Drag Week is an event put on by Hot Rod Magazine that takes unbelievably fast drag cars on a 1,000 mile road trip to five drag strips. The result is an event that must be seen to be believed.

Taking a high horsepower drag car on a long distance road trip while hitting the track everyday is a nearly guaranteed recipe for disaster but that doesn't make it any less awesome—at least not from a viewer's perspective.

You can see all of the fast passes, burnouts and mechanical carnage from this year's event in this 18 minute video produced by Hot Rod including 4 time Drag Week Larry Larsen's unbelievable six second Nova and one of the coolest four door 59 Pontiacs we have ever seen.
