Big Turbo vs Blown Camaro No prep race almost ends in disaster for a ’69 Chevrolet
The Battle of the Alamo No Prep event took place a few months ago, but social media still can’t get enough of the thrilling action involving the great mix of sketchy surfaces and massive power monsters. Concrete example, the “Shake N Bake” and “Birdman69 Chevy Camaros go head to head at the Alamo City Motorplex in Marion, Texas.
These types of races are the main specialty of the National racing association without preparation YouTube channel, and whenever there is something new it brings the thrill of seeing which of the pilots manages to hold up the best.
