Looked like the driver was shacken up, I would be after that. It sure did hurt his check book.

Wow....makes you count your blessings!!
I should......every pass could be the one. You never know when something can go wrong. You hope it never does.

I had a bike wreck BEHIND me at the track. I left, he hesitated, launched, lost control and ended up crashed in lane BEHIND me. Luckily I was gone, or he would have felt 4000 lbs of car!!

While checking the video I was trying to determine what happened. It looked okay, but then turned right. This would leave me to believe he lost right axle, or if he had a posi unit, it let go. This in turn would overpower the left wheel and send it aburtly right. The one reason I don't believe in "posi's or limited slips" for drag racing.

He may have hit some oil on the track too, and this would have created the same scenario. Loss of traction on right side...thus aiming that way.

I've watched a few guys have bad days like that at my local strip. Never a good deal.

Good looking chevy. Why wasn't the driver wearing flame retardant gloves?
