Guy Narrowly Escapes Death In Roll Over Contest
October 27th, 2017
Riverhead Raceway on Long Island is notorious for crazy events and crashes. Like the roll over contest in this video from RCR 37. The objective of the event is basically get yourself a junker and roll it as many times as possible before it dies.
This guy is definitely doing that except he came a little too close to actually dying himself. The original description reports that the seatbelt broke but whatever happened, the driver went plunging through the windshield and luckily, walked away unhurt. Check it all out on PowerNationtv.com
This week on PowerNation Katie welcomes hot rod builder Steve Legens of Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martin, Tennessee. And with him a gorgeous 1960 Ford truck! One very interesting change Steve’s team made to the pickup was to the side trim; Ford never ran it down the entire side, but now that long strip of chrome trim looks fantastic.
They dropped in a Coyote engine with a Borla fuel injection making about 510 horsepower. The Schott Wheels are a nice touch. There’s no missing the custom PPG red paint they call “Cardinal Red” because owner Jeff Perkins is a huge Cardinal’s fan! Inside distressed Pecan color leather seats and a Tan interior, plus with stock gauges give the truck that vintage look. One beautifully restored truck inside and out, front to back. Check it out this week on PowerNation.
