Bandag Bandit

Bandag Bandit


Walcott, Iowa (IA), US
This modified 1978 Kenworth semi-truck raced at the 1988 Bonneville Salt Flats. Its 1300 horsepower twin-turbo diesel engine allowed it to reach a speed of 151 mph (243 km/h). This was one of several specialty trucks created by Tyrone Malone. Missing from this museum display is the large rear wing that provided downforce to the rear wheels.

This truck is on display at the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum, located at the world's largest truck stop. It is alongside Interstate highway 80, about 10 minutes west of Davenport.
