NHRA Drag Racing John Force Crash
This was one of John Forces major accidents which happened in Memphis in
1992. The car explodes into a fireball against Al Hoffman and crosses into
his lane where John hits the barrier and into the sand trap causing the car
Drag Racing 2012 - Top Fuel Funny Cars on Sunday - NitrOlympX Hockenheim
"Flash Gordon" Smith and Jason Phelps also made their appearance on Sunday.
After their first run the team needed just about 90 minutes to
maintaninance both cars and bring 'em into the line-up. I just packed all
four runs in this one video
Due to the cancelling of all FIA classes except Top Methanol Dragsters they
have been the only Nitro cars on track on Sunday.
Gordie Smith took a more conservative approach going down the strip on
throttlestop in his first ru...pass. His second one - respectively its end
- somehow fitted in the overall picture of the whole event. However the
Funny Car just ditched the left hand wall after Gordie obviously recognised
some technical problems....whereas this whole weekend felt like going into
the wall head-on and flatout!
Rookie Jason Phelps really tested both lanes, but also after three days of
racing the "Rico Anthes Quartermile" was far off being able to cope with
the power of a Nitro car this year.
Let's just hope that some lessons have been learned and something like this
WILL NEVER EVER repeat in European Drag Racing...

COMPETITIONPLUS.TV - LOOKING BACK AT MODIFIED ELIMINATOR
In the 1970s, there was no mistaking this sound. The high-winding, heaving
flywheel grinding, gear-jamming symphony made up the orchestra of Modified
eliminator. Called blue-collar class racing, Modified thrived in NHRA
competition until it was disbanded and divided between Competition and
Super Stock. This informative, looking back video tells the Modified story
through the eyes of Mike Edwards, Vinny Barone, David Nickens, Gene Fulton
and Jerry Coley.

NHRA - Worst Top Fuel Engine Explosion Ever
Doug Herbert has proberly the worst top fuel engine explosion in history at
the 1999 NHRA Auto Club Finals at Pomona. As soon as Herbert gets on the
throttle the engine goes into a HUGE fireball at the startline leaving no
identifiable pieces of the motor left.

Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"
