This shot was taken at the world famous Paris Drag Strip. There's nothing like the smell of a burnout and having to shower the rubber dust out of your hair. Drag racing in a front engine dragster is very unique. You can't see directly in front because the engine is in the way. You can reach out and touch the rear slicks which are about 4 inches from your shoulder. The rear differential is right between your legs. My favorite part is the burnout.

I tried something different this time, took the camera with me when I
backed up Greg from the burnout. Car launches and blows off the tires about
the 330 foot mark. Hope you enjoy, I think this is my best video clip.
