Frank Spittle on The Freight Train Top Fuel Twin Engine Harley ( Part 1)

Frank Spittle, who raced drag bikes for more than 20 years, purchased the Harley-Davidson from Elmer Trett in 1983 and named it Freight Train for its locomotive-like amounts of pulling power. Spittle's best times on the Harley were 7.63 seconds in the quarter-mile at 191.27 mph and 5.19 seconds on an eighth-mile strip at 147.56 mph. In 1985, Spittle wrecked at 145 mph, retired from racing and sold Freight Train to his crew chief, Jimmy "T-Bird" Yelton, who rebuilt it in 1990 in his Gastonia, N.C., shop for Randy Milling to race.

Quickest & the Fastest 1980's style
Elmer trett runs 198mph on a BRAND NEW BIKE, can only guess that it is it titanium framed bike, we think it is 86 or 87. But somebody, " me" did a poor job of marking the tape. Enjoy. I don't want to ruin it for you, because the year before Elmer ran 200mph, but in the semi's he meets up with Mark Miller that was the quickest bike running a 6.96 the year before,,,,,,& at this race he ran 7.21. 7.24. 7.26. 7.28

motorplex Elmer Trett & Sam Wills.mpg
Our first trip to the motorplex ennis TX. Was a real eyeopener. We had raced at Wichita KS, great bend, ark city liberal Ks. Tulsa ok, KCIR in kc MO........but when we drove by in the middle of the night and it was lit up like a NFL football stadium. I think we all took a DEEP breath! The next day it was more of the same, my wife Lynne & I were in a LONG line behind Jim McClure and we visited for a long time till we got up to pay our entry fee. The list of names that showed up for this race are many of the stars of the day. Bill Furr Marion Owens Jim McClure Terry stonesphifer Sid pouge Terry kizer Nigal Patrick Turk dale John peek John Mancusso Larry hays Been looking for this tape for a long time. Hope it comes out good. Listen to the announcer, it was years after the meet that I figured out it was Bob Frey from NHRA. This is Elmer Trett then Sam Wills

Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.
