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.

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.

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!

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.
