Diesel Drag Truck Destroys Track In High-Speed Crash: Video

Follow Nelson

If you've ever doubted the might of a highly tuned diesel pickup, let this video put that to rest, even as it plants the seeds of a nightmare in your mind. Rolling coal and accelerating like a supercar, this diesel Dodge slams into a barrier and does a barrel roll that will stay with you.

Fortunately, thanks to modern safety gear, the driver walked away from this crash. The track, however, wasn't so lucky. Two barriers were heavily damaged, and a light pole was completely taken out by the behemoth drag missile.

The second look at the crash, in slow motion, shows the truck breaking traction around the midpoint of the 1/8-mile run before fishtailing into the left-hand barrier, ricocheting off and slamming through the right-hand barrier and into the grass--and right over the light pole.

Despite the zig-zag run, the truck still managed to cross through the lights (sideways) at 91 mph. Nice run, buddy, but next time, try to keep it pointed north-south a bit more.
