Check out the highlights of some great competitors from Colorado who’d decided to compete at this year’s Drag Week.
Drag Week had always been a time-trial event, seeing who can get the fastest ET time. It was more of a race against the clock than other competitors . This year, though, HOT ROD decided to make things a little bit more exciting, a little bit more heated and a lot a bit more competitive.
These are actions shots. This is where emotion, triumph and heartbreak are captured. Wheelies are performed. Engines are blown. Oil is splooged all over the track like a teenage boy who just discovered you could make out somewhat of a boob if you flip back and forth from the Skinemax channel. TV gold!
Are you pregnant, or think you may become pregnant? Do you have a medical condition that your doctor doesn’t know about? Do you get a semi whenever you see under the hood of a 1967 Chevrolet Nova sporting twin turbochargers and a Chevy big-block engine? If you fall into the last camp, you should personally thank our man in the trenches, Joel Chan.
Drag Week is a time when some of the fastest cars in the country come together to settle old rivalries and create new ones. Feelings are hurt and egos are stoked only to crumble like the Roman Empire. Cars of all delicious flavors and creeds come out to the event as drivers violently race their way to the top of their respective classes. This is where drivers are made and legacies are lost. This isn’t a fancy-pants event waiting to hold your hand through the minefield that is competitive drag racing.
