  • Pony Wars: Camaro vs. Mustang – A 2017 Ford Mustang GT and a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS go head-to-head on a dyno, road course, and drag strip – first with $5,000 to spend on bolt-ons, then with superchargers and all the teams can get their hands on for $15,000.
  • $10K Drag Shootout – Teams are given $10k to buy, build, and race a drag car in just 10 days with a plethora of surprises and challenges along the way. The score is settled at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio in September.
  • Coyote vs. LS Shootout 2 : Boost – Horsepower Wars revisits the simple, yet controversial debut into the series– but this time with two boosted versions of each engine, $15,000 each, and as much horsepower as possible.
  • True Street Chassis Dyno Showdown – The rules are simple: 100 mile drive, license, registration, insurance, and 100 percent pump gas in the tank. Three back-to-back runs with the highest average power wins.
