So you want to be an off road race truck driver?

Sorry for the off topic post, but I thought any truck enthusiast could appreciate this one.......I was at the Crandon Off Road Championships this weekend. I happened to see a wreck into turn 1 just like this one, but didn't catch it on video. They are hitting turn 1 at 100 mph, it's quite a rush for any race fan.

These guys have big brass ones!

That second one is an excellent example of why you should have window nets while racing. If not for the net both of his arms would have been out of that window and completely F'd.

Agreed, with the g forces spinning him, he was along for the ride. These trucks are pretty amazing....if you haven't seen them in person they put out 800 HP, and sound like an Indy car.....lots of power....not oil burners tho.

Guy in the second vid should have kept his hands out of the wheel, good way to do some damage. You can't do any steering at that point, best to keep your hands clear.
