hey-day. A fellow couldn’t sling a Read More

9-Second Camaro – Dual Power Adders

March 23rd, 2018

So, what’s a racer to do about that pesky turbo (supercharger) lag? After all, few things are more irritating than dropping the hammer and coming out of the hole like a slug; especially when you have sunk a ton of dough in a turbo or supercharger. There are ways to squash that lag and turn your sled into a rocket. If you are a turbo guy (or girl), you can add a second smaller (lower RPM) turbo. That’ll kick your tail out of the hole like scalded dog but it is pricey and can propose space challenges. A more efficient Read More

MK3 Supra vs. Mustang and Vette – Street Hits

March 23rd, 2018

It is the holy grail of proud and loyal Toyota followers. It is the ghostly presence that slips quickly and quietly from the mist of a child’s (Toyota) dreams before they decide to become an import street racer. It’s the third generation MK3 Toyota Supra. The one in this video features a heavily modified Toyota 2JZ 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. The engine is built and topped with a Precision 6766 turbocharger. Tonight the mystical creature of Toyota lore will be taking on some worthy opponents. Let’s take a look and see how it fares. The first test for the Supra Read More

Georgia vs. Florida – Cash Days

March 22nd, 2018

Buckle up racing fans; there’s no room for error in this one. These lanes are narrow and there is zero space on either side. Racing will be of the dig variety and it is single elimination. The rules are simple; don’t jump the light and don’t be first to cross the center-line. If you can accomplish those two things and cross the finish line before your opponent, you move on to the next round. After that, just be the last car to win a round (finals) and walk away with a fist full of cash. Easy right? This contest is Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

Classic Mustang is Crazy Fast!

March 2nd, 2018

Grandpa’s first car was a ‘65 Ford Mustang. He got it when he was just sixteen. When it wasn’t fast enough anymore, he pulled out the small block and crammed in an all-aluminum 7.0-liter Dart Racing engine (10.5:1 compression ratio). Throw in a 250hp shot of nitrous and what he has is a 9-second show car that looks as good at the drive-in on Saturday night as it runs on the drag strip on Sunday afternoon. Seriously, this car is a real head turner. Every body panel is steel and it has been worked to perfection. The color choice is Read More

The King – 2000HP Fox Body Mustang

March 2nd, 2018

Calling himself the King of NO PREP Racing, this Fox Body Mustang posts consistent 8-second elapsed times in the 160 – 170 mph range. This is an all-steel bodied car (except for the hood which blew off during filming) with a massive 540 cubic-inch Chevrolet engine and a Precision 118-millimeter turbocharger (30 psi of boost). Competing in the Street Racer Class, the Wyoming Performance crew has the King churning at peak efficiency as it lines up for a first round matchup. In the right lane, we have a super clean, black,  turbo Fox Body. The black car gets the hole Read More
