Is The “No Prep” Juice Worth The Squeeze? Wild Crash At Airstrip Obliterates Camaro

When it comes to the different circuits around the racing scene known as “no prep” racing where traction has proven to be more of a premium than it is a given as the surface is a bit more challenging to race on by design, people will voice their opinions in one way or the other as to why they think racers should or should not compete.
On the “should not” side of the spectrum, people argue that it’s really not worth the risk that everyone is going through as there could be major loss in both the health and money categories if one of these cars crashes which is almost a regular occurrence on a track that’s not properly prepared. On the opposite side of the spectrum, people argue that these kinds of races definitely have the fans watching and big purses that can offset that risk. It’s also hard to argue with the idea that no prep events are really helping to grow drag racing as a whole.
I guess that at the end of the day, it’s all up to the driver to pick if it’s truly worth it or not to enter themselves in such an event.
Apparently, in this race, the driver in question had weighed out his options and decided that he would participate in a no prep race at an airstrip. However, shortly after the event was over with, he probably wished that he had a time machine to go back in time with, bringing him to a point where he had never entered in the race in the first place. As things escalated, there would be a point where the scene would get pretty ugly.
In the video below, you can watch as the Chevrolet Camaro struggles for traction as the driver refuses to give up before eventually, said driver loses complete control of the car, sending it sideways and taking out a ladder before rolling over several times and coming to a stop. Luckily, no life-threatening injuries were sustained in the process but we’re going to venture that getting into racing again for the party behind this particular Chevrolet is going to be a rather expensive journey.
