Murrieta, CA Power Automedia’s Horsepower Wars has announced its official episode release schedule for the third season of the $10K Drag Shootout presented by Lucas Oil as well as an exciting partnership with Lucas Oil’s cable and satellite television channel, MAVTV Motorsports Network.

$10K Drag Shootout consists of four teams competing against each other to see who can build the fastest drag racing car over a period of 10 days, with a budget of only $10,000 — divided into $3,000 cash and a $7,000 Summit Racing Equipment gift card. Once the builds have been completed, the teams head down to the track for heads-up racing where the team who proves they’re the quickest, takes home $10,000 and their finished car. This season the Lucas Oil $10K Drag Shootout will be taking inspiration from No Prep drag racing events that have become increasingly popular over the years, which mimic street racing – using no traction compound to make the track sticky as with a traditional track event. 

For the first time, Horsepower Wars will be partnering with MAVTV to broadcast $10K Drag Shootout 3 on cable television. MAVTV Motorsports Network is owned and operated by Lucas Oil Products and is the only cable television network in the U.S. dedicated solely to motorsports. “We live for custom car builds and drag racing, it’s in our DNA,” said John Duff, Head of Content at MAVTV. “So when we were presented with the opportunity to partner with Horsepower Wars and broadcast Season 3 of their highly popular drag racing show with a no-prep twist, we knew it would be a perfect fit and blend nicely into our already impressive lineup of automotive content.” MAVTV will be airing episodes of $10K Drag Shootout every Sunday with the first episode premiering on November 1, 2020.

Fans of the show who do not have access to MAVTV will be able to watch the upcoming season on the same platforms as years past on Horsepowerwars.com in addition to the Horsepower Wars Facebook and YouTube every Tuesday starting on November 3.

Power Automedia’s highly anticipated “Horsepower Wars: $10K Drag Shootout” storyline is underway – with the fourth of the eleven episodes recently debuting at HorsepowerWars.com, Facebook, YouTube and leading social media platforms.

For the $10K Drag Shootout, four teams, each with five crew members, have been given $3,000 to purchase a car and $7,000 worth of Summit Racing gift cards that allow each crew to pick and choose from the distributor’s extensive selection of go-fast goodies.

The teams had 10 days to build as fast as they can, and then will be given the opportunity to lay down the fastest e.t. possible September 13-16 at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. In the meantime, trash talking and infighting are sure to ensue. Whichever team handles sleep deprivation best, will be crowned the winner and get to keep their car. One of the other three rides will be given to one lucky viewer – meaning you could actually walk away with a Horsepower Wars drag car of your very own.

“The $10K Shootout debut has been really strong. The teams and drama is off the charts,” said James Lawrence, Power Automedia and Horsepower Wars CEO.

“Racers are going to be racers, looking for every tiny loophole or advantage they can get. At the same time, the clock is ticking. One misstep can set back the whole build,” said Scott Parker, Power Automedia and Horsepower Wars Senior Director of Content & Strategy. “Although you can watch this series on any device, this is the type of show you are going to want to queue up on your smart TV’s YouTube app and watch with your friends. It really does transcend the automotive genre and is just plain entertaining.”

The four teams are:

  • Team Boddie, 1984 Buick Regal: nitrous big-block Chevy – led by Russ Wullenwaber & Jay Boddie.
  • Team Bigun, 1986 Mustang GT: turbo LS – led by Lyle Barnett & Eric Yost.
  • Team Stinky Pinky, third-gen Camaro: blown big-block Chevy, led by Dean Karns & Papa Disco.
  • Comp Cams Dream Team, 1990 Mustang GT: turbo LS – led by Jeff Reed.

Highlights include team-on-team drama, a taco-eating contest (the winner got a complete NOS nitrous kit), a trip to a salvage yard for some parts shopping, and more. Of course there is a lot of hard work going on as the four teams put noses to grindstones in the quest to win $10K Drag Shootout glory. Visit HorsepowerWars.com to see it all!
