Corvette Crazy – Insane Street Hits

November 14th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a well organized night of roll racing action on the streets (of Mexico – obviously). This group of competitors is serious about roll racing and it shows in their machinery. The action kicks-off with a little red Corvette (baby you’re much too fast … but I digress …) Z06 that’s packing 434 cubic-inches of LS motor with a 250 shot of nitrous. It is rubbing door handles with a Blue C6 ‘Vette. The blue Chevy  has a 7.0- liter LSX engine with an F1A Procharger. These two cars make multiple passes with the blue Read More

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

November 8th, 2017

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

840HP Charger Hellcat – Street Rolls

October 1st, 2017

When the camera car is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, it is a good indication that the video contains some elite level street (roll) racing action. That was certainly the case during this night of street racing down in Houston (Mexico). There is a whole bevy of amazing street cars in this clip. After a short show-and-tell session, the competitors take to the highway where the action gets started. A 1,200whp Pontiac Trans Am Formula (6.0-liter engine, LS3 cylinder heads, and an 88-millimeter turbocharger) gets spanked by the camera car (1,300hp Boost Logic GT-R). Both these cars chew up blacktop like Read More

Turbo Chevy Pickups Take to the Streets

September 29th, 2017

Just in case you were wondering what good ol’ boys do on Saturday night… How about bolting a big old turbocharger to your ruggedly dependable Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and taking to the highway (after a brief meet and greet at the Auto Zone in Mexico) for some roll racing? These guys are serious competitors and they ain’t backing down from nobody. The first Chevy (we’ll call it Gray), rolls out against a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with a full accoutrement of aftermarket bolt-ons and a camshaft upgrade. We are talking about the top-tier Corvette. It seems like the ZR1 has the Read More

LS – Street – Fest 2017

September 26th, 2017

Annually, the Holley LS Fest East brings out some of the baddest LS powered (and LS spoiler) street machines on the East Coast. They spend the daylight hours at the track; generally behaving cordially and showing some degree of distinguished restraint. So, how do you suppose these rambunctious hooligans (myself included) entertain themselves when the lights go down and the gates are locked at the drag strip? They hit the streets (of Mexico – of course) for some high-spirited roll racing action. Peel your eyeballs and have a look for yourself. The general rule of the day is 60 mph Read More

12-Wide Airstrip Drag Race

September 23rd, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to what is being billed as the World’s Greatest Drag Race 7. This epic contest of acceleration and speed is being held at Vandenberg Air Force Base – home of the 30th Space Wing of Air Force Space Command. Extreme speed is no stranger to this base or these fighting men. They test rockets on a daily basis. The rockets being tested today will include the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Aston Martin DB11, the 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, the underpowered Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, the pricey Ferrari 488 GTB, the Lexus LC500, the Read More

Hot Rod Drag Week – Final Day

September 20th, 2017

It’s all over too quickly – for fans and spectators, that is. Hot Rod Drag Week 2017 is coming to a close and the weary competitors are eager to get to the final track (Cordova International Raceway) after their 1,000 excursion. Traditionally, the final day of Drag Week means that racers and crews can put more power to the pavement (not that they haven’t already been pushing the envelope). All week long they have been trying to save their machines because they must be driven between each venue. The final day yields a little less worry because broken cars can Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More
