Watch drag racing go horribly wrong, in slow motion
And, perhaps like nowhere else in the racing world, when things go pear-shaped in the National Hot Rod Association, they do so in a dramatic fashion. The video above shows this all off through the glory of slow-motion video, allowing us all to see mechanical disaster unfurl in painstaking detail. There's a lot of fire, a lot of rubber being wildly deformed and at least one engine rocketing out of the hood of a car. Trust us, this is worth a few minutes of your time.
