Horsepower Wars Launches 2018 Season and New Site

Power Automedia has debuted its competition-based Horsepower Wars automotive show and launched the accompanying video platform. The Horsepower Wars production team also has released a sizzle reel that gives an overview of the first season’s episodes so far:

  • Pony Wars: Camaro vs. Mustang – A 2017 Ford Mustang GT and a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS go head-to-head on a dyno, road course, and drag strip-first with $5,000 to spend on bolt-ons, then with superchargers and everything the teams can get their hands on for $15,000.
  • $10K Drag Shootout – Teams are given $10,000 to buy, build, and race a drag car in just 10 days, with surprises and challenges along the way. The score is set to be settled at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio in September.
  • Coyote vs. LS Shootout 2: Boost Horsepower Wars revisits the simple yet controversial debut of the series-this time with two boosted versions of each engine, $15,000 each, and as much horsepower as possible.
  • True Street Chassis Dyno Showdown – The rules are simple: 100-mile drive, license, registration, insurance, and 100-percent pump gas in the tank. The winner will be the one with three back-to-back runs with the highest average power.

“Horsepower Wars is going to be filled with raw, unbridled automotive passion-created by enthusiasts for enthusiasts,” said Scott Parker, Power Automedia’s executive director of content & strategy. “You can get a sense for how authentic this show is going to be to the hobby. Perhaps, best of all, when a fan wants to know more about something that happened in a particular episode, there are pages of content ready to satisfy them- all in one location -as well as outlets to engage the show creators and participants.”

With the first storyline underway, the Horsepower Wars team is working on the remainder of the season. Follow along at
