Rickie Smith gets loose at the finish line and has awful looking crash with Pete Farber during the second round of Pro Modified qualifying during the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals. While Pete was able to walk away without injury, Rickie wasn't as lucky as he suffered a broken knee cap in the accident.
On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
