The Sin City Small Tire Cash Days are a single elimination, winner-take-all affair with ten entrants and a $250 cash buy in. The rules are typical. You can’t jump early. You can’t be first to cross the center line and you have to beat your opponent to the finish line to win. Burnouts are water only. Ready for some hot street racing action? Up first Read More

Dragstrip Grudge Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Hellcat Redeye

May 1st, 2021

Here, we have some good old “call out for the ball out” grudge racing from the local dragstrip. Featured are a pair of modern-day production muscle cars that frankly put sixties-era muscle cars to shame. Without further ado, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road. In the right lane is the 17-year old Candyman (due to his resemblance to a young John Candy) and his 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 rated at 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 10-speed automatic and the Candyman Camaro has Read More

Big Time No Prep Drag Racing

April 29th, 2021

With hard hitting No Prep drag racing kings like the Birdman and Mike Murillo on hand, you wouldn’t expect a Pontiac Grand Am from South Dakota to have much of a chance. Not so fast! You see, Rodney Weisser and his bright red Poncho are geared up to win the whole thing – and they aren’t intimidated by anyone. Take a gander at this red rocket. Rodney has ample reason to be confident. His Pontiac is powered by a methanol burning big block Chevy motor with a ProCharger. In its current state, Rodney estimated that his car is churning out Read More

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

Drag Racing History – Mickey Thompson’s 427 HEMI Galaxy 500

April 8th, 2021

For some of us, this video will be a journey back to a very different time in racing and hot rod history. It was a time before computers and easily obtainable fuel injection. It was a time when cars not only looked different – they smelled and felt different, too. Cars were big and heavy and 1,000hp seemed like the stuff of fantasy. NASCAR Cup cars only ran about 700hp on a good day. Nevertheless, there is something magical about an old car created for the sole purpose of going from A to B as fast as possible. That’s what Read More
