Most hated Dragbike crash and aftermath video on You-Tube
Accident during testing at Brotherhood Raceway, Terminal Island, Long
beach, California. 1994
Luckily no one was seriously injured in the accident, because of the track
configuration and only having one camera at the starting there is no actual
footage of the wreck, however the coverage of the aftermath is something
that is almost never seen.
The moral of the story is to always pay attention to the race surface where
you are at, if it is unsafe DO NOT do it and always wear your protective
gear, helmet, gloves, leathers.
"Black Sunshine" was repaired and has a happy home in Utah.

Eyewitness-1971 Jet Car Crash Dallas International Motor Speedway
For full version of story go to my blog at:
My memories of the day: There had been showers that morning and the sky
was still a dull gray when I arrived at the Dallas International Motor
Speedway. I was working part time for KTVT Channel 11 in Ft. Worth and had
been assigned to shoot Art Arfons' 280-mph jet-powered dragster as he tried
to better the world quarter mile land speed record. His new two seat "Super
Cyclops" was scheduled to make 3 runs, the first, with a WFAA-TV news man.
As the car approached the line I pressed the shutter release. The ground
was shaking and the sound was painful but even after hearing the incredible
roar from the roll up I wasn't prepared when the Super Cyclops blasted into
that quarter mile run. It parted my hair! The first thought in my mind was,
there's no way I'd get in that car... My God, it could go straight up as
easily as forward. I stayed with the shot, following the jet down the
asphalt for the 6.01 seconds it took to reach the finish line and then
beyond. The jet shut down and immediately there was the blue smoke of
skidding rubber and wreckage flying. Then, farther down the strip, a column
of smoke. I jumped through a break in the guardrail, and ran toward the
As I got nearer I rolled film on a man who was crying and I asked if he was
OK? He couldn't speak but gestured to a pile of debris down the track. As I
ran closer I began to see it was a human torso scattered among several
other body parts. After reaching a little over 183 MPH the dragster had
blown a tire, spun 180 degrees and slammed through the guardrail on Thomas'
side, striking a track worker with such force that it propelled him into
another worker killing him as well. The carnage was overwhelming but I shot
the scene as best as I could playing down the grim details I knew would
never air anyway. I had shot all 100 feet of film but had another tin in my
pocket as I and a young still photographer started to run the several
hundred feet farther down the track to the burning jet car wreckage.
As we ran a car pulled in front of us, blocking our way, and several large
security guys jumped out and backed us into a retaining wall. One of the
men demanded we give him our cameras and to my surprise the young still
photographer complied. The man immediately opened the back, pulled out the
film and exposed it to the light. Although I was out of film I had
pretended to shoot the man as soon as he got out of the car and was still
doing so when he turned to me. The Bell and Howell's handy leather strap
made it a pretty good club as I backed against the wall and raised the
camera above my head. "I'm dropping the first guy that touches me", I
warned. I wasn't the biggest guy in that group but I sure wasn't the
littlest either. I was going to be a lot more trouble than that young guy
with the still camera. They didn't come any closer and I agreed to stop
taking pictures of them as more people arrived on the scene to see what was
going on. A truce of sorts was worked out when the security man contacted
the control tower about the situation. He talked in front of me on the
radio to a supervisor who told them not to touch me or the camera and
politely asked me to return to the tower with them. I agreed.
In the office I was met by Mike Landess who was working part time at WFAA
and freelancing as PR for the track. There were several other people in the
room who seemed to be speedway officials. They didn't demand the film but
wanted to talk to my boss at Channel 11 and I gave them the number. I heard
the conversation as they threatened to sue the station if we showed
anything inappropriate. After several minutes they handed the phone to me
and I was told to get shots of the wrecked car and then get back to the
station with the film as quick as possible. The security people took me
back to the crash site and I got my final shots. The story aired that night
and the station never was sued.
Not long after the crash I was filming an interview with Harry Reasoner,
then of ABC, at the Dallas Press Club when I ran into Travis Lynn, the news
director at WFAA-TV. I'd been making the rounds of all the TV stations that
summer trying to move up the news ladder, so Travis knew who I was. He
complimented my work on the jet car crash and offered me a job at channel
8. This after telling me just a few weeks earlier that I needed more
experience. I worked there for three years often with Mike Landess who I
met at the track office and later worked with at KBTV. He's now an
anchorman at KMGH in Denver.
So that's how it happened, my first TV news job in a major market. Although
I took his picture, I never met, Ch 8's, Gene Thomas but his career ended
the day mine really began. Life and death... My, how we blunder along. In
the news business you're confronted with that over and over. After awhile
you begin to see it's just part of the story.
The 2012 Fastest Street Car in America! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 19
This episode of HOT ROD Unlimited screams with action from 200-mph street
cars at one of the most grueling events in all of motorsports: HOT ROD Drag
Week, presented by Gear Vendors. This is the most brutal test anywhere of
real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for
1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days
in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week.
The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. In this
video, we'll follow the chase for that title in Drag Week's most outrageous
class, called Unlimited. Imagine cars that run 7 seconds in the quarter
mile, in excess of 200 mph, and then drive on public roads—in the rain,
over potholes, whatever it takes—to make it to the next race day to do it
again. Five times. Ever see a 2,800-horsepower car hauling its
own trailer full of tools and parts? You will here. When you wonder how the
staff of HOT ROD could ever make the statement that a Lamborghini Aventador
"isn't $400,000 fast," this video will prove why with legit American street
cars in a battle of speed and survival.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
