    Grudge Racing - Defined

    Have had some people ask me what grudge racing is exactly, so I decided to share.

    Grudge racing is a form of drag racing quickly growing in the South, NE (NY,NY,etc.) and spreading throughout the US. Grudge racing to some is talking smack in a forum, sometimes followed up by a few pulls on the highway. This is totally different. Grudge cars are usually 7 to 10 second cars, and are very well conceiled. For instance, when a true grudge car makes it to the track on occasion, "no time" or "N/T" will appear on the rear window. This instructs the tower to not display the E/T or MPH, due to keeping the car under the radar. Grudge races are held both on the street and track, and mostly for cash. Some use the tree, and some use an arm drop. I've personally seen $10-$150 races, and some upwards of $50-$100K.

    I'd love to get some grudge races going, whether it be in Orlando or Tampa. Friendly (or non) races consisting of a $20 bill or so. It's a fun way to make some cash, and anyone can do it. Let me know your interest and I'll get with some track owners on having a few grudge races held during a test and tune, street heat, etc. Hears a video of grudge race to better show what it's about:


    Note: this video shows the behind the scenes, and takes some fast forwarding for the action.

    sorry but dont think a child will be walking across the highway @ 3 am or atall ...as for the spectators if there stupid enough to stand in the path or any were near the path of one of these cars thats their own fault & stupidity.

    Please re-read what the paragraph stated. "Can take place on the street or a track"...this particular vid is on the street. 90% of grudge racing is at a track. It's 4 AM, and they are racing on a blocked off highway if you watch closely. No swinging DXXK is taking his $20K + street car and running it where people are driving around. Unlike the fast and the furious, no cars line the streets, and no dipshits stand on the shoulder. These guys respect the cars, and the dangers of what it is - track or street.

    Maybe you misunderstood?

    I enjoy the entertainment of seeing Grudge Races take place at the track. The group of guys going on about thier cars is fun times especially when they finally get up to the front and get their run in. No excuses because the win light or the red light at the tree tells all.

    I see people out there spending money on the car to improve it … If you spend half that effort just working on your driving skills, making you and the car work together as a team, then you’ll go faster – period. To make the car go a second faster on the track takes a lot more energy and money than making yourself drive it one second faster.

    P.S That blue mustang almost hit those spectators...
    It's a one way highway, and the two cars racing and a group of people behind them are blocking it off. The mustang never loses, or comes close to losing control. If it were to lose control, it would injure people who obviously are taking that risk, not innocent children or passer-bys. Bottom line: get a grip, nobody is ass raping a kitten here.

    Yes i did...did you read what i said about the spectators ?

    Its not like the people racing called all the people & said hey We have 2 very fast & light cars racing & we want all of you to line the streets.The people went out there on their own will, i know if one of them would be to get hit the cops wouldn't care either way but it is their own fault if they would have got hit.

    Doesnt fucking matter I love how you faggots try and defending this shit. It doesnt matter if there are no spectators around or a 1000 of them its still fucking illegal. I'm pretty sure also that the road was "blocked" illegaly too since I didnt see any cop cars around. OP if these guys respect the cars and keep the pedestrians out, why dont they do this shit on the track?

    Just like I thought not a single smart reply from you two, because you know for a fact that these idiots are in the wrong. Also OP no I dont race, but I do go to local tracks and support the guys that take it to the track.
