Big Daddy's New Old Dragster

Engine and shows the new motor how to do an old-fashioned burnout.
Steve Evans takes you on a trip through Don Garlits' illustrious career.
Doug Kerhulas' last drag race-National Trail 1984
Kerhulas' meeting with the NHRA's ill conceived aircraft style arresting
nets caused a closed head injury which ended his career. As Kerhulas' head
was thrust forward from the quick slowdown the metal cables from the top of
the net rebounded and hit him in the helmet at a very high speed.
He was a second round winner in the race.
This was Doug's last race as noted in National Dragster Magazine, cutting
short a rising career. He recovered fully from his injuries.

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.
