NHRA Drag Racing - Drag Racing Jet car outtakes
Jet car outtakes, June 2003, Race City in Calgary. This is about as close as you'll ever get to a jet car, more than few unique angles. Jett Force, Brad Janishewski's Rollin' Thunder are featured
The Rollin' Thunder Jet Car is a custom moulded Honda Civic complete with ground effects. It features a Westinghouse-built J34 jet engine from an old US Navy F2 McDonnell Douglas fighter jet, capable of burning 30 litres of fuel in six seconds, generating 6,000 horsepower and 12,000 lbs of thrust at speeds of 250 miles per hour!

Drag Racing Crash Tragedy
An Australian driver is in shock, feeling ``numb'', after his drag racer slammed into a crowd in the United States, killing six people.
Queenslander Troy Critchley, 36, was driving in a charity event in Selmer, Tennessee, on Saturday, when his drag racing car skidded off the road and into hundreds of spectators, who were not protected by guard rails.
Two girls aged 15 and one aged 17 were among the six killed as Critchley performed an ``exhibition burnout'' - when a drag racer spins his tyres to make them heat up and smoke - at a Cars for Kids charity event.
Up to 18 more were injured in the collision, which sent bodies ``flying into the air'', said Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks.
Amateur video of the crash showed the car's engine revving loudly before the vehicle sped down a highway in a cloud of smoke. After a few hundred metres the car skidded off the road.
