1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
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.

Doug Kerhulas' last drag race-National Trail 1984
Kerhulas' meeting with the NHRA's ill conceived aircraft style arresting
nets caused a closed head injury which ended his career. As Kerhulas' head
was thrust forward from the quick slowdown the metal cables from the top of
the net rebounded and hit him in the helmet at a very high speed.
He was a second round winner in the race.
This was Doug's last race as noted in National Dragster Magazine, cutting
short a rising career. He recovered fully from his injuries.
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.

Toyota on Wednesday announced that it will deal with the problem of
potential accelerator pedal entrapment involving eight of its vehicle
models, including the 2004-'09 Toyota Prius, by taking a number of steps.
It will reconfigure the accelerator pedal and, in some cases, the shape of
the floor surface under the pedal. It also will install a brake override
system on five models as an "extra measure of confidence" and then
incorporate the system into "new production of most models by the end of
2010," it said in a statement. The issue affects 3.8 million vehicles....
