Antron Brown wasn't even on the track during the final run of the 2012 NHRA Top Fuel season, but, not only did he go into the record books as this year's champion, he will also be remembered in the history of motorsports for an entirely different reason. The 36-year-old drag racer has become the first African American to win a major auto racing title in the United States after watching his teammate, Tony Schumacher, lose in the final round of the weekend at the Auto Club Finals in Pomona, Califo
Top Fuel Dragster
Watching a Top Fuel dragster hurl down the quarter mile in the low four-second mark is exciting enough, but watching the action with a high-speed camera is car porn for gear heads. Finnish magazine Tekniikan Maailma (English translation: "Technology World") embedded one of its writers with the race team, and while there is plenty of great footage of what seems to be an average race weekend, the meat of this video is from around the 2:05 mark until about 3:30.
