Psh! Who needs that?!? Our photo team has been scouring every square inch of the Las Vegas Convention Center shooting pictures of everything that moves our needle these past three days. We’ve shown you some of the best Trucks, Hot Rods & Muscle Cars and now it’s time to peek the higher horsepower Race Cars that are proudly displayed.

Everything from slammed out drift cars to jacked up trophy trucks and 10,000 horsepower nitro-burning top fuelers can be seen…and then some! You like tight cornering, asphalt assaulting warriors? Perfect! We’ll show you some NASCAR’s, AutoCross machines and Le Mans exotics that’ll blow your socks off. The SEMA Show isn’t just a trade show or a car show, it truly engulfs the aftermarket industry as a whole. See what we’re talking about in the gallery below!

Associate Editor

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
