The 405 Throws a 10-Car New Years Eve Street Race Shootout
If you’ve been around the drag racing world at all for the past few years, you’ve almost certainly noticed the rise of “cash days” type events. While they’re really not much different than a typical shootout, the popularity of Street Outlaws has led to a huge increase in the number of events using the term to help draw racers and spectators alike. The format that brings a variety of racers to compete for one to be victorious really adds a whole element of excitement to the whole thing.
This time, we check in with some action that certainly will get the blood pumping. With ten cars on hand representing all sorts of different combinations and platforms, there’s a little something here for everyone. We see all sorts of power adders and combinations as the racers in the 405 wanted to get out and kick off the new year right. For those who weren’t in the know, New Year is synonymous with going out and beating up on the streets a little bit.
Also worth mentioning here is that the cars involved aren’t the big tire cars that we see on Street Outlaws, but instead, true street machines that many of the competitors wheel around town on a regular basis.
In the video below from 187 Customs, we tune in with an abundance of action. Some of the races are tough to call as they’re divided by mere inches and fractions of a second. At the end of the day, this sort of racing might just be the purest that there is as the grassroots competition really comes to life. There’s even an insane wheelie thrown in the mix that shows off a car grabbing insane traction on the street that many would absolutely love to have witnessed!
Buckle up and grab that popcorn because things are about to get good.
