More drag racing – again with alcohol rail drag cars at Thunder Valley Raceway. This car has the big engine air scoop, but doesn’t have the rear wing on the back. Not sure why all the others have it and this one doesn’t. This car was going against a slower car in a bracket race, so the slower car launched first as you can see in the left lane. This rail dragster just got the green light and was launching as I snapped the picture – notice the wrinkled rear tire. The race director is at the left of the photo and he is the one that launches the cars once they are properly staged.
