Looking around the hardcore-strewn truck park there are loads of interesting and unlikely cars here. Everything from a Prius, which would go on to win the 100mph class, to a very non-stock 1969 Chevy Camaro, which won the Unlimited Class at an average speed of 185.97mph.
This is a special time and place for Hennessey as it's the 20th anniversary of his first-ever run in this race. In 1991 he brought his self-tuned Mitsubishi GTO here and, with no formal driver training whatsoever, blitzed the field to come first overall at an average of 168mph.
