HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Racers and spectators from across the nation flocked to Hub City Dragway Tuesday.
It was all a part of the Dragway's Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Blowout. Over 5,000 people attended the event which featured cars of all shapes and sizes, including a tractor trailer powered by a jet engine.
"This is a fright liner classic. We call it the extreme machine. It's the world's fastest freight liner that I know. We've run this truck in a quarter mile in as fast as 7.14 seconds, at 225 mph," said co-owner of the Extreme Machine, Joe Urban.
