EV WORLD: White Zombie Electric Drag Car - Cracking the 10s

He lovingly calls his 1972 Datsun 1200 coupe ' White Zombie'.

This year was no exception. For the first time since he began drag racing competitively, John "Plasma Boy" Wayland's little car not only 'cracked the 10's', it smashed straight through them. Here, in his words -- with some deft editing -- is how he and his team did it last Friday night (30 July 2010) at Portland International Raceway in Oregon.
