Big Tire No Prep – New York Street Outlaws

April 17th, 2021

Despite not being known as a hot bed for No Prep Drag Racing, the New York State area put on a pretty good show from South Mountain Raceway (Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania). Some real heavy hitters showed up for the eighth-mile event, including Swamp Thing and White Zombie  – all the way from the bogs of Mississippi. The venue is an eighth-mile stretch of blacktop. As the name implies, the track is not prepped, and track conditions are purposely meant to resemble those of a street race. No timers and no tree are used. Just a flag man and a spotter Read More

Comeback Kid – 1800HP Stick Shift Camaro

April 3rd, 2021

This kid has got an incredible story to tell drag racing fans around the world. After posting a personal best ET of 7.48-seconds @ 191 mph at TX2K21, this guy pulled the ‘chute and slammed his bomb-diggity Camaro into the retaining wall on the left. Typically, this would indicate that a driver and race team were through. Lucky for these guys, the competitors at TX2K21 were not having any of that. This rowdy band of gearheads pitched in and removed the damaged front panels, replaced the front spindles and swapped the wheels. With a few more wrinkles in the rear Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Nissan GTR – Daytime Street Hits

July 11th, 2020

Begin with a couple of Corvettes, add a Camaro, a Nissan GTR, a Subaru that looks like it just rolled off the set of Mad Max and you have the makings for an entertaining day of racing on the streets (of Mexico). These guys took their cars – in various stages of modification – down south to see who had the rolls to be king of the bakery. Take a look. The rear-wheel drive Corvette Z06 comes stock with a supercharged and direct fuel injected 6.2-liter V8 that can produce 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. This top tier Chevy Read More

8-Second Turbo S10 Dominates Truck Class

August 7th, 2019

Excuse me! It’s officially a 7-second Turbo S10 after posting a 7.78-second pass @ 178 mph in the finals of the Truck Class at Street Car Takeover Indianapolis. Lucas Oil Raceway was the backdrop for a glorious day of drag racing as this awesome S10 pickup takes on compacts and full-size pickups in his quest for cash and a trophy. Making this little truck go is an aluminum block LS (5.3-liter) engine with a Dougherty Racing camshaft (custom grind) and a Precision Pro Mod turbocharger. After a solo pass of 8.23-seconds @ 134 mph in the quarter finals, the S10 Read More

266 MPH BIG RED Camaro – Inside the Build

February 10th, 2019

As a muscle car that began as a production model Camaro Z28, this Chevy has evolved a long way into the complete racing machine you see today. BIG RED was initially modified as a Pro Touring car. After shocking the field at the legendary La Carrera Classic, in Mexico, this classic cruiser was kicked to the curb for being too much for the other Pro Touring cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.) to handle. After all, it was “only” a 1969 Camaro. Since then, BIG RED has gone on a tear. It is currently setup for top speed airstrip (mile and Read More

Legal Street Digs – Coffeyville, Kansas

August 30th, 2018

Coffeyville is one of the only places in the world smart enough to close-down a public street and let it become a moneymaker. How, you say, does such a thing transpire? Well, once a year, the good citizens of Coffeyville go in the No Prep Drag Racing business and street racers from all over the United States flood-in to spend their hard-earned dollars on motels and restaurants while trying to claim cash prizes and bragging rights on the blacktop. It’s great fun and (literally) the entire town gets involved. In addition to the carnival atmosphere; there are some big-name cars Read More

Second Chance Racing – Motivational Drags

August 2nd, 2018

If this one don’t get you fired up – your wood must be wet! Tanner is an inspiration to me and I believe he will have a similar effect on other racers and non-racers as well. Approximately one-year ago Tanner was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle. The bike collided with a car and Tanner was badly injured. He lost a portion of both legs and had a severe spinal injury (among other things) that prompted doctors to predict that he would never walk again and he most surely would never drive. The best that the medical profession Read More

7-Second Rotary Powered Mazda RX-7

May 15th, 2018

I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto – oh, wait a minute that’s exactly where we are – for No Prep Mayhem. With $20,000 on the line in this eighth-mile No Prep shootout, there are some of the baddest small and big tire cars in the land chomping at the bit to get on the track and get sorted out. Approximately sixty small tire vehicles and twenty big tire machines have showed up to claim their share of midwest bragging rights and cold hard cash. Hate Tank, The Luv, Flaco, and Amoris are all on hand to get their Read More

$25K No-Prep – Blown Chevy S10

April 11th, 2018

With no electronic timing and surface conditions that mimic those of public streets, No-Prep Drag Racing has quickly become the hottest ticket in town. This video takes us out to Bounty Hunters III No-Prep Grudge Nationals where some of the baddest street cars in the nation are gathered to see who can claim bragging rights and a big stack of cash. One of the competitors in the top tier Big Tire Class is Steve Wiley and his supercharged Chevrolet S10 pickup. Despite having a steel roof and quarter panels, this is a full-on race truck. It features a tubular chassis Read More

Red Demon DSM – No Prep Banger

September 26th, 2017

Allow me to begin by saying that if you can make it to the final round of any drag racing event with a four-cylinder powered vehicle, kudos to you! On the other hand – this is certainly not your average four-cylinder. This is a Boostin Performance built 2.0-liter (4G63) with aluminum connecting rods. It is being choked by an 86-millimeter Precision turbocharger and a methanol injection system. The car is making an incredible 85-pounds of boost and is capable of producing 1,500hp (from a four-cylinder!). The event is Chitown King of the Streets and the Red Demon DSM is competing Read More
