Antron Top Fuel crash

Blew out both rear tires when the engine let go, then he was along for the ride.







He won the round, though...

I'm glad he was ok but did ESPN really need to show the replay like 50 times and 50 isn't an exaggeration.

They did the same thing when John Force had his bad crash. I remember watching his feet/legs dangling when the car came apart.

I bet that new Canopy helped keep a little sand out.

Relatively speaking he walked away a hurting unit.In yrs to come his body will haunt him for that wreck for the rest of his life.See the guys on the side of the track running for cover??. NHRA should never allow people that close during a 300 mph run.never!!!

He s trying out for the Don Garlits part in a movie. The requirement is upside down and backwards, on fire at 300 MPH.
He walked (sort of ) away , But Like gary 1 says he will be a hurtin puppy in the years to come. After a few crashes and flying over cars without a motorcycle I resemble that remark.

Me and my two kids stop by her store one day just to shoot the bull with her and she told my son to come back the next day and she would have something for him..

She gave him this..

Another one I had the chance to spend a little time at their shop was Candies & Hughes they had a shop 25 Mins from my house,,,, Now you should have seen the inside of their shop.. Very nice.. Good people too..

I think she was a little faster then that... Maybe not on the bike on the poster..

she scored her 42nd career pole position and more importantly set the national Pro Stock Motorcycle elapsed time record with a 6.871 second run..

and 41 career wins.

I know this much about her... SHE ISN'T SCARED TO PUT THE HAMMER DOWN..
