World Of Speed - Portland, OR

World of Speed was kind enough to bring in local automotive journalists to check out their museum, prior to it's grand opening on April 24, 2015. Below are a few images to get a taste of the place. 

Mickey Thompson's 400 MPH quad engined Challenger I.

Great display for getting a feel of various banked speedways.

Top Fuel Dragsters

A hand, yes hand, fuel pump. Imagine driving at grip's limit and having to maintain fuel pressure. 

Great display of the history of land speed records.
