This is a little experiment of mine in HD. I was hoping to record three passes down the strip, but we only got two, then it got cloudy before the second one.... This is far from seamless. sigh... Anyway, I'm just screwing around with HD and editing. Let's see how it looks on YouTube...
Worlds Fastest Jet Semi│ Bob Motz │ Night of Thunder 2014
Check out this jet powered semi! WICKED. This jet powered semi truck was at
National Trail Raceway for the annual Night of Thunder event. Night of
thunder is one of the biggest events of the year for National Trail
Raceway. 2014 will go down in the books as a successful event. The stands
were packed. There was a ton of cars, and a ton of drag racing action.
Bob Motz's jet semi is billed as the quickest and fasted jet semi ever
built. According to their website it is the original jet semi, and the king
of quake. They also state that "The first jet truck to run over 150 mph in
a quarter mile (1980). The first jet truck to run a seven second e.t. in
the quarter mile.The first jet truck to run over 200 mph in a quarter mile.
IHRA and NHRA record holder for speed and e.t. Maryland land speed record
holder. Winner of the only side-by-side jet truck race (2002)." The engine
is a J79 General Electric from a B-58 Bomber or F4 Phantom Fighter that
generates 17,500lbs of thrust. It cost about 1/4 million to build. The
fastest speed ever reached in the 1/4 was 234mph with a 6.34 quarter mile.
