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.

Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories. Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina. Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season. "This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him. "In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through." Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title. "Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them," he said.

Rock Crawler - Stuck Throttle
A rock crawler with mechanical problems causes a few spectators to soil themselves.





Gas Pedal Stuck at 110 mph
As I was shifting into 4th at the drag strip my engine started hitting the rev limiter and wouldn't let me get it into 4th. As you can see the RPM's were pegged at 7,000+ plus and wouldn't stop so I took the keys out of the ignition as I didn't want to blow my motor. Not knowing exactly why this happened I thought I would try it again, but to no avail it shot straight back to 7,000 rpm. I was met by the track manager who told me I needed to clear it off the track. So, after I pushed my car back a 1/4 mile by myself to our crew spot I tried to diagnose the problem. After discovering that my throttle body was stuck in the full open position I dug a little further. It turns out that my Gas Pedal was stuck on my carpet to the floor. So all that was needed was a notch cut out of my carpet. If I can give anyone advice ALWAYS make sure to get your recalls fixed by taking it in for service... This video features my 2004 Mustang Cobra.
