Radial vs. The World

Radial vs. The World has rapidly become one of the most hyped and discussed classes in all of drag racing. Just a few years ago, people made fun of the small tires and the radial craze except for those who were a part of it. Now, people all across the globe pin themselves to their seats at the dragstrip or behind the computer for the live feed broadcasts to watch their favorite drivers and cars line up for battle with thousands of dollars on the line. We are proud to bring back RVW for the fifth consecutive season as our leading category to headline the Outlaw Street Car Reunion once again. With colorful personalities like Stevie ‘Fast’ Jackson to acknowledgeable nicknames like ‘The Golden Gorilla’ and ‘Enigma,’ Radial vs. The World is definitely a fan favorite for most drag racing fans this day in age. Listed below is our payout for the 2018 edition along with the class rules.


Barry Mitchell’s Chevrolet Camaro has been a crowd favorite since it’s debut out of the Tim McAmis Performance Parts stables. Packing a roots blown supercharged punch, Mitchell has been a force in the class since his debut at No Mercy in 2016.
