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

Turbo Coyote Mustang – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

May 1st, 2017

Despite the multitude of spectacular machines that turned out for Street Cat Takeover in Orlando, Florida, this Mustang stood apart from the crowd. In the first place, the owner was registered in three separate classes – the Roll Racing Class, the LSx vs Modular Engine Class (the Coyote engine is a modular engine), and the ultra-competitive Street Racer Class. In the second place, the Mustang featured in this video posted an event record pass of 7.53-seconds @ 187.81 mph (in the Street Racer Class). This was also an all-time best E.T. and top speed for this car and crew. Thirdly, Read More

Roll Racing – 2JZ Mazda RX7 vs. Blown Cobra Mustang

April 28th, 2017

As much as I love, respect, and support my friends in the law enforcement community, if I am racing on the interstate and a cruiser pulls into my peripheral, I might draw up so tight that the seat cover would have to be surgically removed. My insurance guy would draw up even tighter. Not so on this night of roll racing action, when Dick Tracy pulls alongside and openly issues a challenge over the public address system. Seriously, have a look for yourself. After the customary meet-and-greet at the local filling station, our competitors pull onto the interstate (or whatever Read More

Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford 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

Wild Wild West – Arizona Street Racing

January 25th, 2017

Howdy pardner! You’ve heard about the shootout at the O.K. Corral. Well, there’s another fight brewing (out Arizona way) and it also looks to have all the makings of a real shootout. The wide lanes and flat contours of Phoenix (Mexico) make this a fantastic town for roll racing on the interstate. This video showcases an over-confident Neon owner, a pavement pounding Nissan GT-R, a high-powered pack of really impressive street bikes, and some of the baddest Cadillacs (Badilllacs?) on the planet. The action begins with a cocky Dodge Neon SRT-4 getting used by an 1,100hp GT-R. The dodge loses Read More

Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that 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
