Pro Mod Crash NHRA: Rickie Smith/Pete Farber
Rickie Smith gets loose at the finish line and has awful looking crash with Pete Farber during the second round of Pro Modified qualifying during the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals. While Pete was able to walk away without injury, Rickie wasn't as lucky as he suffered a broken knee cap in the accident.
WORLDS FASTEST BLOWER CAR - Frankie Taylor 5.47@263mph
Frankie and Paul Taylor in their Larry Jeffer's Built Outlaw Pro Mod Corvette. This video features all of Frankie's record breaking passes from the Street Car Super Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis. Frankie actually set a new 1/4 mile ET World Record on the first hit off of the trailer and then traded the record back and forth with the Q80 Twin turbo Camaro driven Turky Al Zafiri. The two cars met up in the finals where they laid down the Worlds Fastest side by side Pro Mod race of all time as both cars actually broke the World Record ET and MPH. The turbo car leaves with the ET and MPH World Record but Frankie Taylor is still the quickest and fastest blown Pro Mod on the planet. Hats of to entire Taylor Family Racing Team.
