Demon Incinerates Bottled Chevy & Blown Mustang with Hellfire

By -

Demonology’s Challenger Demon stomps a square body pickup and the supercharged Mustang doesn’t do much better.

The video above comes to us from the Demonology YouTube channel and it features the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that its owner affectionately refers to as the soul-snatcher. That owner is Herman Young, who is the man behind the Demonology channel and behind the wheel of the 9-second muscle car in this footage. Young is one of the best-known names in the Demon community thanks to his popular channel and his willingness to take on other well-known internet personalities.

In the video above, the Demonology Demon takes on a nitrous-fed square-body Chevy truck along with supercharged Ford Mustang GT from the GetStanged Instagram channel, both of which go in favor of the Hemi car.

Dodge Vs Chevy

First up, Young and his Soul Snatcher take on a square body Chevy truck that is powered by some variety of GM small block V8 with a 200-horsepower nitrous setup. The truck looks pretty mild, but with a nitrous setup like that, a well-built small block Chevy engine can make the power needed to battle a new Demon.

Sadly, that was not the case here, as the nitrous system didn’t work properly and the supercharged Challenger absolutely destroyed the old truck. Maybe with the nitrous it would have been a race, but it was a brutal beating and we aren’t sure that a 200-shot would make a big enough difference. Then again, this is a carbureted pickup truck from the 1980s with a small engine, so in the long run, a car built to run mid-9s should beat it.

Luckily, the second competitor makes a little more sense.

Next, the Demonology Dodge takes on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT of Instagrammer GetStanged. The Mustang has an array of Shelby GT350 body bits and drag radials, but most importantly, this bright yellow Ford has an aftermarket supercharger setup and an assortment of supporting modifications that dramatically increase the output. We don’t know the exact power levels, but this seems like a car that could keep up with a near-stock Demon.

However, the races between the Mustang and the Challenger aren’t much closer than the races with the old Chevy truck. While the Ford gets off of the line right with the bright red Demon, it doesn’t take more than a second or two for Young and his Challenger to put bus lengths on the pony car.

We don’t get to see any times for these runs, but in back-to-back runs, the Demonology car crushes the GetStanged Ford.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
