MAXIME LAPOINTE GOT SE­RI­OUS HANG TIME WHILE LAUNCH­ING HIS KW AT THE RE­CENTLY HELD TRUCK PULLING AND AC­CEL­ER­A­TION COM­PE­TI­TION IN ST. JOSEPH DEBEAUCE, QUE­BEC. At this event, rac­ers hook up to a trailer con­tain­ing 15 tons of sand, and at the green, they charge up the 9% in­cline of St. Cather­ine Street for 700 feet. These big rigs are de­vel­op­ing well over 2,000 hp, and when run­ning bob­tail are knock­ing on the 100-mph bar­rier. For more info, go to Bi­grig­dra­grac­ing.com.
