Watch a seriously fast dump truck hit the drag strip

Watching a vehicle run 15 second 1/4 miles is hardly anything special, unless of course the vehicle in question is a smoke billowing Kenworth T800 dump truck.


That is exactly what one Youtube user captured in this video, taken at the annual Truck Nationals at New England Dragway.

We have no idea how you make a massive diesel dump truck run a 15.1 second 1/4 mile, but we're really glad someone else does.



RCG is now a Benzer

What's up with all the smoke? It's a sign of incomplete combustion, isn't it?

Not that fuel economy matters in that setting, but wouldn't this thing go even faster if it burned all that fuel instead of just blowing it into the atmosphere?

Aside from that, I'm awestruck...
