Generally, we’re used to seeing the likes of Pro Mods, drag radial cars, and even street cars trying their luck at a pass down the quarter mile. This time, that wasn’t the case at all!

Instead of your everyday dragster, semi trucks lined up in this one to see just how fast they could get down the quarter mile.

The guys at Triple-X Motorsports say “For the first time ever, 18 wheeler rigs were included as part of the NHRDA Diesel Nationals. While some were faster than others, it was pretty sweet seeing these monsters rollin coal down the strip.”

Check out the video below to see the result of thousands of pounds of diesel powered iron making its way down the drag strip!

Believe it or not, semi trucks are raced on road courses too. The result isn’t always so pretty..
