Watch a 7,000hp Dragster Racing on Dirt!

Never heard of sand drag racing? Well, it is exactly what it sounds like as specifically designed cars and bikes sprint across a dirt 300 foot long dirt track for the ultimate prize of coming away victorious.

The following 4-minute video looks at sand drag racing at the Dome Valley Raceway where the world-record holding dragster was competing. That Top Fuel Dragster has actually been designed to compete on normal drag strips but when fitted with special off-roading wheels, it is capable of completing the 300 foot sprint in just over 2 seconds with its record being 2.16 seconds.
