That accident could have turned into something a lot worse if the car would have headed back towards the starting line. I have to assume the driver was knocked out, and somehow possibly the line lock was activated to hold the car there.

One of the guys on the NastyZ forum knew the driver. He was knocked out on the initial impact. The car broke its left rear axle and collapsed the left front suspension when it contacted the wall. Thank goodness cause all that could have gotten ugly real fast at full throttle!

The best out come of the hole deal was that no one got hurt and the driver lives to see another day thank god. That was one ugly wreck, as for the smoke show he gets #1 in my book :lol:
