I’ve always had this idea: is there a way to bring people who build and drive these amazing, street legal prerunners out and race them in a safe environment. While the 1400 and 1450 Classes as well as “prerunner fun runs” exist in open desert, it’s not quite what I had in mind. I’d like […]
History was made and Justin Lofton and the Jimco-built Fox Racing Ford took home his third ever BF Goodrich Tires Mint 400 powered by Monster Energy win, marking him as the only driver to ever take it three times. All it took was a little luck and a running truck. The BF Goodrich Tires Mint […]
Factory original parts are great, but most older cars don’t have factory support anymore. Fortunately, companies like United Pacific Industries help keep these classic cars going where the factory no longer exists. While I was there to shoot the feature on the 1932 Ford Pickup, which features many of their own products including the body, […]
When it comes to hot rods, there isn’t much out there that can beat the looks of a 1932 Ford Coupe or Roadster. Well, except maybe a 1932 Ford Pickup. This version is a proof of concept made by United Pacific as they have launched their line of 32 Ford restoration parts. While you may […]

It’s that time of the year again where we try to get Dave Cole of Ultra4 Racing to spill the beans on the King of the Hammers race course before he’s supposed to. What other details are coming for KOH week? Wait, Unlimited Trucks and a Pit Crew Competition? For many years, the King of […]
It’s the close of this event that reminds me why I like the McKenzie’s Rage at the River. There is a feeling I get while attending it that I don’t get anywhere else. It’s somewhat hard to explain. I’ve been to the King of the Hammers, I’ve been to the Mint 400, and I’ve been […]
It’s been a few years since I was last at the Rage at the River. Coming back, I now remember why I loved the event as much as I did the first time. I truly love the McKenzie’s Rage at the River. For an event that is almost a decade old – the first Rage […]
