Last week we gave you a video bonanza filled with random videos of crashes during “spectator drags” at small circle tracks. Well, “spectator drags” are the internet’s gift that keeps on giving because we have some fresh footage that shows two cars getting all kinds of wadded up when one racer has far more testicular fortitude than he does driving talent.
This video was taken at Seekonk Speedway, a bull ring located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. It is the last functioning race track in the entire state. That’s a damned sad fact. Apparently the facility had some sort of event last weekend and as part of the action held spectator drags. The ill-fated pair we watch is a Miata with a removable hard top and a third gen Firebird which looks pretty clean and is equipped with some questionable wheels.
The ‘bird is leading the one lap contest and the driver of the Miata is running out of time. The guy in the Firebird is obviously trying to avoid losing to a Miata and the guy in the Miata is looking to be the underdog hero (yes, we know that on a road course the Miata would absolutely swallow the Firebird whole, but this is an event being held at a stock car track. That’s not exactly Miata fan club central). As they head into turn three, the guy in the Miata drives into the corner way too deep and just collects the Firebird, damaging both cars and knocking the Pontiac completely out of commission. The dude in the Miata finishes the race with a totally farked up front end.
Press play and see two guys put the “amateur” into amateur racing.
