Midwest Street Digs

May 17th, 2018

Like many of you, I love virtually all kinds of racing. With that said, there is a special place in my heart for dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally). This video treats us to a night of street digs featuring some of the baddest cars in the midwest. Whether you are a turbo guy, a nitrous dude, a naturally aspirated gal, or a supercharger man; there is a lot to like about this clip. With the chips drawn and the competitors set to tow the line, we have the turbocharged Fox Body Mustang (LS powered) known as Beater Read More

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Street Digs – ZL1 Camaro vs. Dodge Demon

May 9th, 2018

It seems like everything on four-wheels is lining up to take a run at the new  Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This video documents what takes place when the daddy of the Camaro line gets his opportunity to ‘cast out’ the Demon in a dig race. This is a 2017 version of the mighty ZL1 Camaro. This car has been treated to the full regimen of aftermarket bolt-ons. In factory trim, the ZL1 packs quite a punch. It starts with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that is capable of making 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Factory features like an all aluminum Read More

Coffeyville Street Drags – No Prep Falcon

May 8th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Coffeyville Street Drags in Coffeyville, Kansas. Competing in the Outlaw Class, our feature car is a vintage Ford Falcon with a cool wrap. Oh, wait a minute – my finger just fell into a rust hole – this ain’t a wrap. This body is actually rusty with a patina that belies its many decades behind the blue oval. So, the Ford Falcon belongs to Paul Witty who built this bad ride in his garage. He dragged it right out of a field and breathed new life into her by installing a 521 cubic-inch big Read More

Street Rolls – McLaren 570S vs. 2019 Corvette ZR1

April 25th, 2018

As the most capable Corvette to ever roll off the assembly line, the 2019 version of the ZR1 opens a door (of sorts) for performance enthusiasts. Finally, we can dare to dream of a day when a Chevrolet can compete with the much lauded McLaren 570S. That day is here my friend! You may recognize the kid as the driver of the extraordinary automobile that has been tearing up the Cecil County Dragway and documenting the damage. Today, he will put his ‘Vette up against a 570S in multiple street hits. These will be roll races from various speeds with Read More

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

Superbrawl of Street Racing – GT-R vs. Roush Panda

April 13th, 2018

This is the granddaddy of all roll racing videos. If you enjoy taking to the interstate (Mexico) with a whole herd of elite level street racers; you’ll love this video. There are so many street beasts in this clip that they had to hit the streets in groups. After a brief driver’s meeting the first pack went out.   The initial wave included a black Gen VI Shelby GT500 Mustang. It is running a professionally built engine with high performance cylinder heads and a camshaft upgrade, a Kenne Belle 3.2-liter supercharger, and E85 fuel. The combo is good for 800+hp. 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

Exotic Street Racing – Puerto Rico

March 31st, 2018

The fine and friendly folks of Puerto Rico really know how to do street racing. Sure, they are a nice bunch of competitors but the cars are nothing short of amazing! The initial contest is between a BMW M4 and a C7 Corvette Z06. The Beemer has a turbo upgrade, high performance exhaust, and heavy-duty, dual-disc clutch kit. It’s capable of putting down approximately 720hp. The Z06 has undergone a pulley upgrade with some high performance exhaust and it has been performance tuned. It is making 640hp (roughly).
