Jet Semi Racing

Ever hear about big rig racing? Well how about jet engine big rig racing? Its just as crazy as it sounds, check out these videos we came across.

First, the Only Jet Semi Truck Drag Race in history! Bob Motz Jet Kenworth vs. Kent Shockley driving Les Shockley's ShockWave Jet Peterbuilt. Bob Motz takes the win on the 1/8 mile with a small margin of victory. This is the only time these trucks will ever race, and they were never allowed to race before due to insurance reasons, and concerns over their large parachutes becoming tangled. Filmed at the former Norwalk Raceway park 8-24-02.

Second, Three jet turbine engines power this truck to 200mph!!
