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!
Mega Mopar - Huge Car Show Drag Racing Burnouts - Supercharged Action at Gateway MSP
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This past weekend Jordan and I went to Mega Mopar at Gateway Motorsports
Park and it was awesome! They had a huge car show, a swap meet, nostaglia
drags, funny cars, a wheelstander, and more. We really had a great time! I
tried to pack as much action into the video as I could. There was a sea of
awesome Mopars....Daytonas, Challengers, Chargers, Darts, Super Bees...the
list goes on and on. It was a weekend filled with hemis, wedges, Superchargers, and dual carbs. If you were there,
and your car is not in this video, please don't dispair....I will have much
more coverage coming up in the days ahead. I hope you found it
interesting....thanks for watching!

440 Road Runner Vs 426 Hemi Challenger
This video was filmed in summer of 1999 and I was 20 years old. In this
video,I was driving my fathers 1969 440 Road Runner and I was paired up
against 1970 426 Hemi Challenger in a heads-up race (no handicap start).
The guy driving the Hemi Challenger was a national champion and the
challenger was also a national record holder for its class. The two cars
ran side by side all the way down the track and in the end I beat him with
a 7.13 to his 7.12. Thats right, I ran slower and beat him...the reason I
won was because I had a perfect .500 reaction time. I tree'd him like it
was nobody's business (only kiddin). Enjoy!!!
1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with
friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom
condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original
Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part
article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the
original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on
DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock
rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had
a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around
the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory
lane with me.

This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly
after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's
to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and
shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories
make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".

Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant
to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents
and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who
wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant
for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions,
built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen.
