Underdog Nova No-Prep

July 25th, 2017

Proving that more is not always better, this 400 cubic-inch small block powered Nova tore up the track and the competition during the New Edge Automotive and Detailing (NEAD) No-Prep Throwdown at the Eddyville Raceway in Oskaloosa, IA. Competing in the Small Tire Class and the Big Tire Class, this Chevy launched out of the hole and into the finals (of both classes) despite having a stock small block engine with a cast iron intake (single-carb) and only one kit (fogger plate) of nitrous. No-Prep drag racing presents its own peculiar list of challenges to every racer daring enough to Read More

Classic Impala – Twin Turbo Beast

June 6th, 2017

You might expect to see a straight 1962 Chevrolet Impala like this in a car show or making the cruise circuit on Saturday night – certainly not in No-Prep racing action. The owner of this prime piece of muscle car is hardly content to sit and be judged, to roll slow, or to ride stock. When asked about estimated power output, the owner would only say, “A lot.” He did divulge that the Chevy was running a Brodix, all-aluminum, big block, roller engine with a pair of 88-millimeter (45-pounds of boost) turbochargers. This is No-Prep racing – from several events Read More

Dirty South No-Prep

May 26th, 2017

This clip opens like the preview to a horror movie. It has pretty (but extremely capable) Kayla Morton battling a big old ugly White Zombie in her multi-colored Mustang ProMod. Most of you drag racing fans will probably remember Kayla from previous videos. In addition to being a solid racer, she is the significant other of Street Outlaws’ Boosted GT driver, Chris Hamilton. I hope that most of you will also remember the White Zombie (from earlier in the month). We saw it at an event cursed with a terrible loss of traction, chiefly attributed to cold weather. This video Read More

Buncha’ B.S. at King of the Streets Chi-Town

October 4th, 2016

There was a real bunch of BS at one of the nation’s biggest No Prep events recently – Boosted Solutions, Inc that is. The crew at BS campaigned three cars in the Senior Class of this mid western main event; virtually guaranteeing that one of them would make it through to the finals. These guys are serious about forced air induction and even more serious about No Prep. The feature car for this video is a Mustang SVO with a big block Chevrolet engine and twin 94-millimeter turbochargers. This thing really gets down the track in a hurry. Check out Read More

$5000 Grudge Match – Kye Kelly vs. Street Beast

August 24th, 2016

It’s Outlaw Armageddon, a gathering of the biggest and baddest names in No Prep drag racing, and it seems that some inflammatory statements have been made. Kye Kelly, in particular, has taken exception to comments made by the chief of the Street Beast team – a man they call Doc. Doc is long on guts and short on patience. Now, there will be repercussions. In typical No Prep fashion, these will come in the form of a big money grudge race. Somebody said $2,500 and another said $5,000 – the first barked back, “$5,000 it is.” Now it’s on like Read More

Outlaw Armageddon – BOOST12 Mustang Dominates Small Tire Class

August 24th, 2016

The BOOST12 Cobra Mustang (prepared by Dean’s Perfromance) is arguably one of the baddest street cars on planet earth, with a big block Chevrolet engine and a pair of turbochargers. Nevertheless, it runs in the small tire class of No Prep Drag Racing. That can make it pretty challenging to even get down the track without an incident, much less win a fat wad of cash ($20K today) by making it through the finals. It’s Outlaw Armageddon and, after a successful night of testing, round one at Thunder Valley Raceway Park begins with the BOOSTED12 Mustang going against a capable Read More

2000HP 1955 Chevy – Big Tire No Prep Racer

August 12th, 2016

This bad looking 1955 Chevrolet must truly strike fear into opposing cars because they just seem to lay down and die on the line. It is a pretty impressive looking hot rod but – darn it, guys – you gotta man up and give it all you got. Honestly, it don’t believe that it is fear. More than likely, it’s the stress and strain of sudden, maximum acceleration combined with the rigors of tremendous trap speeds followed by panic stops. This little red ’55 Chevrolet is packing a 2,000hp punch from a 632 cubic-inch big block and a 3-shot nitrous Read More

Monster 800HP No Prep Trans Am

June 13th, 2016

What shade of orange paint is that? It’s orange-you-jealous of that 7-year old paint job. Seriously, it’s Tangerine from House of Kolor and it (like most of their shades) is stunning and durable. So, it looks good but it ain’t just how you look – it’s what you got under the hood. Well, this orange F-Body has been known to blaze through the 1/8-mile in the mid-5s, with the front wheels in the air nearly halfway down the track. Under the hood, it has an L33 Chevy 5.3-liter engine and an S480 turbocharger with a TH400 automatic transmission behind that. Read More

Big Block Cutlass Wins No Prep Event

May 31st, 2016

It’s normal to see these big block nitrous monsters show up at no prep events and struggle to get traction. They spin and slide; darting from lane to lane in a futile effort to make the car hook-up. Well, this rear-wheel drive G-Body not only gets a fair amount of traction, it manages to carry the front wheels through the first half of the 1320 and remain in the correct lane. Running in the Big Tire Class, this Cutlass is powered by a 632-cubic inch big block engine with a 250-shot of nitrous and a methanol injection (to keep intake Read More

Twin Turbo Chevy S10 – No Prep Mayhem

April 19th, 2016

Striving for traction and track position are some of the hurdles that No-Prep racers must clear. With no track prep, no electronic timers, and no excuses – No Prep Racing is an ‘old school’ racing concept that is garnering a humongous following among enthusiasts of all ages. If you enjoy highly-competitive, head-to-head drag racing with limited classifications, then No Prep is right for you. This S10 (called Cornfed 2.0 and equipped with a twin-turbocharged LSX engine) runs in one of the two classifications of most No Prep events – Small Tire. Today the Small Tire class is burgeoning with competition Read More
