No it's not racing, BUT......
Owning and operating a cackle car has its risks.
As little as we do with them, the average person might think that a cackle
car can be a "turn key" proposition. Well, after being on the cackle path
since 1992, I can tell you that it isn't without some very harry moments.
And you have to be on the lookout, ALL THE TIME, for potential failures.
How my drag racing heroes actual raced these things week in and week out,
becomes more astounding as the years go by. And it also makes these cars
even more of a curiosity to the average person on the street, which only
adds to their appeal, and value.
Almost nothing on these cars has back up. When something fails it can
instantly result in an accident. Take the two pieces shown here in this
A rocker arm stand and a steering rod end. Two piece that were set to
fully fail, but unfortunately didn't, prior to a performance.
Was it luck? Good fortune? The late great Pat Foster tapping us on the

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.
