The four teams race head-to-head on a no-prep track to decide a champion. The winning team gets $10,000 and keeps its car—the losers get nothing.


In the second episode, it’s the first full build day and each team gets acquainted with its car—all the sights and (exasperated gasp) smells associated with these well-worn rides.

Learn about each team’s build plans, and how they hope to take their respective vehicles across the lights the fastest. It’s all in episode two of the Horsepower Wars $10K Drag Shootout No Prep Edition, below.
