SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and
only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a
grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike
Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan
them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi
failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a
fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous
Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle.
The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot
rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer,
Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every
compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out!
Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December
5th with a new video premiering each day!

Worlds Fastest 1/4 mile ever on dragstrip 3.58 secs @ 386 mph (621.61 km/h)
Fastest 1/4 mile ever 3.58 secs @ 386 mph (621.61 km/h)
Santa Pod dragstrip is the venue in which the current world drag racing
record, a time of 3.58 seconds at 386.26 mph (621.61 km/h) was set by Sammy
Miller in his Vanishing Point funny car in July 1984
The car is powered by a fuel called hydrogen peroxide which is stored in
the large tank at the front of the car.
To pump the fuel to the rocket the tank is pressurised by two tanks of air
- one either side of the car.
Both tanks are connected together with a pair of pipes and fed into a
The regulator keeps the pressure inside the fuel tank at a constant
pressure (between 300-700 psi depending on the thrust required).
There is also a safety valve which will open if anything should over
The fuel is then fed to the throttle valve at the back of the car, this
controls the flow of fuel.
The fuel is then fed into the rocket engine
Inside the engine, the fuel is sprayed onto a silver mesh, a reaction takes
place and the fuel breaks down giving off heat and water.
This produces a blast of high pressure steam & oxygen.
The engine produces about 14,000 lbs of thrust and sends the car forward at
a very high speed.
In 1977 in the Mojave Desert, Kitty O'Neil piloted a hydrogen peroxide
powered rocket dragster built by Ky Michaelson to the quickest quarter mile
elapsed time in auto history, with a timed run of 3.22 seconds at 396 mph
(637 km/h) with an average speed of 279.5 mph (449.8 km/h). This was in
the desert not on a track.
