As part of the advertising campaign for the Carolina Nationals at the zMax Dragway, Tony Schumacher, the most decorated driver in the history of NHRA Top Fuel, brought his 10,000 horsepower dragster to the Charlotte Motor Speedway to hang out with five-time NASCAR Monster Cup series champion Jimmie Johnson. As part of the promotional build up, Jimmie hopped into Tony’s dragster while the crew warmed up the car on the pit road.
The car was already idling furiously when the crew decided to ‘blip’ the throttle. You can see the shock in Jimmie’s face as the car lets forth a thunderous growl that will make even the most seasoned race fan freak out and jump out of their shoes. The two champions then got in their respective rides for some show of horsepower, doing a dual burnout down the pit road.
Jimmie starts with a short burnout while Tony goes all out and laid down a long smoky one. Obviously, when your ride has more than ten times the oomph than the car to your left, it would be easier to generate an enormous cloud of tire smoke and dwarfing the other driver’s effort. We’re hoping that there would be more cross-sanction promotions such as this one, as both the NHRA and NASCAR can benefit from bringing together their avid fans.
