Sidewinder Dakota: Building it

This video shows the Banks team dynoing the engine and building the truck. The truck went on to become the World's Fastest Pickup.


Gale Banks has pulled more power out of diesel engines than just about anyone-from motorhomes to record-breaking Bonneville salt racers. Banks has a history of breaking things-particularly speed records. Throughout the years, he has earned trophies at the Bonneville Salt Flats for the world's fastest pickup, fastest piston-engine automobile, and fastest passenger car. And those are just a few of his record-setting achievements.
