Have you ever wanted to feel the exfoliating joy of a 40-foot-high, 300-foot-long sandblaster of a rooster tail? Then you want to get to know Dennis Rieck and his dirt-loving Top Fuel dragster, Hammerdown.
When Rieck drops the hammer, sand flies. Everywhere. Why? Because he's dropping the hammer on a supercharged 500-cubic-inch Hemi V-8 that puts 7,000 horsepower into the dirt through its paddle tires.
