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.
