The TX2K 2015 street car Roll Race segment is officially in the books and we are happy to report it was just as epic as seen on past YouTube vids. Despite the late night shenanigans prior, the Super Street team arrived early at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX to check out the scene - this was the first time at this track for TX2K, reason being it is wider, longer and nicer than the previous strip.

Against weather forecasts and advice, Peter Blach, founder of TX2K, was still able to bring out a plenty of high-horsepower cars. Most popular entries included the Nissan GT-R, Lamborghini Gallardo, Toyota Supra, Chevy Corvette, Porsche 911 and Mitsubishi Evo. The spirit of performance continues to evolve with more 2000+hp cars than we've ever seen. Event sponsor, AMS Performance and its Alpha GT-R serious showed up in spades.

The TX2K15 Roll Race Nationals is a unique take on motorsports and simulates what would go down during a highway battle. Entries were limited to around 130 700+hp cars. Three classes exist: Unlimited, Super Sport and Sport. Two cars use 700 ft. of the strip to get up to 60mph before the start flags. At the marked start each car can be no more than a half a car length apart and +/- 5mph of each other or a re-race occurs. The race then travel 1,500 ft. to finish (1,320 is a quarter-mile) however the total length of the VHT covered track is 3200 feet. TX2K trap speeds ranged from 165mph to 200mph, depending on class.

More GT-Rs than we could count showed up - Godzilla is still the king of speed. The final battle in the Unlimited class boiled down to a battle of the 1800+hp GT-R, driven by Gideon Chamdi and Kyler Oakes. After a gruesome race and rerun Oakes was able to power to first place in a full-interior, stereo- included mega street build - full story detailing all the action to come. After the awards ceremony was an open quarter-mile drag racing portion under the lights. Dyno runs were also occurring all day.

Exciting to say the least, and now here is enough photos to make you feel like you were there. TX2K Day 3 Saturday was called due to Houston rain.

Stay tuned for the full TX2K15 Roll Race results, driver interviews, video and dyno winners.
