When you get together your act for a day of racing, you really never know what’s going to happen. Even if you’re absolutely perfect behind the wheel, getting your machine to be on the same page of you as you isn’t always a given. Even for the most well put together cars and trucks, well, things happen. Between the extreme heat and friction, you never know when something is going to give and having one small part out of line could definitely mean a bad day at the race track, even if everything else is going as according to plan.

This time, we dial into Street Car Takeover out in Charlotte as the BigKleib34 cameras are rolling when they capture Jon Deter, the owner of an SRT8 Grand Cherokee fitted with a nice size turbo, a combination that definitely has been known to roll out when given the opportunity. However, on this particular outing, it would turn out the equipment behind the machine didn’t exactly want to go the distance in order to finish up this race weekend all those miles from home. However, that wouldn’t stop Deter and company from trying to fix it up on the spot in order to keep on keeping on. After you make a couple hundred mile road trip to race, you want to race!

If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll be able to join in on the action as they attempt to fix the machine with the Monster Energy Drink can and a crushed racing fuel can. Sure, this isn’t something that you’re going to want to take on long-term with such a solution, however, if it can get you down the track a couple of more times and help you to take home wins, you can’t really argue with the results, can you?
