Awesome Chevelle Drag Racing Videos

Drag racing is one of the most exhilarating sports in the world. Even just as a spectator, it’s hard not to have a racing heart when you see an awesome car tear down a track. It’s even better when a classic is reeling down another car, and really cool when a Chevelle is the one doing it. Here are a few heart pounding videos of Chevelles on the edge!

Ram Air IV GTO vs Chevelle SS 454 LS6 - 1/4 Mile Drag Race Video and Massive Burnout

How about a smoky burnout further down the track than you’re able to see before these two even get after each other? In this video, you can see the smoke show before the Cheville pulls over 2/10ths of a second on the GTO. Although both cars are respectable competitors in the mid-12s, great times for such heavy beast, the Chevelle was just a little badder.

1972 Chevelle SS vs BMW Drag Race

How about a little domestic versus import action? Who doesn’t love a good “us versus them” race — we sure do! Watch a classic Chevelle take on a modern BMW and nail it to the wall, pulling a full two seconds on the German sport compact.

1967 Chevelle SS396 with 548cid Motor & 2 Stage Nitrous

Talk about an absolute beast of a car! This 1,300 horsepower machine shook the pavement as it left on its back tires to pull in low numbers.

Low 8 Second 1969 Chevelle on Drag Radials

The front tires barely made it down while this Chevelle was lighting the track on fire! Pulling a blisteringly low 8 second 1/4 mile, it’d be hard to find a heavily modified modern car that could even come close to the speed of this Chevelle.

572 Big Block Chevelle vs Fox Body Drag Race

This monster of a Chevelle nearly doubles its Fox Body opponent in size and still managed to hold its own. It would have been much better if the cameraman would’ve held out so we saw the times, but it appears as if the Chevelle was either neck and neck, or pulled the Mustang.

Are you all wound up and ready for a day at the track yet? If not, here’s five minutes of wheelies to get you there.
