Jet Car Blows up at Bandimere
At the night of Fire and Thunder (May 16, 2009) at Bandimere Speedway in
Morrison, Colorado, one of the jet engine cars was preparing to make its'
second run down the drag strip when it had a slight problem as you'll see.
It's the green car on the left side of the screen. The other car was
already primed to go, so they let it make its run anyway.
"The Big Block Chevy Experiment"
What would happen if you took a 460 BBC out of a Camaro that ran 10.60s and
dropped it into an altered? The test vehicle is Matsuda Racing's '48 Fiat
Topolino altered (normally powered by a blown alcohol small block Chevy).

One Of The Fastest Cars In Colorado
This is probably one of the fastest cars (or should I say nternal
combustion engine) I have seen race. It's a Pro Mod Dodge Viper who can
have times that can beat alcohol cars and compare to the jet cars. I love
to watch this guy race and I think you will to.
This video contains two clips of him racing, and then a clip of the alcohol
cars and jets cars to compare the time. Enjoy!
