2012 NHRA Matt Hagan Explosion in Charlotte
Funny Car driver Matt Hagan suffered an engine explosion following his
first session of qualifying at zMax Dragway back in 2012. Hagan was unhurt
in the incident.

When the stars line up in front of me, I just have to record it.
I have no choice.
And this was one of those moments.
I don't know if this will ever happen again. I certainly hope it will--and
in front of the grandstands at some selected NHRA events. For you see, you
just don't see this happening at all-- when you look back at how unlikely
it is that the car and the driver would still be around in 2012!
Take the driver, Don Prudhomme. How many times did he make full passes in
a top fuel dragster or funny car? And for how many years?
In short, it's a miracle that he is in one piece, after all that--and he
is! Thank goodness!
Then the car:
The Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster, built by Kent Fuller and raced
from 1962 through 1964, with the original partners, it ran up an incredible
record at southern California tracks of 81 wins and only 8 loses!
(According to Phil Burgess) Then lengthened--bought and raced as the
"Bonanza" for a while, eventually stripped of it's motor and left sitting
for years. Restored by Steve Davis, bought by Bruce Meyer--How likely is
it that it would be allowed to join up with "Snake" for this moment?
Pretty unlikely--except that it's owner Bruce Meyer, is a good friend of
Don's, and after hearing about Rick MacDonald, they gave him the nod to
bring the car to the track, and push start it to life. Now the driver
could have been someone else....but it wasn't.
That's what makes this fire up so significant.
And like I said: All we can do is hope that this mind blowing moment will
happen again at a track near you.
And if you hear they are coming, better "Make the Scene". For the chance
may not come again.
Like an old legendary cowboy on a white horse in your local parade. And
all you need to do is what you did when you were a kid: Sit on the curb
and watch him go by.

Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
