5 Speedy Trailer Pull Sightings

Offbeat

Speed is a surprisingly relevant word when describing trucks towing trailers.

Most people never, ever go fast when driving a truck connected to a trailer. Obvious safety reasons aside, it's usually not possible to go fast while connected to a trailer anyway. That being said, there are many people who love to push their trailer-toting trucks to the limit, mashing on the gas pedal in an attempt to go as quick as possible while towing as much as possible. If you're a truck guy, or gal, then continue below to check out all of these speedy trailer pull sightings.

The driver of this Ford forgot to turn on his 4WD before he did his trailer tow run. It's a lucky thing for him that he wasn't racing anyone. The only thing he lost was some tread on his tires and his pride.

This video shows Diesel Power's successful attempt to break the world land speed record for a vehicle towing a trailer. Yes, that's a thing. Skip to the 4:50 mark to watch a GMC 2500 HD (highly modified, obviously) hit 141.998 miles while towing a trailer.

Should you ever get into a high-speed chase while in a truck hitched to a trailer, you'd better hope you're driving a Tundra. Doing 0 to 60 in 14.18 seconds while towing an 8,500-pound trailer is quite the accomplishment.

True, this video doesn't feature trucks towing trailers, but when's the last time you watched two tow trucks race? 'Never' is most likely the answer to come from the majority of our readers. Try not to let the excitement lull you to sleep.

If you can't get enough of trailer tows (who can?), then this clip will be right up your alley. The guy in this video gets a heck of a lot better start than the trucker in the first trailer tow video.
