2000 hp Gallardo Challenges a Souped Up ‘Stang in Texas
The Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas recently hosted the third TX2K drag racing event. It’s a pretty great way for speedsters to put the pedal to the metal in a safer environment than the actual streets; the raceway has a 4400 foot track and, obviously, no traffic. But, a couple of guys decided to take their battle to the streets, and film it for posterity. It seems fairly ill-advised to take a 2000 hp Lambo and a Mustang with an 88 mm turbo and race them on the open road, but it does make for compelling viewing. Even though the Mustang is a pretty fierce beast, it’s no match for the Lambo.
This video gave me serious heart palpitations. While I cannot condone illegal drag racing, I also can’t deny that this is a pretty exciting match-up. Strap yourself in and check out the video below.
