    It's been the core of grassroots hot rodding since the very beginning: you're on the street with your car, another rodder pulls alongside, and you go at, drag racing to see who has the quicker ride.

    Illegal street racing found its way to sanctioned tracks as early as 1949, and that's when street-driven cars began to morph into pure race cars.

    Yet for 65 years, hot rodders have remained interested in real street-driven cars that are also fast on the strip.

    In this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, David Freiburger traces the history of street-legal drag racing, with insider information on the development of the Fastest Street Car Shootout in the '90s, the HOT ROD Pump Gas Drags in the mid-2000s, and the current challenges facing HOT ROD Drag Week

    HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
