This week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday clip features a drag race between a classic Ford Mustang and one seriously built 2001 Dodge Ram powered by a Cummins Turbo Diesel – with the Ram leaving late but still laying down an incredible quarter mile time at the big end of the track.
Now, before anyone cries foul at me including this video of a 2001 Dodge Ram seemingly getting beaten very badly by a late 60s Ford Mustang, I should point out that the notes indicate that this is a tuning run. That is probably why the Ram sat for such a long time after the Mustang left the line, but as this big Dodge gets moving hard down the track, it puts down some serious hustle. Due to the slow launch, it seems like this Ram is getting pummeled by when the Cummins powered beast crosses the line with a time of just 10.192 – it is clear that this is one seriously fast full size pickup.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy watching this Cummins Ram almost run in the 9s during a tuning run.
