Big block Chevrolet truck on the drag strip
The twin-turbocharged pickup with a drag chute and wild-looking side exhaust hides some serious power under the hood.
Drag racing is perhaps one of the purest forms of motorsport. There’s nothing better than seeing two very, very fast cars unleash their full power and show us what they’ve got. Some drag racing cars also have a lot more horsepower than you might think. Especially this bi-turbo Chevy pickup truck with a big block engine.
This video uploaded to YouTube by Jmalcom2004 shows what an absolute threat this pickup is on the drag strip.
Examine the truck in detail
Unfortunately, we don’t have power specs on this truck, but we can see it in all its glory. At the back of the truck, we see what looks like a brake parachute attached to it, indicating its speed on the track. It’s finished in an all-black color, adding a real menacing look to a truck that already looks dangerously fast. Up front, a huge bulge in the hood clearly hides strong assets, and the rather wild side exhaust system is another element that helps this modified Chevrolet stand out from the crowd. But how’s it going on the drag strip?
Show us what it can do
Well, we get a great demonstration of what it can do with a few runs on the drag strip. The truck prepares for its first race and warms up its tires. It appears to be at Middle Georgia Motorsports Park. The rumble of its engine is an indication of what is to come. His owner pulls him onto the drag strip, though he bogs down on launch, and may not get the run he wanted, so they line up later for another try.
An evening drag race
This next run down the strip appears to be in the early evening, with cooler trail conditions and the sun setting. Painting looks even better in the evening glow. This time the truck gets off to a much better start and hurtles down the drag strip. It only takes a few seconds for it to reach the end, and we barely have time to react to its launch before it reaches the end of its run. If it ever comes up against some rivals, they will have a hard time containing it.
