Top Fuel Dragster in the Classroom!

Are you interested in having your class talk directly to the men and women who build, design, and race an NHRA Top Fuel dragster?

Team Thunder and Pitsco, Inc., conduct a riveting journey into a world where schools and racing are connected by hands-on experience.

Dragster owner Sam Parton and his Team Thunder partner Jerry Porter are life-long teachers who have witnessed the need for students to relate knowledge gained in the classroom to real-life situations.
