Pyro professional to make some noise at Z-Max

CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) -

If you happen to be up for some explosive action on Friday night, you might want to head to Z-Max Dragway in Concord. Along with the Carlyle Tools NHRA Nationals high speed action, fans will be treated to a pyrotechnics show that will literally shake their seats.

Randy Bast and his company High-Tech Special Effects are prepping the strip already with enough explosive material to shoot flames well above the height of the stands. Thursday, Bast and his team set up a demo. The blasts are controlled by an electronic control system that runs into upright canisters filled with explosives.

It's certainly not a fireworks show, as the fireballs created by the blasts can reach 50 feet wide. "You're going to feel it," Bast said of the fan experience, "It's going to shake stuff and rumble the ground."
