Diesel Wreck at the Track :RW:

This video may be a bit graphic because of the accident, but because of safety equipment, he was able to post the video.
Just a reminder to all of us, just because we're in big rigs doesn't mean we are out of the crash loop! be safe on the strip guys!

Wow man...

That video gave me goosebumps. Did you see the telephone pole go down?
Holy Crap, he is very lucky.
At first it looked loke he tried to save it wrong, but then you think about how fast he was going and you find out he wasn't used to that truck..it makes more sense.

Thanks for sharing that Nate!

later

looks like your avatar chris! haha jk jk

all jokes aside- he did try and save, but the back end was just free, so any move was multiplied drastically, as we saw. I'm glad he made his own video though! that was a nasty nasty wreck!

I know some people always feel that they don't need to worry about safety equipment.

Just food for thought, I lost a good friend in 1990 when his '67 Ford Mustang Drag Pak car,(Never licensed,original paint, stock body , original hood in the corner of the garage.) blew an engine at the end of the 1/4 and went into a guard rail at 120 mph and was killed. This car was NHRA certified and had a complete car and all the safety equipment required.

If you think it Might happen, plan on it happening.

All that can be said is that Gary is a very lucky man. I am glad to see that he is smart enough to have all of the proper safety equipment in place. There is a big thread about this accident over at CompD. I hope that all of the guys here with fast trucks or are building fast trucks will remember allof this and watch this video. I don't wanna have to read a thread here about someone being seriously hurt or worse due to a lack of safety equipment. Be safe and have fun everyone.
