This Is Drag Racing At 240 Frames Per Second

Illustration for article titled This Is Drag Racing At 240 Frames Per Second

Last Sunday, Matthew Macomber went to the Nostalgia Drags at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire. This high-speed black-and-white footage is what he came back with. It's tasteful. It's relaxing. It's poetry. Enjoy.

Random thoughts: Drag slicks are cool. Tire sidewall wrinkle is a special kind of drug. Burnout boxes are fun. Tire smoke smells good, except when it doesn't. And I've watched this video three times in the past five minutes. I can't get enough.

It's videos like this that make me wish the opera was more accessible. Who wants to help me write one that's actually about drag racing?
