Dragster Gets Loose After Getting Oil Under The Tires, Which Ends Up Causing An Insane Crash!
September 21st, 2017
Drag racing doesn't come without risks and when racing is done in smaller dragster style cars, it's even riskier because of the small and light frame. In a regular drag car, that could almost double as a street car, the drivers have the luxury of having a roll cage within the body. However in cars like what's seen in this video, there isn't really much protection to protect the drivers from out of control accidents which sometimes occur.
According to the description, the dragster that crashed apparently got loose after it got some oil under the tires. This caused the driver to lose complete control of the vehicle resulting in crashing into the side guard rail, catching on fire and flipping into a rolling fireball which looked absolutely INSANE!! Thankfully the driver was reported to be OK but it definitely looked like an extremely bad and shocking crash.
Crashes like this occur from time to time in drag racing, with each scenario and cause being different. It's a pretty wild sport! What do you think about this video? Do you have any thoughts or opinions? Let us know in the comments what you think about it and what you think exactly happened.
