Grudge Racing – A form of drag racing where no E/T or MPH is displayed when the race is over. Instead, competitors often compete heads-up on an un-prepped track, with cash bets usually made on the side. Or, as one forum member put it:
- G. Grab a lane
- R. Run what you brung
- U. Unleash the beast
- D. Drag that ass
- G. Get paid
- E. End of story
Considered the “pure form of drag racing” by some and a boring waste of time by others, Grudge Racing is as divisive as it is insane. There’s literally no times and no brackets, just cash. Though we haven’t covered much Grudge action in the past, this insane Camaro take to the track makes us think it’s time we refocused our antennae to pick up more of the action.
Now, we’ve seen some insane cars in the past. But this 1986 Chevrolet Camaro with a 622ci engine (that’s a whopping 10L for those counting) strapped with two massive 98mm turbos has to be one of the most powerful cars we’ve ever featured. All told, you’re looking at an ’86 Camaro that pushes 3,200 horses through two gargantuan 34″ x 13.5″ pieces of meat. Yeaaah. (And the driver tells us it can run even bigger tires!)
“All we do is grudge racing, we don’t turn clocks on,” says the driver.
Consequently, we don’t have ETs or even a single performance benchmark on the car, but the mystery that surrounds the shadowy world of grudge racing is pretty damn hard to resist. So, now that we’re all up to speed on Grudge Racing, watch this beastly Camaro absolutely obliterate the competition.
