Can you do a race-ready dragster build in 10 days and with $10,000? The Horsepower Wars 10K Drag Shootout is looking to answer that question. Teams from both the U.S. and Australia will be challenged to build a racecar with limited time and a limited budget—each team has $7,000 dollars to spend at Summit Racing Equipment and an additional $3,000 in cash to buy any other incidentals. Perhaps even more challenging, each team only has 10 days to complete all of their work and get their vehicles race-ready.
K&N is sponsoring the 10K Drag Shootout, and will be providing industry-leading filtration products to each team. “We’ve been spearheading filtration technology for racers since 1969,” said Phil Swire, K&N’s Chief Marketing Officer. “It will be exciting to see what these dragsters are capable of in the final episode.”
This year’s teams include Team Enemies Everywhere, Team Midwest Mayhem, The Comp Cams Dream Team, and Team Bigun (the returning champions).
