Pommy Steve Read in the 4th round of Top Fuel qualifying at the 2008 Fuchs Australian Nationals, WSID, Australia. His run appeared to be a stout one, but no time was recorded. Unfortunately his throttle jammed open after the finish line with terrible consequences. HE crashed into the sand trap and safety net.
Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
Doug Foley Top Fuel Crash 2006
Foley's car went into a wheelstand, then lost traction when he pedaled it
and the front came down. The car then turned sideways, crossing the
centerline at the 330-foot marker. He managed to get the car pointed down
the track, but the rear slammed into the left wall hard, breaking the
chassis just ahead of the driver's foot box. Both pieces slid back across
the track together and there was a big fireball when the fuel tank hit the
wall. The nose of the car came to rest on the centerline, near the finish
line, while the heavier engine and driver capsule slid along the wall,
coming to a stop about 300 feet past the finish line.

Top Fuel Dragster Helmet Cam - Phil Read
Phil Read Elimination round 1 at Perth Motorplex, January 29th 2011. Helmet
cam view of Phil's pass. $800 worth of Nitro Methane gone in 2 minutes. Supercharger blows off and yet another
fireball in the second half of the pass. Car still ran 4.90, but had more
speed at half track than at the finish. Next pass was more steady and much
faster - 311mph (501kph) in a
virtual dead heat with Phil Lamattina. 4.806 vs 4.808. TOP FUEL is
something you HAVE to experience first-hand at some stage in your life,
even if just once. And if you like this clip, you'll love this one:

Top Fuel dragster racing a stock vehicle!
Mike Dunn used Doug Herbert's Top Fuel dragster to race a brand new Pontiac
G6 to show just how quick a T/F dragster accelerates.
The dragster is only on the throttle for 1 second and the Pontiac is FULL
THROTTLE for the entire length of the track and it still cant catch the
coasting Top Fuel dragster!
THE POINT OF THIS VIDEO IS NOT HOW SLOW THE STOCK VEHICLE IS...... IT'S
ABOUT HOW QUICK THE T/F DRAGSTER ACCELERATES!
Worst Drag Race Crash EVER!!! (MUST WATCH!!!)
