In the July 2013 issue of Hot Rod, Mike Finnegan writes about Moran Motorsports’ 4,440-horsepower hemi-headed big-block Chevy in the July 2013 issue of Hot Rod. Crafted entirely from billet, this M1 alcohol-powered motor has a power curve that is 2,000 rpm higher than Mike Moran’s best Chevy wedge-head combo, plus it also produces 500 more horsepower at every data point of the dyno graph. Pretty awesome, no?

HOT ROD’s David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan hit the road with 500 of their friends for Drag Week. It’s the most brutal test anywhere of real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for 1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week. The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. by MotorTrend
