(Lead video credit: Urban Hillbilly Action Videos – second video NXGonzo YouTube) – Carl Scott and Dave Hildebrand had engaged in weeks of internet smack talk about their matchup at the No Prep Mayhem event which was being held at Kansas International Dragway. The sun was out, the stands were packed, and the two cars rocketed off the starting line. Scott, driving his Honey Badger Nova seemed to be getting the better of the twin-turbocharged pro mod style Camaro of Hildebrand and then things got bad. Real bad.
As you will see, Hildebrand’s turbocharged car really started pulling hard on Scott and then it shot across the track directly in front of him. Scott buried the brakes and Hildebrand went to work trying to gather up his car. It hit the left wall and then rotated on itself, heading back across the track at a frightening clip before busting through the guardrail and tumbling through the grass and dirt outside the racing surface itself.
Coming to the stop near the edge of a farmer’s field, the car is completely and utterly destroyed. Amazing, Hildebrand was able to walk away after the ride and that’s a testament to the quality of the chassis build and the safety equipment he was wearing at the time.
We are thankful that Hildebrand is OK and that Scott was able to keep his famed Nova from seemingly any damage. Hildebrand was not the only one to have a rough day as Matt Frost of Rocky Mountain Race Week suffered a crash in his awesome coupe. Matt is OK and the car can and we assume will be repaired. Needless to say it as a tough day at the strip at KID.
