Truck Fest 2013: Rollin’ Coal and Drag Racing crazy fast Pickups

When you think of a pickup…you probably don’t immediately  think of drag racing…or do you?

This weekend at Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of pickups trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the king of the mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup dragster at Truck Fest 2013.

Can a pickup run a sub 20 second quarter mile?

You bet.

Can a pickup run a sub 15 mile?

No problem.

Can a pickup run a sub 10 second time?

You’ll have to watch this Truck Fest 2013 video to find out. In another fun and informative TFLtruck video we see what it means to go Rollin’ Coal at the drag strip.
