Default Datsun Crash at Strip

This was a crash in the 10 sec index class at street wars. My buddy was able to get it frame by frame. The driver was perfectly ok and actually help flip the car back over.

it was very close that would made it worse by ten fold. I'd say they missed by less than 20"

More reason to wear diapers or have vinyl seats while dragging at the strip!
