If you aren’t familiar with TX2K, it’s a Thursday through Sunday, roll racing and drag racing event filled with the fastest “street” cars in the nation. Although, it’s what happens outside of the racetrack that’s interesting. Car meets, and the infamous late night street racing draw attention to TX2K on an international scale.
Texas is home to the quintessential American attitude of ‘bigger is better’, and this mantra includes a fascination with all things high-horsepower. For automotive enthusiasts, this attraction plays out in the form of the TX2K event held each year in Houston, Texas, where an assembly of the nation’s fastest street-driven drag-race cars takes over Royal Purple Speedway and exemplifies the theory by attacking the dragstrip in a festival of horsepower.
Breaking the record for Quickest Domestic Stick Shift Car with a 7.28 at 196 mph is wild enough, but to do so using the ignored LT1 engine is even crazier!
The goal of new builds in the automotive world is to shake things up. Taking a high-horsepower 2JZ-GTE out of a Toyota Supra, then blending it into the engine bay of a 1975 Celica with a custom multi-link rearend sure stirs the pot!
