Our Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge—our annual no-holds-barred track competition—is coming up fast: July 30-August 1.

Run during the HyperFest weekend, the rules for the UTCC are simple: Car and driver must just pass a NASA safety inspection. Period.

So far, we've already had over 40 entries. Here are some of our favorites:

Kevin Wesley's 1000-plus-horsepower Challenger Hellcat Redeye. Will the turns of Virginia International Raceway be able to handle all that power?

Jackie Ding and his modified new Supra. Can the controversial car prove itself as a real sports car?

John Freund's built-from-the-ground-up 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. Will all-wheel drive ensure an easy victory?

Dr. Emre Kayaalp and his 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16. Does having the car that put Senna on the map give you secret powers?


View these cars, as well as the rest of the field, on the UTCC website. Think you have what it takes to win? Prove it.

The Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge is presented by Tire Rack in association with Wilwood Disc Brakes and XClutch, with trophies from BimmerWorldFalken TireHoosier TireSPA Technique and Aeromotive.

That Eclipse makes me happy.  I've always loved those cars.  I tried to buy a friends Talon for years.
