Crank it up.
For 60 years the world’s best drag racers have gathered in the shadows of the San Gabriel Mountains to bring a new season to life. As each winter comes to a close, the NHRA emerges from the darkness to reintroduce the most visceral motorsport on the planet.
This…is The Awakening.

Even the best modern gimbals available today have a difficult time creating smooth motion in the extreme conditions that drag racing has to offer, so React104 put in the work in Adobe After Effects to do heavy post-production smoothing to save batches of otherwise unusable footage.

One of the main goals for reintroducing the sport was to give viewers a reminder of just how visceral NHRA Drag Racing is. React104 honed in on this concept by showcasing dynamic camera angles paired with some of the most immersive audio ever recorded for 11,000 horsepower nitro-burning hemis.
