NHRA Funny Car racing Melanie Troxel vs Matt Hagan at the Texas Fall Nationals 2011

I got a new cell phone last week and wanted to test out the movie feature on one of the elimination races. This race is Melanie Troxel (In & Out Solara) vs. Matt Hagan (Die Hard Charger). Hagan is late off the line then gets about 300 feet out and loses traction. Troxel starts to pull away, then drops a cylinder late in the run but hung on to take the win. I used a cell phone, NOT a hibachi grill to record this.
