Horsepower Wars: $10K Drag Shootout 2, Episode 8 – The Race

From our friends at Horsepower Wars:

The final round of Horsepower Wars $10K Drag Shootout 2 displayed exactly what the competition was all about: teams fighting through considerable adversity to prove they built the best machine. Team Enemies Everywhere came to life during the second round of qualifying and showed they were the team to beat coming into the final round. Meanwhile, Team Bigun had been battling an array of issues but appeared to be peaking at the right time and was ready to challenge for the title.

As soon as the final round began there was on-track drama that would set the stage for an epic race. Team Bigun’s transmission issues roared back to life when the Moonshine Missile wouldn’t go into Reverse after Lyle completed his burnout. This also disabled the transbrake, so Lyle would have to foot-brake the Granada. Meanwhile, in the other lane, it was business as usual for Team Enemies Everywhere.

When the green light dropped, Farmer cut a .107 light to Lyle’s .115, grabbing a slim .008-second advantage as the rear hatch on the Moonshine Missile flew open. The cars rocketed down the track and were welded together the entire 1/8-mile in a tight race. When the scoreboards lit up it was Team Enemies Everywhere and its turbo combination charging to the win with a 5.721 to a right-there 5.722 from Team Bigun. It was truly an epic finish to the Horsepower Wars $10K Drag Shootout 2 that couldn’t have been scripted any better.
