Worlds Quickest Drag Racing (Top Fuel) Run

Doug Kalitta at the NHRA Route 66 Nationals in 2004 ran the quickest ever pass in a 1/4 mile for a piston engined car with this 4.420 second pass at 328.22 mph to take the win against Brandon Bernstein who tries to take of like a rocket ship at half track. This still stands as the quickest pass ever in the 1/4 mile by a vehicle with piston engine (2013).
