Getting to race your car on SPEED TV’s popular Pass Time show must be a thrill. Knowing that you and the car you race every weekend will be on national television is really something. Unfortunately for the guy in the video, things go all to hell and he wrecks his junk HARD into the wall at South Georgia Motorsports Park.
The car is a Fox body Mustang that the owner says has a 302 in it with 146,000 miles on the rotating assembly. The motor is fed a 175hp shot of nitrous oxide and the gears are manually banged, which we approve of. As you will see, the car launches cleanly out of the gate and then things get weird by 300′ and finally go completely out of control at the eighth mile and the car crashed driver’s side nose first into the wall in the left lane. The front of the Mustang folds up and frankly, we were glad that the driver appeared to be unhurt. That is the kind of shot that can knock a guy out and send a car careening across the track under acceleration for a whopping and potentially fatal final impact.
Thankfully the driver can be seen moving and awake at the end of the clip. We really dug the nitrous purging through the antenna. That was bitchin’. The crash sucked for the driver and his car.
