x275 Insanity: Can You Tell You Won This Matchup Between Jacky McCarty And Rich Bruder

(By Jason Mazzotta) – Drag racing is all about close racing, and this is a great video that shows a tight race in the X275 Drag Radial Class. The two extremely evenly matched Mustangs of Jacky McCarty and Rich Bruder, faced off in the semi-final round of X275 at the X275 Shootout at Holly Springs Motorsports in Mississippi. The two turbocharged Mustang’s ran a tight race that was only separated by 0.005 seconds at the finish line. Multiple angles from both cars and the starting line give just about every perspective of the race, and provides a different feeling from each vantage point.

With a .035 reaction time advantage McCarty was out front trying to hold off Bruder who behind by about 0.042 at the 60 foot mark. By the 330 foot mark, Bruder had made up some ground and with more mph was trying to run down McCarty, who was trying to hold on to his starting line advantage.

It is hard to distinguish who wins after watching the race from the view of both cars. When riding along with McCarty it seems he may have held off Bruder, but when riding along with Bruder it seem he may have had enough to pull around McCarty at the stripe.

Check out the tight semi-final action, and call it for yourself:

    For years, always hated 1/8 mile drags until I went to the YellowBullet Nats a few years ago. Certainly change my opinion!

    Beats the NHRA competition by a mile!
