HOT ROD Drag Week is the toughest streetcar event on the planet. Entrants need to race at five tracks in five days and drive from track to track - this can be more than 1000 miles in total.

These are the Top Ten cars from Drag Week 2017 - that is, the cars with the lowest average elapsed time from each of the five tracks. In our book, that makes them the fastest street cars in the USA.

Sure - there are plenty of cars that can go faster when the conditions are just right, but to do those road miles and then have to pull out the times on demand, no matter what the weather and tracks throw at you? That's the real test. 

Fingers crossed we see some Aussie teams in the Top 10 next year!
