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

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). Let’s climb into the passenger seat of the M4 and take a Read More

9-Second Camaro – Dual Power Adders

March 23rd, 2018

So, what’s a racer to do about that pesky turbo (supercharger) lag? After all, few things are more irritating than dropping the hammer and coming out of the hole like a slug; especially when you have sunk a ton of dough in a turbo or supercharger. There are ways to squash that lag and turn your sled into a rocket. If you are a turbo guy (or girl), you can add a second smaller (lower RPM) turbo. That’ll kick your tail out of the hole like scalded dog but it is pricey and can propose space challenges. A more efficient Read More

Georgia vs. Florida – Cash Days

March 22nd, 2018

Buckle up racing fans; there’s no room for error in this one. These lanes are narrow and there is zero space on either side. Racing will be of the dig variety and it is single elimination. The rules are simple; don’t jump the light and don’t be first to cross the center-line. If you can accomplish those two things and cross the finish line before your opponent, you move on to the next round. After that, just be the last car to win a round (finals) and walk away with a fist full of cash. Easy right? This contest is Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

Join us on the streets of Texas (Mexico) for some late night interstate roll racing. Climb on board an 850whp Procharged (F1A) Chevrolet Camaro and buckle up for some serious highway rolls. First, we will take on a 900whp YSI Chevrolet Corvette Z06 well equipped with a Late Model Engines (LME) built 7.0-liter, all-aluminum, dry sump engine with a Vortech YSI supercharger. Ambient air is cooled and mode denser with a methanol injection system (5-gallon Read More
