An Australian driver is in shock, feeling ``numb'', after his drag racer slammed into a crowd in the United States, killing six people.
Queenslander Troy Critchley, 36, was driving in a charity event in Selmer, Tennessee, on Saturday, when his drag racing car skidded off the road and into hundreds of spectators, who were not protected by guard rails.
Two girls aged 15 and one aged 17 were among the six killed as Critchley performed an ``exhibition burnout'' - when a drag racer spins his tyres to make them heat up and smoke - at a Cars for Kids charity event.
Up to 18 more were injured in the collision, which sent bodies ``flying into the air'', said Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks.
Amateur video of the crash showed the car's engine revving loudly before the vehicle sped down a highway in a cloud of smoke. After a few hundred metres the car skidded off the road.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and
only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a
grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike
Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan
them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi
failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a
fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous
Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle.
The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot
rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer,
Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every
compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out!
Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December
5th with a new video premiering each day!
