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.

Santa Pod - Easter 1976 (part 1 of 2)
This is a recording from the ITV which shows highlights from the Easter
'Spring Nationals' meet in 1976 - Santa pod's 10th anniversary - watch by
over 50,000 people!!, Where the first 5 Second run was achieved.
Also, Don 'Big Daddy' Garlits was racing here. For the first time in
Europe there was an eight car top Fuel entry. Garlits had mechanical
problems and qualified no.5 with a 6.89/215mph. No.1 qualifier was Peter
Crane in the 'Stormbringer' with a 6.21/215mph pass. Garlits and Crane met
in the first round of eliminations... the rest is history
The quality isn't great but nor was it then back in '76.
Anyway, it's quite long but worth the watch in my option. Hope you enjoy
