Fastest Street Car in America! Meet 5-Time Drag Week Winner Larry Larson - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep 40
HOT ROD Drag Week is the world's most brutal test of a real street/strip car, requiring the cars to drive 1,200-plus miles in one week while racing five days in a row at four different tracks. Larry Larson has done the impossible, winning five times in a row in his '66 Chevy Nova that has been as quick as 6.94 seconds in the quarter mile at 200-plus mph. This ranks as one of the most impressive feats in all of motorsports, and has earned the Nova the title of HOT ROD Magazine's Fastest Street Car in America. In this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, meet the humble chassis builder from Oak Grove, Missouri, who makes it happen. HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on official racing events. This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more money than driving skills... (Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.) Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10 with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up, don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video. The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with money. Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre" is incorrect spelling.
HOT ROD Drag Week 2011, The Whole Story
HOT ROD Drag Week is the event that takes street racers to five races at four drag strips in five days, and the cars are required to drive on the highway from track to track with no support vehicles. In 2011, Drag Week went 1,260 mile from Topeka, Kansas, to Great Bend, Kansas; Amarillo, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and back to Topeka. Look for other videos on the HOT ROD YouTube channel, and see the full story in the January and February 2012 issues of HOT ROD magazine.
