YOU don’t often see street cars reel off side-by-side six-second passes, so when Bryant Goldstone’s ’73 AMC Javelin went doorhandle-to-doorhandle with Tom Bailey’s Camaro with both cars in the sixes, it was one of the highlights of Drag Week 2018.

Powered by a 572ci big-block Chev with twin 88mm Precision turbos backed by a Rossler Turbo 400, Pro Torque converter and a Gear Vendors, it’s run 6.70s at Drag Week before, but was slightly off that pace this time around.

It wasn’t an improvement, but that’s racing.”
