Most hated Dragbike crash and aftermath video on You-Tube
Accident during testing at Brotherhood Raceway, Terminal Island, Long
beach, California. 1994
Luckily no one was seriously injured in the accident, because of the track
configuration and only having one camera at the starting there is no actual
footage of the wreck, however the coverage of the aftermath is something
that is almost never seen.
The moral of the story is to always pay attention to the race surface where
you are at, if it is unsafe DO NOT do it and always wear your protective
gear, helmet, gloves, leathers.
"Black Sunshine" was repaired and has a happy home in Utah.

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.
