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 do, drivers will keep going straight and avoiding the walls. There are a number of bad situations that could end up in one’s lap here.
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. It’s not something that I think any racer would really wish on any other racer. However, it’s definitely something that does unfold every once in a while.
Luckily, most of the time, thanks to all of the high-tech safety equipment that we have access to these days, 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.
In this Tom Eighty video, we get an up-close view of the action. This one has cars flying through the air, rolling over, and doing just about everything that you don’t want to do on race day. Luckily, all the drivers were able to walk away here but It’s definitely an adrenaline rush, to say the least. It’s kind of hard to imagine immersing yourself behind the wheel in some of these cases.
