    saw something Wild today

    i have heard of this happening but i saw it 1st hand today..

    Guy pulled into the water box and did one of those 8,000 rpm burnouts :roll:

    i saw someting shoot out from behind car and hit the burnout backer board...i didn't really think much of it ..my intital thoughts was piece of rubber etc..
    anyhow as the guy bunny hopped on up, whiteish/Blue smoke poured out of exhaust with faint smell of Anti-freeze......

    track official had him kill the car...a friend of mine standing next to me went over and picked up the object we saw come out from under car..he held it up from a distance and i said "ahh haa".....a blown out freeze plug...WRONG !...it was the entire freaking Exhaust valve (minus stem)....i have heard of this happening but never seen hit with my own eye's...what a freakin trip..

    sound like someone throwing a SILVER DOLLAR on the track..... :shock:

    Anyone ever see this happen before ?

    Wow....see that is the kind of thing that makes me think the guys that stand on the starting line next to the cars are crazy. What if the thing goes kaboom and a piece of a rod or something comes flying out?

    Best I have seen was from many moons ago... A friend shot both kits to a sbc Chevy II he had and it broke all the main caps and broke the stock 'glide input shaft. The entire rotating assembly dropped onto the track... :shock:
    If you think nobody cares, try missing a payment...

    Years ago I saw a door car break a rear u-joint on the burn out. It went up through the alum interior and punched a big hole out of the roof of the car. :shock: As far as I know they didn't find the part. Who knows how far it went.

    I saw an altered have the driveshaft come loose on the burn out and smack the driver in the nuts. It bent the center of the seat up a good 2 or 3 inches. I still remember him down on his knees against the wall.

    I saw a grudge car (truck actually) throw a spark plug into someones leg. They think he was working on it and left the plug laying on the cowl and it fell out and one of his slicks picked it up.
