Doug Kerhulas' last drag race-National Trail 1984
Kerhulas' meeting with the NHRA's ill conceived aircraft style arresting
nets caused a closed head injury which ended his career. As Kerhulas' head
was thrust forward from the quick slowdown the metal cables from the top of
the net rebounded and hit him in the helmet at a very high speed.
He was a second round winner in the race.
This was Doug's last race as noted in National Dragster Magazine, cutting
short a rising career. He recovered fully from his injuries.

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."
