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.

INSANE Top Fuel NHRA Throttle Blip!!!
Warming up a Top Fuel Dragster in the pits at the NHRA O'Reilly Fall Nationals 9/19/2008 Texas Motorplex . Words can't describe what this is like unless you've experienced it first hand. When the camera shakes at 53 seconds it's not because the sound scared me...when they blip the throttle it literally sends out a shock wave that shakes EVERYTHING!!! Freaking Love Top Fuel!!!
