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.
