Adam Carolla and Matt D’Andria sit down with professional drifter Conrad Grunewald.

Grunewald started drag racing in 1995, then switched to road racing in 2000, competing in Grand-Am. In 2009, he formed Conrad Grunewald Racing and built a 2010 Camaro SS drifter car. He brings the car to the shop and fires it up, throwing some of the loudest, heaviest revs we’ve heard.

Freightliner Truck

March 25, 2011

Not that often you see a 1900+ Hp Diesel Race Truck. Mike Ryan’s Freightliner is just that. With it producing close to 2000hp on Diesel fuel, it no wonder this truck produces some spectacular results on the track and places such as Pikes Peak. This ‘lightweight’ Freightliner weights in at just about the 9900 pound mark, features a 2 huge turbocharges and numerous other tricks to allow this truck to perform, well, crazy fast as well as handle well enough to compete in Pikes Peak and finish near the top of the marks. We won’t say how cool it was to see it come to the shop in Gulf Racing Livery!
