his video is madness. Top Fuel motorcycles, the most violent drag-racing machines on the planet, square off at a dirt strip, where they have no business being. They rip passes, a maelstrom of noise and rooster tails, for nearly five minutes. There’s no music, no announcer, no story, no fancy intro or end credits. And then, just as unceremoniously as it begins, it’s over. In a little over two years, “Top Fuel Motorcycle Dirt Drag Racing” has become the most-watched motorcycle video ever uploaded to YouTube. Search the web and you’ll find a few basic details. The video takes place somewhere in West Virginia. It was shot by a construction worker named Jeff Tomlin. Some of the bikes are pushing crazy horsepower. Still, questions linger. What is dirt drag racing? Where does the sport come from? Who are these guys, and why are they scorching earth on two-wheel widow-makers? Has internet stardom changed the scene? Looking for answers, I decided to go see Top Fuel dirt drag racing for myself. What I discovered might be the weirdest, wildest subset of motorsport in America today.
