Arnie Beswick VS. Shake, Rattle, and Run at Central Illinois Dragway!! Round 3
Well, it was hot, muggy, late, and the smell of burning rubber hung in the air. It all came down to this... round 3 between the Arnie Beswick and Shake, Rattle, and Run. Shake, Rattle, and Run did their burnout first, but it was Beswick you got the crowd to go wild with his half track burnout and 100mph back up!! Beswick staged first to get the show on the road, the lights went down and BOOM!!! It was on, bumper to bumper... It was a very close race but in the end, Shake, Rattle, and Run edged Beswick by inches. What a great match race that truly seemed like it was ran 40 years ago!! July 30, 2011
Driving on the Street with a 2000hp Hemi Mountain Motor
Ride on board with Robert Killian's 2000 horsepower Ford Model A sedan. Some might call it a rat rod, but there's nothing ratty about this high end drag car. It has a chrome moly tube chassis, a Jon Kaase Racing Engines 820ci FORD Hemi engine, making 2,000hp without a power adder. Similar engine as the IHRA Pro Stock runs, but modified to handle regular street driving. The driving in this video is a bit boring, but if you want to really see it in action check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9s5YIwlbH_Y&feature
