Street races often involve groups of cars, but what are the odds of a spontaneous encounter between an American muscle pack and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo formation? Well, this is the topic that brought us here, with a recent encounter of the kind having resulted in boiling hot drag racing action.
As you'll get to see in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, the battle took place on the highway. This clip showcases a particular brawl, one involving a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

Following the street racing tradition, the two engaged in rolling start sprints, duking it out on two separate occasions. The velocity toys set off at about 50 mph and the drivers seemed to show total dedication.

The Mopar machine was used as the camera car, but the clip also includes footage captured from a Corvette found behind the Hellcat and the Evo, which means you'll get a clear view of the races.

And while we don't want to ruin the fun of the video by throwing spoilers your way, we can tell you there was a definitive winner.

Now, you'll notice that the YouTuber behind the wheel of the Hellcat also mentioned some lost races. And if you're willing to zoom in on that, here's the same Dodge duking it out with a 2018 Ford Mustang GT.

Yes, of course the Blue Oval machine was modded. But you should know that while its Coyote heart packs an E85 setup, the thing has maintained its natural aspiration. In fact, those of you who are tuned into our drag racing tales might be familiar with this 'Stang, as we're talking about a machine nicknamed Black Mamba.

P.S.: Please don't use this action as an example and head for the track when the need for speed kicks in.
