The NHRA Safety Safari started back in the 1950 as a way to educate amateur racers on how to set up a safe drag race. This year at the 2017 SEMA Show, Chevrolet revealed a new concept truck designed to help keep racers safe on the track. Based on the capable heavy-duty 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, this unique concept truck is equipped to help keep the track safe. The NHRA’s first-line safety team’s duties include inspecting and prepping the track, assisting with firefighting in an emergency, and other safety-related events that might come up during a race. Now this Silverado 3500HD is here to help out!

This 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD NHRA Safety Safari concept is equipped for maximum capability and safety needs. Among its supporting equipment is a fire suppression system with an 80-gallon tank and a nitrogen cylinder, and an AMKUS Rescue Equipment System. The truck gets extra power from the Silverado HD’s available Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel engine. It offers 910 lb-ft of torque and a segment-leading figure of 445 horsepower. It also has a plethora of incident support materials, including shovels, brooms, fire extinguishers, jacks, a car dolly, and oil absorbent materials. Whelen red and green LED strobes and additional lighting make sure the area is clear and well-lit.
