Ever wonder how it feels to sit in a Top Fuel car? This lucky drawing winner learned today at Doug Herbert's Car Show and Open House!
I'm helping the guy get in the car and standing at the right rear tire, there are 4 of us, about 800 lbs. of beef, plus 2 or 3 on the front of the car to hold it down on the jackstands when Doug whacks the throttle. At around 2:45 Doug looks back at me and laughs as the car is warming up, if you've never been around a nitro car, the burning fuel burns your eyes and nose. When the car shut off, all four of us on the back moved away quickly from the car to clear our eyes and get a fresh breath of air.
Enjoy 10,000 hp warming up.
