Phil Read Elimination round 1 at Perth Motorplex, January 29th 2011. Helmet cam view of Phil's pass. $800 worth of Nitro Methane gone in 2 minutes. Supercharger blows off and yet another fireball in the second half of the pass. Car still ran 4.90, but had more speed at half track than at the finish. Next pass was more steady and much faster - 311mph (501kph) in a virtual dead heat with Phil Lamattina. 4.806 vs 4.808. TOP FUEL is something you HAVE to experience first-hand at some stage in your life, even if just once. And if you like this clip, you'll love this one:
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.

On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
