Sick Week 2022: LSXcalade Racing and Driving Florida Days 1-3! (New Engine Untested & Surprising)
We just finished up installing the new LS7 based top end on the Escalades 427 only a couple weeks ago. With ZERO wide open pulls to test everything and maybe 15 street miles we decide its okay to head down to Florida and take on the very first Sick Week with it. Starting in Bradenton and heading through Orlando, Daytona, and Gainesville... we have to handle some substantial rain on four drag radials and end up lining up with Boostedboiz Kyles civic hatch!

    Sorry about the delay on uploading but we thought it’d be better to condense days 1-3 into one GOOD video instead of having 3 wack videos. Good news is the Escalade is back better than ever 💪🏻 check out the hoodies and re release of the OG shirts!

    I love the behind the scenes. Bad toilet is a no go. How do the locals put up with that 💩💩! People don't realize racing can be boring. Say hi to Canada's chuck Norris. He lives 1.5 hours from me.

    Love seeing you guys back out there! I can’t remember now as it’s been so long, but I believe that you were 1st or 2nd on my list of “Must Follows”. This is the A group consisting of Boosted Boiz, PFI Speed, Finnegan, Cleetus, Dr Tune Em All, Adam LZ, KSR, Cooper Bogetti, Steve Morris Engines, Tom Bailey, Vicegrip Garage and Motion Raceworks. Seeing the friendships that you and those guys have, the collaborations and comradery amongst you all really does the heart good! Thanks for everything that y’all do for us viewers, it’s genuinely and greatly appreciated!

    You would have beaten Kyle if your boost was normal but still for the weight and you were catching him is amazing and its going to be a wicked ride once you give it the beans. Just say you are breaking it in slowly and making sure the bugs are worked out...

  • gafrers

    Very enjoyable. Good luck for the rest of Sickweek

    Hey Mitchell love all your videos!!! I was wondering if you think the Escalade will run high 7’s-8’s? Hopefully you can take the Monte Carlo for drag week this year or next. Can’t wait to see you hit high 8’s this week. Stay safe on the road you two!!!

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man


    Hey man. Watched SW all week live in U.K…. You guys did good. Great to see you out again. Mitch - get some 5 point harnesses in the Escalade! Be safe man.
