Ever wonder how the rear engine dragster came about when you still see tons of front engine cars on the nostalgia circuit? Check out this video to gain a better understanding of the innovation called, “the rear engine dragster”!
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
If you’ve never heard of Competition Eliminator, it would not surprise me. It’s a great class with some of the most unique and diverse group of race cars in all drag racing. This is round two qualifying from Saturday May 25, 2013 at the Lucas Oil Racing Series Division 1 at Maple Grove Raceway Reading, PA. For having been shot from the stands, the quality is amazing! by robzneed4speed
Drag racing, no all racing, is universal in nature. It knows no borders or is unique to one language. A few months ago I received an email from Brazilian drag racing enthusiast Rodrigo Poncio, who also streams racing like we do here at MMTV. I was going through some old emails today when I ran across his note. I decided to stop over and check out his website and Youtube channel. I have no clue what the title means or any of the signage in the video. But this much I do know, these folks love drag racing just as much as anybody else. This video is very well done and worth the few minutes it takes to watch, enjoy! by Rodrigo Poncio
