Drag racing, while arguably among the most fun that you can have on wheels, also comes with risk. Some bad things could potentially unfold if something goes wrong. On any given pass, no matter if we’re talking a professional driver or just the casual enthusiast looking to get a new personal best at test and tune, there are a lot of factors coming together in one bundle. They all have to align just perfectly. If they don’t, there are a number of bad situations that could end up in one’s lap.
Everything from how a car is running and containing fluids all the way to the way that the track is prepared or how any mess is cleaned up could alter a driver’s course. This could potentially call for a more dangerous route. Drag racing takes not only a lot of talent but also a lot of trust. The driver needs to trust, their crew, their equipment, and those responsible for the track.
Luckily, most of the time, thanks to all of the high-tech safety equipment, people are able to keep themselves out of harm’s way if something does happen. It’s still incredibly scary to watch vehicles roll over in epic crashes, though. This time, we’re checking out some of the most epic crashes and close calls that the sport has to offer.
