King Of The Streets 2015: Pit Photos From The Showdown At Great Lakes Dragaway

(Photos by Jacob Marshall) – Combining the elements of an awesome, historic drag strip with the new wave movement of no-prep drag racing  was the name of the game at the King of the Streets event last weekend at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wisconsin. Some of the craziest small and large tire cars in the greater Chicago area participated in the event that saw the clocks shut off and the wild action happening on a non-stop basis. We already showed you a video featuring the car that won the unlimited class and in these photos we’re going to show you a whole bunch of the competitors who were competing in the other classes that the event offered.

From evil looking Road Runners to the expected slate of Chevrolet powered Mustangs, there was an awesome turnout at the race. You don’t even have to be a big “no prep” fan to check out these photos and enjoy them. The cars themselves with their nitrous systems, turbo plumbing, or massive engines erupting above the hood line should appeal to gear heads of any and all stripes.

There is more and more no-prep racing going on out there these days and there are more and more cars that have gotten the hang of laying down massive power on a surface that isn’t glued to the teeth. Is this the next big thing in the sport of drag racing? Isn’t it already?!

    Maurice thought he might have gone over the top with his mobile hair drier for his hairdressers on wheels service!

    To me street racing requires 3 things, a license plate on the bumper, an insurance card in the glove box and if it’s on trailer it better be broken. Drag Week is the only real proving ground for street driven race cars and those that have change into their capes at the track aren’t real street cars.

      I have to agree. Plates, insurance and use the same gas from the pump any other street car would fill up with. I’d guess those wheelie bars don’t play well with dips and speed bumps in the street. Turbo and engine life wouldn’t be measured in the 10 of thousands of miles without an air filter too. Some of these cars are marvels of engineering. But just because they can drive around the block hardly makes them street cars.
