Out of control dragster almost lands on top of photographer

December 15th, 2009

Take a look at this picture and video of a funny car dragster driven by Steve Gasparrelli that loses control right after the launch at Pomona Raceway in California. The car appears to lose traction on one side and immediately turns right and heads over to the barrier wall. The barrier wall did it’s job and the car wasn’t able to flip over it, although the entire chassis flipped upside down while the top of the car stayed in place. Photographer Andy Willsheer kept taking photos as he stepped back while the dragster came just a few feet from landing on top of him.
