Most people attending drag races expect to see cars accelerate to breakneck speeds in a matter of mere seconds. However, as sick as it sounds, there's always the excitement one gets from seeing a car crash out of control at these same speeds. This is a rare occurrence, but every now and again, it does happen. This time, show goers at a drag meet in Brisbane, Australia witnessed a high-speed crash and we have the footage of the whole thing. As violent as it all seems, we're glad to hear the driver walked away with only a cut on his finger.

Check out the video after the jump.

      this has started to happen in top fuel too, the rear wing is holding the rear wheels down and the front wing is holding the front end down but all the torque being put the the road is enough to snap the car in half at speed. the problem is that the rear wing is behind the rear axel so under the wrong conditions (air temp, humidity, ect) the car snaps in half.

        Yeah, and make the airplanes out of the black box stuff!

        Well, it made sense when the comedian said it.
