Australian’s Do Drag Racing Different Than The Rest Of Us

Remember the scene at the end of Talladega Nights where Ricky Bobby and Jean Gerrard finish the race on foot? You probably thought what we all thought, that’s hilarious but would never actually happen in real life. Web Buzz News has released a video where human power, not horsepower determined the race winner. Australian Professional Drag Racing Series’ Thunder 400 featured 2 Bikers who’s bikes broke down. Not exactly unusual, their solution to win was. The 2 bikers in question are Maurice Allen and Ryan Learmonth and they get the Never Say Die Award. Not quitting when their bikes did they decided to finish their race Flintstone’s style. Allen crossed the line first for the most bizarre win of his career.
