2015 Z06 is here!

When we brought you the Stingray reveal last year, we were flat-out amazed at how good the new C7 Corvette looked. It had the right styling and performance to bring an entirely new customer to Chevrolet’s flagship model. Where previous Corvettes were nice and the ZL1 has ridiculous amount of power, it just didn’t have […]

SEMA Day 3 Recap

Today, we spent some time looking at cool new products, and by far, the coolest thing we saw was the Berserker active shock management system from Viking Performance. This changes the game for all the non-active suspension system cars that road race. The Berserker is a derivative of a more complex military application, allowing the […]

Carl Edwards Drives Henry Ford’s 1901 Sweepstakes Race Car

The Ford Motor Company has such an interesting history, and the beginnings were rocky at best. After his first car company went belly up, Henry Ford needed a way to drum up interest in his automobiles. Coupled with engineer Ed Spider Huff, they built 1901 Sweepstakes and raced it. No one thought they could win, […]

Redneck Monday Returns! 3 Fat Guys in a Beetle

On a recent trip to the Texas Motor Speedway, I had the opportunity to drive some really cool cars on the infield road course including the 2013 Viper GTS, the 2013 Mustang GT500 and the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG, but the highlight of the day was the 2013 Volkwagon Beetle convertible. Seems strange that I […]

Redneck Monday: How to Sink A $45-Thousand Dollar Ford Raptor to the Frame

So Ford gave me a 2013 Raptor to play with for a week. I have been waiting for a while to get my greasy hands on one of these bad boys and finally I get one. We had plans to take it out to the sand dunes at Little Sahara in Waynoka, OK, but an […]

Are you ready to “Control the Road”?

I had a chance to spend some time with the Lakewood crew at the 2012 SEMA show in November. This year, Lakewood is launching a complete bolt-on suspension system for late model Ford Mustangs. The kits are true bolt-ons, and driven back to back, you can really feel a difference. Lakewood gave a few of […]

2011 SEMA Day 2 DRIFT!

Wednesday, I had the opportunity to get in Tanner Foust’s Fiesta and take a couple of laps around the SEMA proving grounds. WOW. I had so much fun with this, Tanner is one hell of a driver and other than trying to buckle the anti-submarine belt (the crotch strap) being sucked into a race seat […]

DRAG WEEK!!!

Yeah, I have been a bit absent around here lately, but I have been working on a few new projects, so there will be some excitement in the coming weeks. Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to hang out with the Hot Rod Magazine crew on the Tulsa leg of the 2011 Drag Week. Drag […]

Redneck Monday! How NOT to move a car from point A to point B.

Since there has been a fairly nasty drought the last month here in Red Dirt country, I can’t blow anything up for the July 4th edition of Redneck Monday, so instead I have this–as promised I have loaded one of the outtakes of our recent video contest entry. Here is the back story: We used […]

Vote for us! Mopar Moventure!

Its Mopar or No Car! OK, so we heard about this really cool road rally with Mopar. The idea is to take 10 teams and have them drive from Detroit to Golden, CO in a scavenger hunt. The winner gets some cool gear from Mopar Performance. To enter, you have to make a video talking […]
