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

April 15th, 2016

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 and Strip – SRT Viper vs. Foxbody Mustang

April 12th, 2016

After a full day of roasting rubber at the drag strip, where it posted a best ET of 8.64-seconds @ 159.19 mph, this little Mustang is about to tangle with a radically modified Dodge SRT Viper on the streets. One would not expect a Ford to hang-in with a perfectly balanced performance machine in roll racing action. Check out the video. The outcome may surprise you. The Ford is making 1,100+hp using a 363-cubic-inch Dart Racing engine block, a set of precision built racing cylinder heads, an 83-millimeter turbocharger, and a heavy-duty automatic racing transmission. The Mopar manages to produce 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

March 24th, 2016

What’s that? You think snakes are slow because they have no legs? Well this snake doesn’t have a leg to stand on and gets down the track in good time. D3 Performance Engineering campaigns this Gen V Dodge Viper in the 1/4-mile and the car is posting some pretty impressive elapsed times, including a (Gen V World Record) 9.36-second pass @ 144 mph. D3 is squeezing over 900hp out of this Snake using a ProCharger F1X centrifugal supercharger on 15-pounds of boost. The Viper is also equipped with a generous supply of laughing gas, courtesy of Nitrous Express, but it Read More

No Prep – Shocker Camaro vs Mistress Nova

March 17th, 2016

Welcome to the Bounty Hunters No Prep Grudge Match from beautiful San Antonio Raceway. You are about to witness Discovery Channel star Kye Kelley taking on the infamous Mistress in 1/4-mile No Prep dig racing action. Numerous stars from the popular Street Outlaws series were on hand but there was no closer finish than this tight race. Kye brought this bad nitrous injected Camaro all the way from down in the Big Easy to knuckle-up against his co-stars and other competitors in good, clean, heads-up racing. The Mistress is a twin-turbocharged monster that seldom falls. Enough with the hype – 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

Big Baller Cobra Wins Redemption 4.0

March 14th, 2016

This is No Prep racing with some of the biggest names in the Midwest in attendance. The Big Baller Mustang rolled in ready to do battle during Redemption No Prep 4.0 down in Texas and ran into a proverbial buzz saw of competition. Kye Kelley, the Birdman, and Flaco (Skinny) in his twin turbocharged Chevrolet S10, known as ‘Corn Fed’ were all revved up and waiting to run. The Big Baller Cobra Mustang wears a tag plate that reads ‘Boost12’ because it’s boosted and on a scale of one-to-ten – it’s a twelve. It’s running a 380-cubic-inch small block Ford 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

Godzilla Takes Two Classes at Dallas Street Car Takeover

February 24th, 2016

Godzilla showed up at the Dallas Street Car Takeover and wreaked havoc in two-classes of racing action. While it wasn’t the giant mechanical monster that wrecked Tokyo, the results were no less catastrophic. Godzilla was manifest in the form of the familiar 1200hp T1 Nissan GT-R. By the time smoke cleared Lamborghinis, Supras, Cadillacs, Mustangs, and all other challengers were strewn about like so much rubbish (not really but you get the jest). With its all-wheel drivetrain, the GT-R demonstrated superior traction in winning the King of the Bakery (roll racing) crown and the 9.50 ET class. The team at Read More
