    Seeing as there's no such thing as "bad" publicity, and considering the fact I had the second best seat in the house for this race, thought I'd share an article just written on what it's like to race against the Epling Hellcat. The first 30 seconds or so of the video is all you need to see...

    https://dodgeforum.com/articles/experience-race-worlds-quickest-hellcat-challenger/

    ...the race took place this past spring at ChallengerFest 8 in Bowling Green Kentucky.

    I was as surprised as anyone that this video was picked, but like I've learned; if you want to learn how to compete, compete against the best.

    Enjoy

    Wow! The Scat is no slouch for sure but it seemed like it was standing still when the Cat flew by. Nice video

    Before...the 10 hour drive there and back took its toll on the old cutouts...forcing me to seek out the solution the NoWeeds provides

    That's cool man! Wow that Hellcat is insane. Your car runs 12's all day long and is no joke, that's a fast car right there, but that Hellcat was nuts! What did he run on that pass, low 9's or something?
