20 years! Two decades! That’s how long RacingJunk.com has been in business, and we are celebrating this milestone by looking back at some of the good, bad, ugly and just plain weird things that happened in the race and performance space 20 years ago! Every Thursday, we’ll throw it back to the end of the millenium and check out what 1999 had to offer (aside, of course, from Prince!). Want to share? Tag us with #RJ20Years in your social posts!
In 1999, Stephan Papadakis, took the first FWD into the 9-second club. Now we know our audience is predominately of the RWD way of mind but that doesn’t mean we can’t give respect where respect is due. Papadakis took a Shaun Carlson built tube chassis 1997 Honda EK with a Honda H22 cylinder turbocharged engine to accomplish this feat. Also, gotta love the VHS recording!
