Baddest Pickups on the Planet: HPT Shootout 2015

July 2nd, 2015

Can you imagine turning out a 6.5-second quarter mile at 229 mph in a farm truck? What about busting 100 mph in the eighth mile with your camper shell door opening and slamming all the way? Well, that is just what this rowdy bunch of speed junkies live for. They are gathered here, at the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas, to prove that they have the baddest pickup trucks on the planet. It is Ford against Chevrolet, old against new, and full-size against compact, as these skilled race teams put it all n the line and let it all Read More

Street Racing: Corvette Chaos

July 1st, 2015

Who brings their car to a street race on a trailer? Someone who has come from one state away to take your cookies – that’s who. This video brings you a couple of highly modified late model (a 2001 and a 2009 model) Corvettes as they square off on the streets in an epic battle of supercharger versus nitrous. The “out-of-towner” sports a 2009 Corvette Z06 with a built 408-cubic-inch LSX engine, a YSI Vortech supercharger set at 18psi, and an EFI 128 tuner. It is running E98 fuel and riding on Mickey Thompson E/T rubber wrapped around 15-inch Weld Read More

Street Racing: 1951 Chevy Business Coupe

June 22nd, 2015

You have to deal with all kinds of business in this life. There is good business, bad business, dirty business, serious business – there is even monkey business – but this New Mexico based street racer is all about a different kind of business. This portly looking old car is inspired by the BEATER BOMB, but it looks one heckuva’ lot better. With the appearance of a classic cruiser and the launch of a pro-stock dragster, this ’51 Chevrolet Business Coupe is a genuine street sleeper. This ride is from an era when bumpers were made of chromed steel and Read More

Late Model Corvette Street Racing

June 3rd, 2015

It is a Corvette-fest down south of the border, in the sunny Mexico Racing League. Watch as these late model Z06s, ZR1s, and GSs do battle on the streets of Old Mexico (Yeah). The order of the day is rolling starts and awesome horsepower as these drivers “let it all hang out” displaying monstrous cubic inches, heavy-breathing superchargers, and volatile nitrous oxide injections. Your ride-along car is a Yellow, late model, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, known as “The Banana”. Despite packing a huge punch (650HP) in factory trim, this ‘Vette is equipped with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft, a Magnuson heat Read More

Street Racing: NOS/Supercharged Camaro ZL1 vs. Viper T/A

May 29th, 2015

Check out this contest of speed that begins as a 60 mph rolling race and morphs into a Snake show. With advertised horsepower ratings being a little “flexible” where street racers are concerned, it should come as no surprise when a 632HP car overcomes a 750HP car on an apparently deserted stretch of highway. That is the case in this video from That Racing Channel. The Camaro appears to gain the early edge but the Viper is having none of it; coming back to take the victory in the end. We neither condone or encourage racing on public streets. The Read More

1,000HP Air Force Won Mustang Wins Three Consecutive No Prep Events

May 25th, 2015

If you want to see some good head-to-head racing action, without all of the lights and timers, then you want to see some “No Prep” drag racing. This is just two cars, two drivers, two pit crews, and a quarter-mile of straight, flat blacktop. It seems that owner/driver Shayne Ward and the Air Force Won team have found the groove in the “small tire” class, winning three major 2015 events in a row (Kansas Dragway, Northstar Dragway, and Texas Dragway). A Morgan & Sons small-block (388 c.i.d.) Ford racing engine, Powerglide transmission, and Ford 8.8-inch rear differential all combine to Read More

Super Diesel Dyno and Drag Racing

May 14th, 2015

The Super Diesel Shootout, presented by Shell, features some of the most powerful diesel powered light-duty trucks on the planet. There is even a diesel powered top fuel dragster. The Overkill single-cab Chevrolet Silverado in this video not only made a 9.47-second pass @ 145.37 mph but also posted a high-water mark of 1,700-horsepower and 2,500 lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno – that’s right, 2,500.

Ultra Street Coverage Sub 5-Second 1/8-Mile

May 5th, 2015

Take a look at this video that features tons of early/late model matchups (as well as lots of GM/Ford matchups) in some close heads-up racing. There is even an early/late model GTO battle at the onset. The footage was obtained during last weekend’s Street Car Shootout at the Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. The class is Ultra Street and the cars are outstanding. Ronnie Rhodes is on hand in his small block powered (with nitrous) ’68 Camaro. When the afternoon sun gets hot, he lays down a 4.95 @ 141.89 mph, and it appears that he will outclass Read More

Outlaw Street Car Reunion 2 Memphis Madness

April 16th, 2015

The Outlaw Street Car Reunion 2 X275 Eliminations from the Memphis International Raceway yielded this awesome clip that includes representatives of virtually every domestic auto manufacturer in head-to-head action. Instead of the Outlaw Street Car Reunion, this looks more like the Mustang Fox Body reunion. There must have been 20-high quality Fox bodies in attendance at this 1/8-mile event. Of course, there are also some fast moving Chevrolets from various eras, as well. There is even a fantastic looking Burnt Orange Mopar in the form of a late model retro-Challenger. It posts a 4.67-second pass at 155.79 mph. Most of Read More

Father & Son Campaign Small Block Nitrous Camaros

April 14th, 2015

Ron and Ronny Rhodes, from Townsend, Delaware, are turning heads with their 1968 Camaros. Take a look at the video as Ronny posts a 4.48-second 1/8-mile at 155 mph and “the Kid” lays down a 4.95-second pass at 141.68 mph. Ron’s cherry red ’68 Camaro RS is “loaded for bear” with a 414-cid Dart Racing Engine. It incorporates a Callies crank, GRP rods, Ross pistons, and a Competition Cams camshaft. The cylinder heads are RHS, the intake manifold is made by Dart, and the exhaust gases are pushed out through Hedman exhaust headers. A Pro Systems carburetor handles the go-go Read More
