In this week’s segment of Rides with Jay Thomas, Jay gets an up close look at a top dragster.

Bill Franck has owned this car for around a year and has a knack for going fast. This dragster is built for straight line speed. Just wait until you hear what it can run in the quarter mile. On Rides, if it’s cool, it has a motor and you can drive it, it can be on the show.

"Rides" is hosted by radio personality, Minnesota native and North Dakota resident Jay Thomas. The show features cool cars or just about anything with an engine. Know of a ride in the region that Jay's just got to see? Email him at
