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.
Sox and Martin and other vintage racing Mopars
Festival of Speed in St. Pete, Fl; These are the actual vintage super stock
race cars. They were being lined up to be loaded on transporters when the
car show ended. I stuck around just to hear them fire up!
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.

of Sparta, and this is some footage of mopar day drag racing. Enjoy.
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!
