As the racing scene continues to evolve every day, different platforms are used and propelled into the spotlight. On the west coast and down south, it just so happens that gas powered trucks are what’s hot! A lot of the time, you’ll find nameplates like the Chevrolet Silverado and Ford Lightning receiving all kinds of aftermarket goodies to make these lumber haulers keep up with cars that are a fraction of their weight. I think that’s one of those things that you’re either into or you’re not. There’s just something about such a heavy machine spooling up and flying past a racecar that just makes some of us get a chill down our spines.
This time, we check out a couple of turbocharged trucks making north of 800 hp that try to lay the smack down against a whole variety of cars that, to the unsuspecting eye, you wouldn’t think that they could even hang with. However, when push comes to shove, you can see just how close the races really can be when these turbo trucks crack the throttle and go up against the likes of some cars such as a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, built Cadillac CTS-V, and even a Hellcat that has some advanced performance goodies onboard. One thing is for sure, a video like this will most certainly make you not want to sleep when that work truck pulls up next to you looking to have at it!
Follow along with the video down below as this 800+ hp group of spooling machines goes head to head with a collection of sports cars. This is certainly a series of races that you are going to want to see. After checking out this night in the streets, be sure to tell us what you think of these pickup trucks and how they hold up around some impressive competition.
