Why let the Tesla Model S and X steal all the drag racing spotlight?

Martin Loog, owner of a Nissan LEAF, decided that it was time to get his electric taxi car out on the track to challenge one of the big boys (a Dodge Charger Hemi).

How did the LEAF fare? Umm...totally destroyed the Charger as expected.  But at least now, no one can accuse InsideEVs of not spreading around the racing love to all EVs.
