A fresh YouTube channel, aptly named The Drag Race, is carving out its place in the scene with interviews of racers and action from the quarter-mile dragstrip. Interestingly, the host of ImportRace, John Torres, seems to be behind this new venture. Unlike his previous approach of letting the action speak for itself, Torres now adds quick track-side interviews with highlighted racers.

Just recently, Torres was at the regular venue, Island Dragway, in Great Meadows, New Jersey. Despite its smaller size compared to venues like The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Island Dragway boasts fierce competition.

For instance, viewers have witnessed a limited-edition 1,025-horsepower 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon getting a surprise defeat from a six-second classic muscle car, an unexpected encounter between a Ford Mustang Mach-E and a Pontiac G8 GT, and even Tesla Plaids racing their identical Model S twins.

And in a recent showdown, an orange Plymouth Road Runner outpaced a Chevy Corvette and Buick Regal, clinching a high-nine victory. Key factors in these races include the weight of the rides and the drivers’ skills. Remarkably, both drivers displayed similar reaction times, suggesting the winner’s advantage may lie in potential weight differences.

Notably, the import contender won all three races, leaving the domestic muscle car trailing. However, factors like the Supra being automatic and the Mustang GT being a stick shift likely influenced the outcome. And if you’re craving more from ImportRace, fear not! Here’s a recent series featuring the Chevy Monte Carlo, S10, Camaro, and Corvette going up against anything else with four wheels and a steering wheel!
