Plenty of Reasons why a Heavy Foot is Bad News: Video
A few of these cars actually try to take flightby Robert Moore, on
Suffice it to say, crashing on a drag strip is obviously bad news but, for some reason, it’s wildly entertaining to see happen. Which is exactly why you’re about to watch this two-minute clip of “Wild Action,” a two-hour long compilation of more than 21 drag events from 2015.
In this clip, there are maybe 10 to 15 brief races that go haywire. Some of the drivers fail right off the start, and there is one that doesn’t even get off the line. Then there ares the ones that remind us just how important it is to have a good, quality roll cage properly installed before testing your skill on the track. There isn’t anything gruesome in the video, so don’t worry about that, but the few crashes are pretty damn wicked.
With that said, I’ll end this by saying: If you’re going to hit the track, don’t have a heavy foot. If the track is damp, wait for another day. Furthermore, if you’re pushing the kind of power that can actually make your car fly, be easy on the pedal. Or, you could install wings and glide over the finish line, but I don’t think that is acceptable for most sanctioned events. So, click play and enjoy the video!
