Wild ride

There were so many gearhead events this weekend it
was almost like it’s June. Since the wife had
something planned for Sunday we caught up with what
we could via the television.

Nascar seemed to have gotten boring and we didn’t
know why. We would rather see the old school races
complete with cussing and fights.

But what I found most interesting happened down in
Gainesville, Florida at the NHRA Gater Nationals.
Larry Dixon crashed his top fuel dragster at an
estimated 260+ mph.

It looked like his rail just broke in half! Don’t
know if he has a pilot’s license but he was flying.
And he walked away from the wreck. Makes our day a
little easier to take.
Comments are always welcome.

    About the third or fourth one I’ve seen. I think it has something to do with the flex they put in the chassis.

    flex must have something to do with it, but they all flex. Probably just a freak occurrence, but it was eye opening..
