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.

On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
