Drag Racing A Car 2
We decided to go back to the St. Thomas Dragway and try drag racing the rental car again. This time he had the car hooked up and ready for Nitrous. My dad got to try out the Nitrous but I never got a chance too this time, but hopefully I will next time. The guy that owns the car liked the last video I made and was wondering if I could make more of a promotion type video for him, so I did. Thats why this video is more promotion like then the last one.
The company is Derkzen Motorsports and guys name is Erik Derkzen. His site is www.derkzenmotorsports.com if anyone living in the southern ontario, canada area wants to check it out and maybe race the car themselves.
