The good the bad and the ugly, a racers nightmare
Bakersfield March Meet 03/06/15
During the first morning session the racers nightmare happened. after a good burn out. The cars come up and stage. A Chevelle in the tower lane and a Dart in the far lane. The tree comes down and the Chevelle launches in a wheel stand. The bar in the back is dragging the ground and a shower of sparks are seen behind the Chevelle. As the Chevelle comes back down the front end hits hard. Soon after all wheels are back on the ground the Chevelle makes an instant left turn crossing the center line.
The Chevelle is out ahead of the Dart. Everything from there out was like slow motion. You could see the Chevelle's front wheels are turned to the right but the cars keeps moving across the track. The Dart is trying to stop but nothing is working. The Dart try's to move to the left but nothing is avoided. Both cars lock together and go into the wall. Both drivers are okay but the cars will take some work to get back to racing.
Here is the photo sequence.
