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.
