Wow, that car is fast! We just watched David Armentrout rip off a mid-7-second quarter-mile run with nearly 200 mph in the traps in his 1967 Nova during Day 1 of HOT ROD Drag Week 2021. You'd think he'd own the Unlimited class with that kind of e.t. and speed. Then you realize the next two cars are in the 6s, and Joe Barry just ran 7-flat in a slower class. Then you remember that each of these cars have to drive 300 miles after the race, towing all of their gear and crew with no help from anyone. That's what makes Drag Week a brutal trial where anyone can win.

On Armentrout's next run, we got a top-end smoke show as something let go and oiled down the headers at 189 mph. We carted to the pits to see what was left of the passenger-side turbo laying in a pool of its own frothy oil. With a wave of his hand, co-driver and mechanic Paul Powell explained that he was going to bypass the turbo, pick up a new turbo somewhere on the route, and change the entire thing in the parking lot at the hotel. Epic, sir.

The Nova is a regular at HOT ROD Drag Week, running low-7s with a twin 94mm turbocharged 427-inch LS on 30 pounds of boost. It's a simple combination in front of a TH400 and 9-inch with a 3.70:1 gear. The car itself is steel and normally competes in the Ultimate Iron class until they switched to methanol and were forced into the Unlimited class. The hood, bumpers, and trunk are carbon fiber. The entire car weighs 3,180 pounds. It's light and fast, but unless there are problems with Bryant Goldstone's Javelin and David Schroeder's Corvette on the road, it isn't going to win the class, even with a heroic midnight thrash.

  Here’s a New One: “Barn Built” Cobra Kit Car on a Chevy S-10 Frame HOT ROD Power Tour Presented by HP Tuners and Driven by Continental Tire There’s nothing abnormal about seeing a Cobra replica on HOT ROD Power Tour. With several companies, like Factory Five Racing, offering quality Cobra replica kits, the cars are popular and abundant, but there was something slightly different about this one owned by Gary Burch of Franklin, Wisconsin.

Tri-Five Western Invasion: Best of the West Plus the Rest of the Best .
We were at Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California, in October to cover the American Tri-Five Association’s Western Invasion presented by Danchuk. The 2021 Western Invasion was a show and drag race exclusively for 1955–1957 Chevys (including trucks and Corvettes). It’s the sister event to the Tri-Five Nationals that has been going on in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for years. ATFA and Danchuk figured if they can do it in Kentucky, they can do it in California, and the West Coast Tri-Five crowd showed up to prove them right.
