This is a brave man. Despite the fact that the engine on his circa 1980 Ford Fairmont sounds like a sewing machine and is clearly about to explode, he takes it to the drag strip and sprays nitrous through the whole run.
After running a 10.20, the tech guy tells him to cool it (because he doesn't have a cage), so the driver promises to keep it over 11.50. Of course once he's back in the dingy, stained interior of his fantastic Malaise mobile, he unveils his secret plot to break into the 9s on the last run.
I wonder how many pieces of that engine are still laying on the track. (Hat tip to StreetsideStig!)
