While I have seen a great many Cummins powered Dodge Ram pickups at the drag strip, I don’t think that I have ever seen one performing coal rollin’ exhibitions – especially on what appears to be the return road while cars are going down the track. Based on the comments, this Ram is participating in a rollin’ coal contest at the Dirty Mo…A.K.A Mooresville Dragstrip in Mooresville North Carolina.
Even though I wouldn’t condone this kind of contest during racing, this Cummins Ram certainly puts on one hell of a smoke show as it edges slowly along the return road. This red second gen Dodge Ram 2500 pours smoke into the sky and the most excited person is the announcer – who is clearly blown away by this exhibition of diesel soot creation. For roughly 50 seconds, this Ram blasts smoke skyward and it does so in stunning fashion, with the column of soot never faltering and never fading until the driver shuts her down at the end of the run.
Make sure that you have your speakers cranked up to hear both the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine screaming and the track announcer screaming just as much.
