Dan Scheid And His Awesome Diesel Dragster Are racing toward another drag racing milestone: first diesel to run a 6-second 200-mph quarter-mile. At a test-n-tune session on Friday night for the recently rained-out OBX Outlaw Race, the Scheid dragster driven by Bo Layne ran an incredible 4.61 at 153 mph in the eighth-mile. Already the digger has run 7.31 seconds at 189 mph in the quarter-mile with a 4.70-second eighth-mile time, so the Scheid boys are getting mighty close. There are already numerous other six-second-capable dragsters in the works, so look for some stiff competition to emerge. But for now, this bad-in-black dragster is the ride to beat.
NEWS FLASH: Right before we went to press, Bo Layne and Dan Scheid teamed up to set a new personal best of 7.09 at 195 mph!
