I used to see them down at MIR in Sourthern Md. Loved watching them, sitting along the rail when they launched was deafening. It was painful but I was in awe of them...as long as they were the very last to make their runs down the track.

During their routine they would usually dump raw kerosene from the stacks onto the track fouling it completely. It was quite spectacular watching a Pro Mod attempt that 1-2 shift and watch it nearly rocket into the wall. Just like being at a loud rock concert. Good times.

Hey, moron on the track in FRONT of the jet-powered semi truck--If you want to risk your life on the brakes not failing under load that's fine. But maybe the kid could wait in the stands with a responsible adult?

lol.. Old man Motz has been burning up trees, signs and lots of other stuff at the starting line for a long time.

I first read that as pragmatic gear head and thought well that's probably a boring video...

Some people just want to see the world burn...

My years at the track have taught me what kind of person builds an exibition type vehicle. People who can't compete in the races but want to pretend they could and then brag about how fast it goes. meh.

This would be awesome to see live.

Showed up to the Pomona races a few years ago without earplugs. Quickly paid for earplugs after the first race. The races are an experience. An experience worth having.

That was awesome. Am inevitably waiting for the follow-up video of when truck driving idiot pulls up to the line and accidentally hits the "incinerate everything behind me" button on the crowd.
