Xcorps #39.) SPEED – Another all American horsepower episode this one called SPEED featuring Xcorps cameras rolling at The Bonneville Salt Flats Speedway Utah for SPEEDWEEK with the fastest cars on the planet going for world land speed records!
The show opens with some scenic road shots and a look at the RIVE provided band The Clay People hammering their high octane song ‘Supersonic Overdrive’ in their cool retro 60s video. Nice fit with those dancing girls! XC host Jason Lazo’s new show theme song carries the action into segment one with Rat driving his mega coach on the salt and land speed record holder Mike Nish driving the Royal Purple streamliner car full tilt on the flats!
After the break Rat checks out the salt track and heads for the starting line where high horse vehicles in all classes from top fuel dragsters to classic street muscle to modified trucks and street bikes lining up for take off! See the full speed runs and hear the actual official times read over the radio sets. Suburban Noize band Dirtball rolls right with the action including a high speed out of control hood losing spin across the tricky salt crystal track. Check out a classic 1970 Plymouth Super Bird ready for takeoff and a ’71 Camero doing a spin out at over 250MPH launching the car end over end into the desert air! Close ups of the wrecked rig here too!
The next segment takes a look at what the street bikes can do and Rat talks to Richard Thomason owner of Danny Boy 2 – a modified airplane fuel drop tank- who talks about what it’s like to drive all out! See his max speed in this unique speed class all overseen by the SCTA.
The action and music continue with a look at the semi truck class of speed demons. Watch a double diesel engine custom modified trailer-hauler take off and blast down the salt track at over 229 MPH! That’s truckin!
Additional music by Daddy X, and The Xclan. Additional race footage provided by Mark Bruzeau landspeedracingvideo.com. and Nish Motorsports. See The Action-Hear The Music-Join The Xcorps! Close Captioned TRT-29:30 11/07
