Barry Nicholson Goes For One Of The Wildest Crashes In Street Outlaws History

When it comes to throwing down in a drag race, nobody really knows what’s going to happen. With just the slightest change in course, a driver can go from a pass that would have been a record-setting best to one that puts that driver into the wall. This quickly ends those dreams that you had of racing supremacy. It ends up bringing the world down in a cruel and harsh way.
This time, the stage was set as Street Outlaws would have a pair of awesome machines going head-to-head. As we would later find out, things wouldn’t quite go as according to plan. That aforementioned unexpected change of plans happens to come to light as Barry Nicholson wouldn’t be able to make this thing turn around in his favor.
It looks like, pretty much right off of the bat, this pass was headed in the wrong direction. It was rather sketchy as it looked like the car almost immediately refused to stay straight. The sway would look to get worse and worse from there until eventually, the machine would end up veering off of the street. As it made its way to the ditch, the car would roll over several times.
Nicholson wouldn’t be able to make it out unscathed. In fact, he would end up in the hospital, pretty seriously injured. Instead of letting it put him out of the game, Nicholson would keep moving forward, eventually building a new car and getting back into racing. At the time, the accident was rather scary. Even watching this one today gives us an adrenaline rush and then some.
The video down below that shows off the extent of the hard-to-watch situation. In the moment, this was certainly a breathtaking instance. Now that we see where the cards have fallen, we can watch this one without being so on edge!
