Amarillo Mike Collides With The 55 at Redemption 13!!!

While you’re out there drag racing, you never really know what’s going to happen. One moment things might be going as according to plan and the next, well, your plan becomes unhinged, sending you for quite a wild ride as you can do nothing but hang on and hope for the best. It’s something that you never wish on any racer but sometimes, losing control is simply unavoidable as putting down that much power to any surface is something that’s incredibly difficult to do right and, when all the factors don’t line up in a row, can definitely be an easy situation to lose control of, leaving fate in the hands of inertia.
This time, we catch up with just that situation as things get a little bit scary when a couple of cars that you might recognize line up at the Redemption 13 no prep event. If you’re not familiar with how a no prep works, essentially, it adds yet another level of complication to the mix, removing track preparation that normally creates a level of stickiness to help the tires plant themselves to the ground, however, without that in place, we see a lot more cars sliding around out there including Mike Murillo in Dragula as he ends up skidding, out of control, and into the path of the The 55 that’s in the next lane over.
If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll find quite the hellacious video the cars end up kissing as they end up making the most of the bad situation. Luckily, the only damage to be found after the fact was a bent header collector. When you’re racing in a situation like that, I’m not sure that you could possibly get much luckier. There’s no telling how bad that one could have gotten but the drivers managed to keep their cool and really minimize the damage.
