Project cars come and go, some leaving you breathless, while others turn into Frankenstein creations that should have remained only ideas.

Many of us don’t hesitate to say we have fast cars. In reality, our cars are only quick. Ninety percent of the cars we drive can only be defined as quick. The term fast, however, should only be reserved for the other 10 percent of cars. Fast is taping body panels, seams, and emblems to reduce drag in order to gain that extra half mile per hour. Fast is gutting the entire interior of the car and replacing it with a full roll cage. Fast is accelerating from a dead stop up to speeds of 267MPH – in only one mile.
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.
