1962 Plymouth Belvedere Missouri Kid Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 11-3-2012

1962 Plymouth Belvedere Missouri Kid Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip. A blast from the past this very clean plymouth belvedere on the 1/8 mile at barona drag strip.Starting with the 1962 model year, all full-size Plymouths were "downsized", with more compact outside dimensions. Despite the "common sense" that such an idea makes, American car buyers at the time were in the thought mode of "Bigger is Better," and sales of these models suffered. However, the big block V8-engined (426) Belvederes proved to be a terror on the track, and became a desirable drag race car due to its lightweight body. 1963 and 1964 models used the same unibody platform as the '62s, but were restyled to look longer and wider. The 1964 Belvedere (and corresponding Fury hardtop coupes) featured a new "slant-back" roofline that proved to be popular, and sales improved significantly over '62 and '63. The 1964 Belvedere is also notable for being the car used to introduce the 426 Chrysler Hemi engine, which used a canted large-valve arrangement. This was such a significant high-RPM breathing improvement that Hemi-equipped Plymouth Belvederes won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at NASCAR's 1964 Daytona race. One of the winning drivers was the famous Richard Petty.[10] RENEGADE SERIES #7, TEST and TUNE GAMBLER GRUDGE RACING SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2012

Ludicrous Tesla takes down multiple Hellcat Challengers Drag Racing!
Save a $1,000 off a Tesla and get free supercharging using http://ts.la/theodore6632 Lucky enough for us we found a cool guy in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat at Moorseville Dragway who was down to run our Ludicrous Tesla Model S. The car had some drag radials but still didn’t do the best from a launch. This may be the “Tesla Racing Channel” but we want good, close races to be honest. The owner wanted to run again but the track was shut down before we were able to. Fast forward to Piedmont Drag Strip where we found another Challenger Hellcat, this one stock with little miles. Couldn’t find the owner right away so went to the tower for a callout, I couldn’t do it for free he said so what the hell, do it for whatever amount he wants. No money was thrown on table so I decided to give him the first move to at least try and get a good close race, which it was! As cool as they were also they were I gave the owner and his son, along with another kid who was very intrigued by the car, a quick ride.
