All the busted knuckles and sleepless nights have finally paid off and Blasphemi, my 1955 Chevy Bel Air Gasser has run its first 8 second 1/4 mile pass and finished the entire route at Hot Rod Drag Week 2018. This video goes behind the scenes during the race and gives you a glimpse of what its really like to participate in this grueling road trip and racing event. I also address the Hoonigan callout to race my car, which is once again broken. You can also watch me crash and burn during a footrace with a fan and see my buddies perform a parking lot engine swap in a Chevy Nova at 1:30am on the last day of Drag Week. Last, but in no way least, your faith in humanity will be restored when you see a fellow gearhead gift a super cool replacement 540ci Big-Block Chevy and Tremec transmission to the owner of the Nova after Drag Week is over. There's also footage of that guys six-figure Pro Touring Camaro build.
Speaking of footage, this episode wouldn't be possible without the help of 1320 Video, The Hot Rod Network and Jacob Davis so please give each of them a like and hit that subscribe button.
And....if you look real close in the background of the end of this video you may notice something very special has happened, which I'll update you on in my very next video. Have a great weekend!
