I’ve been to the races before and I rather enjoy them but I can’t say I have ever witnessed something this heart stopping.
A drag racer named Mike Bowman during a qualifying heat this past Saturday topped 410 km per-hour when the chutes were released, they got tangled up. As pointed out in the video the driver tried to use his brake to slow down, but not nearly enough!
He’s okay though, because the car eventually barreled into a sand trap and a massive net at the end of the track. I admit I do have a small need for speed. The thought of going as fast as these drag cars go might be a little much for me.
How about you? Do you like “fast”? Comment below let me know!
