This is the USAF jet car powered by a Westinghouse J34-48 jet engine. It can accelerate from 0-400 mph in less than 8 seconds. Driver Bill Braack says he can only maintain that speed for a second or 2 before the car wants to turn itself into an airplane! He challenges aircraft to a speed contest, his car from a standing start and the plane can hit the line at full speed. He has not lost yet! Here he is heading out to the starting line.

great catch- I had trouble getting decent shots he moves so fast

I know! I only got this because he was on his way out to the start, not going all that fast and he flamed the jet for show!! Coming back there was no way. I kept trying to get them both in the shot and got nothing.
