Drag Challenge


Everything you need to know about Street Machine Drag Challenge:

Everyone has an opinion on what constitutes a street car, and the quicker the cars get the more intense the argument becomes; how do you decide what’s street and what’s not?

So in 2014 we took a leaf out of Hot Rod’s book and created our own version of their iconic Drag Week – we call it Street Machine Drag Challenge. It’s the toughest test for street cars in the country.

Here’s how the 2024 event is going to go down:
