Land Speed Racing at the Ohio Mile

Jaguar and 100% Hot Rod

Kris Henderson build this car with the help of friends in the 80s and has been tinkering with it and racing it ever since. In it’s current configuration, it’s running a custom built 572″ BBC with nitrous. During the Ohio Mile, Kris was trying out some new tires that were taller and skinnier. The decrease in traction was more than he was anticipating – making for a few wild passes down the 1 mile course. This video is a compilation from several views in and around the car. It is concluded with Kris going over how and why the car was built into the monster that it is today.
