Top Fuel Drag Racing Science – Yea, Motorcycles are Kinda Like This

Posted on

ESPN has put together this really cool video showing the accellerating and violence of top fuel drag racing. Those guys go REALLY fast, but they are wrapped in a cage. Our riders do nearly the same but they just sit on the bike. The only thing protecting a drag bike racer is about 1/8″ of leather and maybe a bit of padding.

Cool video. Just imagine this on a motorcycle!
