Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

First Look – Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

March 7th, 2017

What? No 2018 Camaro Z28? What will we do? How will Chevy enthusiasts survive? Very well indeed, I presume. Allow me to attempt an explanation as General Motors has provided. There has been no sign of a Z28 version of the Camaro for 2018 because the ZL1 ILE will fill its spot in this year’s lineup. Does this mean that the Z28 is gone for good? Absolutely not, according to sources inside GM. So, why can’t the ZL1 1LE simply be adorned with the Z28 badge? In a word: history. You see, the Z28 Camaro has always been a naturally Read More

Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017

If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night Read More

Cash Money Street Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Tesla P100DL+

January 30th, 2017

This video uses multiple GoPro angles to showcase the astonishing Tesla P100DL+ (signifying a P100D in Ludicrous Plus mode). The action begins with unloading the P100D from a roll back wrecker for a contest of speed called a dig race. Believe it or not, one of the baddest Chevrolets in production is asking for a head start. Even more surprising – he gets it. The Tesla is spotting him the break plus one car length because, despite packing a 650hp supercharged 6.2-liter engine with an upper pulley upgrade, the Camaro is the dramatic underdog. That means that the Chevy will Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

Mad About Street Racing – Import vs. Domestic

November 29th, 2016

The time tested rivalry between imports and domestics rages violently on the streets of Mexico. This video brings us a bevy of radically modified street cars (and a couple of high-performance street bikes) gathering to compete in a contest of intellect, guts, and speed. You guessed it – it’s roll racing with multiple Go Pro setups providing tons of camera angles to make it feel like you are in the passenger seat. There’s a (1,100hp) Mustang Shelby GT500, with a 4.6-liter Whipple supercharger, that I have been anxiously waiting to see in competition rolling out against Lil’ Red; a DSM Read More

WANNAGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout

October 14th, 2016

Howdy racing fans and welcome to Heaven’s Landing in Clayton, Georgia for the wannaGOFAST Georgia 1/2-Mile Shootout. On hand are some of the baddest street cars on the planet; ready to lock horns in head-to-head 1/2-mile dig racing action to top speed. Over 3,000 spectators and 135 competitors came out to give it all they had in what proved to be a monumental undertaking. On Saturday, the top speed of the day was 218.77 mph. On Sunday, Sal Patel posted a new track and World Rear-Wheel Drive record of 224.55 mph in his beast of a Dodge Viper. Check it Read More

Twin Turbo 7-Liter Camaro Wins 2016 Hot Rod Drag Week

September 28th, 2016

Check out this clip of Clark Rosenstengel and his GenV Camaro. He lays down a 7.80 1/4-mile pass at 170 mph in a car that still has factory air conditioning. If that isn’t enough to prove this is a true street machine, it is also riding on radial tires (Mickey Thompsons). One might conclude that, with a Steve Morris built 427 cubic-inch LSX (that means Chevrolet) engine and a pair of sparkling stainless-steel Bullseye 80-millimeter turbochargers, this grueling week long event (Hot Rod Drag Week) would be a cake walk. Not so much; you see, Clark and the gang had Read More
