Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

AHRA Phoenix 1971 - Bee Line
Footage from the AHRA race at Bee Line (Phoenix) in 1971
Below commentary copied from Dragzine.com
Slingshot Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stockers, Modified
Production, Super Stockers, a young and curvy Linda Vaughn; it's all there.
But perhaps the most interesting element captured and one that drag racing
historians will pick up on right away is the presence of "Big Daddy" Don
Garlits' Swamp Rat XIV. Although not the first rear engine dragster by any
means, it undoubtedly ushered in the rear engine movement that led to the
Top Fuel cars of today, and it's the footage of Garlits debuting and
winning in the car at Pomona in 1971 that will forever live in infamy. But,
as the AHRA Winternationals at Beeline took place in late January -- prior
to the NHRA Winternationals -- what you're witnessing is the actual debut
of the Swamp Rat XIV at Beeline.
