Doug Foley Top Fuel Crash 2006
IHRA Canadian Nationals in September in Toronto.
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.

John Force a Cheater? (You Decide) U.S. Nationals 2009
A verbal exchange with Tony Pedregon in which Force had to be restrained
overshadowed his daughter beating Hight in the final to become the first
woman to win a U.S. Nationals title in Funny Car.
In the semifinals, with Hight needing to beat Force to knock Cruz Pedregon
out of the 10th spot in the Countdown, Force smoked his tires midway
through the run as Hight pulled away. After Tony Pedregon lost to Force
Hood in the second semifinal, he walked past Force and accused him of
losing on purpose.
"I saw the ladder. I knew if Force raced Robert what would happen," Tony
Pedregon said. "I raced with John for eight years. I know what they do. I
made some comments and it got a little exciting there. But I didn't say
anything that wasn't true.
"It's not just because it was Cruz. I would say the same thing if it was
anybody and John set up his car to lose. I understand the business. It's a
tough position John was in. But it's dirty in horse racing. It's dirty in
boxing. I'm not going to sit here and watch it and not say anything."

Scott Kalitta - Return to Racing (Post Crash Tribute)
I am saddened that after the terrible news today that Scott Lost his life
during a Qualifying run at Englishtown, that I only see videos of the crash
being posted to YouTube.
It's a pretty sad dialogue of human culture to know people would rather
view the crash that ended instead of the moments that hilight a drivers'
I filmed this clip back when I worked for Mac Tools. It is of a press
conference in which Scott Kalitta was announcing his return to racing by
way of the Mac Tools / West Coast Choppers Top Fuel Rail.
I think this video illustrates, in Scott's way, his excitement to return to
racing. I think it's important to stress that while he was taken from the
world too soon, he went out doing what he loved.
My heart felt sympathies go out to the Kalitta Families and the entire
Kalitta racing team. Rest in peace, Scott - we'll miss you.
Scott Kalitta respectful elimination pass
As a sign of respect, Robert Hight idled down the track, as Scott's team
stood in his place on the start line - one of the saddest moments I can
remember. A very touching moment for a truly great Champion.
