Mustang wrecks by doing a wheelie at the top end!

I just saw this on yellowbullet. This is Dennis Bailey from this weekends Radial Revolution. Reports say that he is ok, with some shoulder soreness. He is lucky to be alive!

He went through the traps at 4.84!!












This is a video of an insane midtrack wheelie earlier this year.



It's been bad luck for orange mustangs here lately, but thankfully everyone seems to be ok.

I was wondering if it was the same guy from the vid, that sucks, but atleast he's alright.

And that is why rollcages are mandatory!

Glad he's gonna be alright, and I bet the track clean up crew was glad they didn't have much to clean up on the track itself...

I read about that yesterday - he was pretty fucked up when they got to him, they said he was KTFO for several seconds after they got there. They had to cut him out of the car with the jaws of life. That car looks pretty good considering how fast he was going when he crashed.

That last pic shows the importance of a rocker bar in the cage. Without it that car would have probably been ripped in half. In the video on the bullet that rocker panel is the first thing that hits the top of the guard rail.

Never should of made that second hit as he was already through the 1/8th. Maybe he couldn't tell since the car was up in the air passing the 1/8th mile cone..who knows. Very scary seeing the parts flying in the air as he's rolling.

After looking at that video again I realized there were no wheelie bars in the pics. I realize that you can't run wheelie bars in drag radial racing, but they sure would have made a difference.
