I believe a moment of silence and/or prayer is in order for these two and their family.

Confused?

How did it "flip over and shoot back" to the starting line, going 250 mph?

Did it flip over 180* at the end of the 1/4 mile, landing right side up and parallel with the lane, with the throttle stuck at WOT and then ran back toward the starting line, crashing into the parked chase car? To get to 250 mph, it had to been at the end of the 1/4 mile before running back to the starting line.

Was it caught on tape? Ed

I don't want to sound cold, but if you wish to avoid being killed prematurely, I would suggest staying out of slinky cars that go 250 MPH in a quarter of a mile.

Same goes for slamming into walls of oval tracks at 200 MPH, being beat in the head by a 250 lb man, skydiving, or any other "thrilling" activity.

My thoughts exactly...but there are still two dead people that were doing what a lot of us wish we were doing...

I am sure the specifics will be shown to us at due time.

Scared? We used to run down the highway at speeds anywhere from 150 to 200 before we even knew what speed ratings on tires were. It's the thrill.

It's called risk. If you take greater risks, then your chances of becoming humus a little too soon is increased.

The greatest thrill in my life is my 3 year old singing me a song and giving me a hug at night. I'll try to make the life I have last as long as it can.

I couldn't agree more. Nothing like being called "Daddy". I have four girls 14,9,7 and 3. Ed

I couldn't agree more, but our time on this planet has already been written. When that time is up...goodbye.

I am praying for the family of this driver...I hope you are.

I didn't hear a thing about this until I read this thread, Id figure I would have heard it all over the place since it happened not to far from here. Its sad that something like that could happen.
