Following extensive coverage of major events like the Street Car Takeover at Bradenton Motorsports Park and TX2K at Texas Motorplex, the ImportRace channel returns to Island Dragway for another Test & Tune Day.

Despite the excitement surrounding events at other venues, Island Dragway offers its unique charm, showcasing a variety of vehicles, from high-powered muscle cars to unexpected matchups like the Ford Explorer ST and Toyota GR Supra.

In a surprising turn of events, the practical yet sporty Explorer ST emerges victorious against the Toyota GR Supra, highlighting the crossover SUV’s impressive performance capabilities. This unexpected outcome underscores the versatility of vehicles like the Explorer ST, which may not be the first choice for drag racing enthusiasts but can still deliver impressive results on the track.

While Ford and Lincoln introduced the seven-seat Explorer and Aviator for the 2025 model year, offering comparable performance at a more affordable price point, the future of the Toyota GR Supra faces challenges, with sales declining amidst increased competition from rivals like the Nissan Z.
