The Gas Monkey Garage owner and star of Discovery's "Fast N' Loud" reality show peeled a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat into the Jersey barrier on Woodward here as he battled NHRA Top Fuel superstar Leah Pritchett in a celebrity shootout. Woodward was closed off and turned into a legal, 1/8-mile drag strip next to M1 Concourse Car Club north of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. Rawlings, an experienced drag racer, thrilled the packed grandstands on Woodward with a long, tire-burning display out of the box, only to have his 707-horse steed snap left and into the wall. Pritchett continued without incident to win the heat. View image on Twitter Twitter Ads info and privacy Rawlings took it in stride, flashing a smile, as he limped back to the paddock in his bruised Dodge. Roadkill Nights is full of experienced, invitation-only racers and this year's event had been incident-free until the Gas Monkey's run. Rawlings posted a statement later on social media: “Y’all asked for it, here’s me going into the wall at Roadkill Nights against Leah Pritchett. What a day! Looks like I’m gonna need some more practice, sorry Dodge.” Post by RRRawlings. Saturday marked the third year that Dodge, Motor Trend, and M1 have teamed up for the Roadkill spectacle, which kicks off Dream Cruise week. Rawlings is a Dodge Performance spokesman and he was trailed by fans at the Roadkill event all day. He happily took interviews and posed for selfies and photos. On this writer's 910 AM "Car Radio" show from M1 Concourse earlier in the day, he said he was looking forward to the celebrity shootout. "I wish they did this in Dallas," said the 49-year old of his home town. "But the weather up here is so much better this time of year. This is where you want to be." Rawlings says he owns every devilish model of Dodge's SRT performance portfolio including the Hellcat, 797-horse Hellcat Redeye, and 840-horsepower Demon. The car he crashed, however, was one of four Hellcats - bearing #SaveYourSlips stickers on their front bumpers - that Dodge brought to Roadkill Nights for the late afternoon celebrity shootout. Celebrities included Pritchett, "Roadkill" hosts Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger - and the ultimate winner, pro wrestler Goldberg.

  4. https://www.abc10.com/article/news/driver-who-crashed-into-rancho-cordova-apartment-building-was-out-on-bail-at-time-of-collision/103-580599452 Five people, including three children, were taken to the hospital after a car crashed into a Rancho Cordova apartment building Saturday. Police were stopped at a red light behind a black Dodge Challenger, when the driver of that vehicle spun its tires and took off through the red light on Zinfandel Drive. Officers turned on their lights and sirens and began searching for the Dodge before losing sight of the car near the intersection of Folsom Blvd. and Zinfandel Dr. Officers turned off their emergency lights, but continued looking for the Dodge. Residents began pointing in the direction of where the Dodge went as it sped by, to police. Eventually officers made their way to an apartment complex in the 2100 block of Zinfandel Drive, where they discovered the Dodge had crashed into an apartment. The car and apartment both quickly caught fire. The two suspects ran away after the crash but were eventually found and taken into custody.
  5. that is funny shit
  6. Beautiful color, congrats Mike.
  7. 14 to 15 is just right. Sounds like a fun machine, got pics?
  8. Quite the bummer, RIP.
  9. Never touched the sway bar.
  10. Air to air. Never had a screw. I loved the Procharger, but I went through 3 engines and decided it was time to make a change. Had nothing to do with the D1, just parts issues that could have been potentially avoided with a bit of due dilligence on my part. The procharger was kick ass!! Big red race valve, made a bit over 700 at the wheels on 12 psi and ran consistent 10.5 at 130, it was a fucking blast. I struggle constantly with going back to a blower, probably a whipple. However, I just can't get over the hump on spending money on a depreciating asset at this point. Most times on my car I only spent money when shit broke, and it was often Smart call would be to buy a Hellcat, but again, don't want to spend the money. My car NA is around 11.5 in good DA, don't need a rollbar, shit has not broke in a while "knock on wood" and it has lasted close to 20,000 miles. I do have a 150 shot of nitrous that I have fun with once in a while, that helps a bit
  11. I only have experience with a Procharger, no coolant needed
  12. https://www.surfky.com/index.php/muhlenberg/news-muhlenberg/131320-chase-ensues-after-driver-speeds-away-from-ccpd CENTRAL CITY, Ky. (7/16/18) — A 30-year-old Nashville, Tennessee man led police on a chase from Wendy’s Restaurant parking lot in Central City along a portion of U.S. 431 shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday. Central City Police Department said Patrolman Chris Cummings responded to the Wendy’s parking lot on South Second Street to the report of a suspicious person. When he arrived, Cummings spoke with Darin Wilson, who was driving a 2016 Dodge Challenger in the parking lot. After Cummings asked for Wilson’s operator’s license, Wilson fled south on South Second Street and onto U.S. 431 South toward Drakesboro with Cummings in pursuit. CCPD said because Wilson had several near collisions with other vehicles, Cummings cancelled his pursuit for safety precautions. A short time later, Wilson’s vehicle was stopped when Logan County Sheriff’s Department deployed spike strips in Logan County. Wilson was charged by LCSO and taken to jail. Wilson was charged on Muhlenberg County warrants for first-degree fleeing and evading police/motor vehicle, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment/police officer, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, reckless driving, speeding more than 26 MPH over the limit, disregarding a traffic control device and driving on a DUI suspended license. Wilson is being held in the Logan County Detention Center, where he faces other charges by LCSO.
  13. https://patch.com/north-carolina/mooresville/armed-robbery-report-mooresville-food-lion MOORESVILLE, NC — Iredell County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Monday morning robbery of the Food Lion grocery store on Williamson Road by two suspects claiming to have a gun, according to a local report. The suspects in the robbery were two black males, one of whom was wearing a black and white shirt, Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell told WSIC July 16. The pair demanded cash, which they put in a plastic bag, according to the report, which noted that "it is unclear if a firearm was actually displayed during the robbery." They fled the scene in a grey Dodge Challenger with a silver gas cap. This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
  14. Badass. I would not spend that much money, but it is still kick ass. https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/1969-dodge-charger-hellcat-restromod-can-get-behind/ The 1969 Dodge Charger is an iconic muscle car and its styling cues can still be seen in newer models such as the Challenger Hellcat. While the Challenger still looks pretty good after a decade on the market, it doesn’t hold a candle to the classic Charger. Bumbera Performance decided to fix that by combining the best of both worlds and creating the 1969 Charger Hellcat. Looking like it just rolled off the assembly line, the Charger has a stock appearance but a few clues hint at the power underneath the hood. Among the changes are a custom Magnaflow exhaust and upgraded brakes which hide behind five-spoke alloy wheels. While there’s no denying the exterior looks fantastic, much of the interior carryovers from a modern Dodge. As a result, the car has a lost some of its original charm. That’s unfortunate, but the Charger does have modern conveniences such as air conditioning, a push-button ignition and an infotainment system. Of course, the most notable change occurs under the hood as the model has been equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 engine that produced 707 hp (527 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque in stock form. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. The Drive reports the car was built for Solomon Hill who plays basketball for the New Orleans Pelicans. He appears to have pretty good taste in vehicles, but the model likely came at a sizable cost. Bumbera didn’t go into specifics, but said creating a similar car would run between $100,000 and $250,000 – depending on the level of modification.
  15. Great video. My garage is not that clean 5 minutes after I clean it.
