Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427 cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @ 181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that!

Banks Super-Turbo Freightliner RACE FOOTAGE
Truck did great. It rained and snowed later in the day when it was our time to race. So driver Mike Ryan couldn't go 100%, but he did an awesome job. Had to take it easy in the corners but hammered it in the straights. Next year, weather permitting, we will be back to destroy the record! A couple things we'd like to point out... those spectators at 0:59 are crazy close to the track! And at 2:27 you can see that yes, it was indeed very wet up there when we ran.
