Truckin’ Fast Wednesday: Ford Ranger Runs an 8.97
This week’s Truckin’ Fast Wednesday video features a rough-looking Ford Ranger racing against a third-generation Camaro at Pittsburgh Raceway Park.
Unfortunately, there is no information on either vehicle on the video description, but we can hear the announcer mention the Ranger has a big block Ford engine and a nitrous setup. Really, both vehicles appear to be kind of junky, but when the green light drops, we can quickly see that these two are serious sleepers.
The Ford Ranger jumps out to a quick lead and begins to pull away, but as we hear the sound of a turbo spooling up, the Camaro comes on hard for a big ending. I won’t spoil the finish for ya, but do know that the mighty Ranger was able to put down a shockingly-fast run of 8.97 seconds at 151 miles per hour!
With beat-up little trucks becoming all the rage in the drag racing world nowadays, this little Ford Ranger is one wicked race truck. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
