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

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

Crazy Fast Inline 6-Cylinder Ford Mustang

August 30th, 2017

 If you are into unique race cars, you will love this one. I don’t know whether to call it crazy fast, crazy smooth, or just plain CRAZY! This car accelerates so fast and smooth that it is like something from another world. Well, it is sort of from another world, This Fox Body is based out of a beautiful place called Qatar. The innovative power plant is a Nissan TB48, 4.8-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine from a Nissan Patrol SUV (very popular vehicle in this part of the world). Add a 98-millimeter turbocharger with all the goodies, along with a custom 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

Gold Dust Mustang Crushes Eighth-Mile

August 29th, 2017

Hello racing fans and welcome to LightsOut8 from the South Georgia Motorsports Park! Among the contenders in the PRO275 Class this weekend, we have none other than Fletcher Cox (owner not driver). Fletcher is an NFL defensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles. Fletcher is among the elite defensive linemen in the NFL and loves drag racing. He has built at least two high-powered Mustangs. The one featured in this clip has a very special backstory. Fletcher’s late brother (Trell Cox) loved the sports entertainment (professional wrestling) character known as Gold Dust. The paint job on this car is skillfully done Read More

No Replacement for Displacement – Turbo Viper GTS

August 25th, 2017

Greetings roll racing fans! Please accompany us as we take a trip down south of the border (Mexico) for some street rolls. In an effort to prove that there truly is no replacement for displacement, a Dodge Viper (with its massive 8.4-liter mill) will take on a twin turbocharged Porsche 997 Turbo and a Ford Mustang with a Coyote engine and a Whipple supercharger. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes at various speeds with some great camera angles. The footage is dramatic and the audio is truly amazing. These cars are skillfully modified and Read More

1300HP TT Street Mustangs

August 24th, 2017

Once categorized as fantasy, these 8-second street cars have all the creature comforts combined with mind-numbing power. This pair of pony cars competed in multiple roll racing classes at Street Car Takeover in Orlando, Florida before moving on to Orlando Speedworld for some impressive dig racing runs. Each one of these Fords are equipped with a modular Coyote engine. A Hellion turbocharger kit, with a pair of 6466 turbochargers, provides the forced air induction. These Hellion kits are slightly modified to achieve maximum boost and a methanol injection system keeps intake air cooler and denser for optimum fuel atomization. This Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

Highway Rolls – Corvette ZR1 vs. Mustang GT500 vs. Supra

June 22nd, 2017

That is correct – you can run ‘em 3-wide down south of the border. This clip brings us three amazing rides in serious roll racing action. Now, for my taste, I had rather get it on from a dead stop (dig racing). Still, I have to admit that easing up beside another fast car and just letting it all hang-out on the highway (in Mexico) is pretty intense. Speaking of intense: The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the flagship of GM. It rolls off the assembly line as a prolific street beast that seems destined for roll racing. With a 6.2-liter Read More

Country Style Cash Days

June 7th, 2017

Where I come from, the smell of burning rubber goes hand-in-hand with tanned legs in Daisy Dukes – that’s one reason that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else on earth. I thank God for places such as this! This clip comes to us from a narrow strip of country road in farm country. These rural racers entertain all comers, during King of the Asphalt IV, and give them what-for between the corn rows. The pavement is thin but the rules are the same; don’t jump the start, don’t cross the center stripe, and the winner of each race advances Read More
