NHRA – Cruz Pedregon’s funny car does an incredible 1/8th to 1/4 mile wheelstand

We’ve seen some pretty insane things happen in between the walls at NHRA events and with the speeds that these guys reach, the action is usually nothing short of an adrenaline pumping slobber knocker that really tends put you back in your seat.
When driving at over 200 mph, one false move could mean complete destruction and potentially hardcore injury to match but when it comes to experienced driver, Cruz Pedregon, his half track wheelstand was handled with complete confidence that allowed both himself and the car to make it out alive.
It’s truly the purest rush that you will experience as the car pulls the front end up at around the eighth mile and doesn’t set down until after the quarter mile finish line. The announcer calls the action just right, saying that if the driver didn’t keep his composure this could’ve ended much worse and probably would have for a less experienced driver.
We aren’t really sure how he managed to keep this thing rolling in a straight line but I guess that’s something that you can to do this for yourself when you check out all of the action as pictured below. In this display, Cruz is nothing short of a machine.
MUST watch AMAZING Funny Car run! Cruz Pedregon's car lifts forcing Cruz to drive through the finish line in the air winning the round AND keeping his composure. #NHRAonFOX now on FS1.
