Drastic Plastic Incident
Final fuel altered pass of the evening. Gary Krause vs Troy Martin.
Troy Martin at the hit. Moments later the tires would go up in smoke and then things begin to get worse.
Troy Martin fights to regain traction, but it would be all for naught.
This is right after making initial contact with the nose of the car and the guardwall.
After nosing into the wall, the car was violently spun around resulting in the rear end making contact with the wall.
The force of the rear impact tries to pitch the altered over on it's side.
Shawn Bowen Incident
