Jet Cars n' C Major

Not everyone enjoys the beauty of racing but there is something to be said for the boom and flair of the rockets that power the jet cars. In this moment, it is musical as they explode and sound as drums while their pyrotechnics excite the crowds then reach speeds of almost 300mph as they zoom down the track. It turns men into musicians and they become rock gods in the blink of an eye if only for about 5 seconds as they race down the speedway.
