Phuck me runnin! Bad day for the guy standing over the motor, It only took one backfire out of my motor to make me never put my head directly over the top of the motor. That is a story for another time though.

That one looks very familiar, think I saw a longer version before (like 2 min. or so). It was obviously lean, surging really bad, but was OK as long as he kept the RPM up. Driver let it idle too low and then tried to bump it. BANG!

Yea, that's a shorts-wrecker there.

I grew up goin to NHRA races. More than one Top Fueler launched his blower into the stands in the years before blower restraints! That sumbich is lucky to still have his head attached.

I bet his ears were ringing for a while!! Holy carp and he's lucky to have two arms still attached! I think that warm feeling might be pooh.

I was at the World Finals at Pomona in '85 in the traps at the end of the chainlink when a TF banged a blower. I see what's left of the case headed toward me in excess of 200 mph. It's one of those holy shit moments that makes you hit the ground RIGHT NOW!
Ah, the good old days.....:)devil
