Day one of Drag Week is over and there has been plenty of excitement already. With 310 cars flying down the track the first day alone, the week is guaranteed to be action packed. There are cars of all flavors taking part, from classic Corvettes to modified, late-model Ram pickup trucks. While competition is fierce, the first day was for drivers to get used to the track and their machines on the strip.
Quick ETs are key at any drag racing event. With the 10th Annual HOT ROD Drag Week underway, we are seeing some damn quick times already recorded. And that's what this week is all about: lightening fast times and monster power. Our friends over at HOT ROD have dived deep into Larry Larson's first full pass in his modified Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck.
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.
The final two days of TX2K13, affectionately known as “The Days of Drag,” were a perfect way to close out a nearly flawless event. In stark contrast to last year, no major equipment failures, accidents, or inclement weather caused any serious delays allowing the races to proceed without incident. But we don't want to imply that the event wasn't exhilarating – quite the contrary. If speeds in excess of 170MPH, the deafening crack of two-step and rev limiters and the smell of race gas all elevate your blood pressure to an unprecedented level, then the TX2K Days of Drag are definitely for you.
