July 20th, 2019

Allow me to welcome you to Colorado Springs for the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2019. Today, a modified Dodge Challenger SRT Demon (1,100hp) will get a reality check.

7-Second Dodge Viper World Record Holder

July 4th, 2019

Bet you thought those Georgia rednecks from Vengeance Racing only wrenched on Chevy cars, huh? Well, get ready for an education. This snake holds numerous world records; mostly in the Viper category, naturally. It is adequately equipped with a stock (8.4-liter) engine block that has been reinforced. Stock? Reinforced? Who knows what it all means to a world record holder – all I know is that reinforced don’t sound stock. Neither does “big internals” but that’s their biscuit. I’ll let ‘em butter it however they like. Besides the built “stock” bottom end, there are a pair of massive turbochargers. I Read More

700-Miles In – Rocky Mountain Race Week – Day 3

June 21st, 2019

After a long day on the road yesterday, the racers are checking in at the Julesburg Drag Strip in Colorado. This is the oldest operating drag strip in the U.S. Bad news is that the weather is wet. Good news is that the rain is subsiding, and it has cooled things off a bit. Race cars like it cool. Racers are looking a little tattered 700-miles into this excursion. Nevertheless, there are some top-tier competitors gnashing on the bridle to get back on the track. There’s a stunning yellow Mustang that has undergone a terrible struggle. The alternator belt broke Read More

RUNDRTY – 1000HP TT 1961 Buick Skylark

March 29th, 2019

Make a mental note: This old Buick is not to be trifled with – unless you feel like losing. Sure, you see a big ol’ heavy Buick, with all that paint and chrome, and you think he is too heavy to get out of his own way. I can beat him easy, right? Not so fast! If you plan to make a drag racing campaign with a 1961 Buick Skylark, you have a few choices. All those involve making massive amounts of horsepower; without which you will roll through the trap at the approximate speed at which molasses pours. This Read More
