VROOOOOOOOOOM!!! Every time at the NHRA events, well, can mean only one thing. Mean machines all around that are ready to make some noise at any time that they are launched on the track for racing.
There’s no way to relate, in words, the physical sensations you feel when one of those brutes comes off the line with all eight pipes spewing fire from a place that seems like it comes from the depths of hell and there’s no way to explain to someone why they’ll want to see it again, and again, and again.
It really is incredible the first time you hear it. And you don’t just hear it, the sound goes right through you like you weren’t even there. From your head to your toes, you can literally feel the machine as it comes alive, sending intense vibrations through your entire body.
It’s not only an experience that you hear, but also one that you most certainly feel. After watching a day of racing, getting ghost jitters as you still feel the vibrations that are no longer there, probably isn’t too uncommon.
Some people just spaz, some people grab their ears, and some people do things that we’re not sure words have yet been invented to describe. It’s great when you know what it’s going to be like and you are watching someone who has no idea! 🙂
Check out the videos below to see their reaction to the screaming beasts.
This guy entered this race track without the plugs, he was looking for trouble only.
This poor girl nearly jumps out of her skin in reaction to the unfamiliar sensation.
