    Wow, that was a runaway! I had a little one on my Arctic Cat turbo diesel when it sucked oil past the seals in the turbo, but was able to shut it down.

    Pretty wild that it still Dyno'd at over 2000 hp and 2500 ft/lbs of torque despite blowing up.

    I saw the video from an angle from the stands on the driver's side right after it happened, seemed like a long time until they got an extinguisher on it and the driver got out.

    Pretty sure they worked on it overnight and did the sled pull the next day.

    They were lucky that the nylon ratchet straps did not burn thru and have the truck take off.

    Saw pictures as no WiFi at hunting camp means slow to no download for video. For a heavily modified race truck just another day.

    Friend races stock cars very successfully. His winnings pay his expenses and an income. Owens of this truck probably made money on the loss. Good entertainment is valuable. Will watch it later.

    Got it to load at camp. We both enjoyed that “blow”.

    You play you gotta pay. Impressive.
