Huge Big Rig Race Crash! June 2002 Calgary
Scary Big Rig Race Crash June 2002 Calgary. (Crash at the 2:00 mark)
One of the scariest moments I caught in all my 25 years covering racing at
Race City. Look for #76, the star and stripes Peterbilt get pinched and
wrecked into the corner three wall at the 1:59 mark. Fortunately the driver
suffered only minor injuries despite having to be rescued by safety crew
with jaws of life. The destruction was staggering, however the truck
cockpit stayed together due in part to the construction and thought given
to protecting the driver. The race was red flagged in less than five
seconds, Race City recue crew was on his truck in less than 30 seconds. I
will follow this up with an interview with Mike (the racer) I conducted a

( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

Extreme Danger Rally Race in a Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.
