On Sunday, June 8, 2014, Import Drag Racing Circuit/Street Tuner Mayhem made its annual stop at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. IDRC is an event geared toward import cars and domestic sport compacts (FWD or AWD with 4 or 6 cylinders). This year’s event consisted of drag racing by class (super stock, super mod, street bike, heads-up), the JDM Chemicals car show judged by INSTAFAME on behalf of DSPORT Magazine, and temperamental weather.
Day two of TX2K14 returned to Texas World Speedway to crown the first champions of the TX2K Roll Race Nationals. Today, TWS lived up to its nickname, "The Worlds Fastest Speedway." A few decades ago, when the speedway was a bustling hub for sanctioned motorsport, it was dubbed the fastest speedway when Mario Andretti set a record speed of 214.158 mph, while qualifying for an Indy race. The top speed achieved today by contrast, was set by a road-fairing, fire spewing Bull, clocking in at an impressive 201 mph. Needless to say, it's fitting today's record was set by the eventual Unlimited Class winner.
When you think about Texas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? If it's high horsepower, you've come to the right place and we've done something right. It's only fitting that Texas throws an event of this caliber considering it also hosts two of the oldest and most well-known high-speed races, the Texas Mile and the Texas Invitational (TI). And, it’s home to what was once considered the fastest non-restrictor plate tracks on the NASCAR circuit with entry speeds in excess of 102 mph, and corner entry speeds over 200 mph. This makes it a perfect venue for TX2K. For the past 15 years, TX2K has kicked off the automotive season in March and has easily become one of Revvolution's favorite events of the year. Who needs a beach with a bunch of drunk college kids? It might just be us, but a mass gathering of some of the baddest cars in the nation sounds far more appealing.
Round Five of Formula Drift is where championships can be won and lost. Generally speaking, there’s quite a substantial point spread, and if the past few years have told us anything, it can be either a breaking point or push the leaders that much further into the lead. Check out our full coverage of FD Round 5 at Evergreen Speedway, Monroe, WA.
Bandimere Speedway kicked off its drag season with the explosive annual event, NAPA Auto Parts Night of Fire and Thunder last Saturday, May 18th. Jet Cars, Nitro Cars and Domestic Drag Racers put on a show for a good cause. And Revvolution of the Rockies was there to enjoy a little sensory overload.
