A video compilation of the drag race event held at the 2008 Mopar Meet in Motegi, Japan on June 22, 2008.
It was pure heads-up drag racing just for the fun of it, with no classes and no time-keeping, although there was a christmas tree for starts.
The field consisted of beautifully restored pure stock classic Mopars, modified street/strip machines reminiscent of the classic Super Stock/Pro Stock cars of the 60's and 70's, some modern Mopar muscle, and even a few Vipers.
Motegi Street Shoot Out 2008 Rd 4 Finals
Highlights from the 2008 Motegi Street Shoot Out Round 4 finals, held at
Twin Ring Motegi in Tochigi, Japan on Sunday, December 7, 2008.
This is a 1,000-foot strip, with the fastest cars running in the 7.8s
today. There were plenty of smokin' fast domestic Japanese cars running too
(lots of cars in the 8s!), but since I'm a fan of good ol' Detroit Muscle
(Mopar, in particular!), that's all I shot today.
Special thanks to drivers Fukushima-san, Sato-san, and Yamao-san for taking
the time to talk Mopar with me that Sunday!
