The Snow White Mazda is one unique car on the dragstrip at any event, but especially in the land of no prep. Built using a MazdaSpeed 3 body it just isn’t the normal Fox body Mustang, Camaro, G-Body, or pickup. Hell it looks like a tow vehicle until you see that it has a set of skinnies up front and some tire out back. And then there is the chute. We have never seen the car in person, but in photos and such it does look clean…or did look clean. We can say that apparently the car was built right as the driver walked away from this crash with minor injuries. That is unbelievable given the violence in this crash.
You’ll see that it gets out of the groove and the driver lifts and then gets back into it after pulling it back into the lane. It then leaves the groove again and all hell breaks loose when the car hits the wall at a 90 degree angle, jumps the wall, and then proceeds to flip in multiple directions multiple times.
One thing that contributed to this crash’s severity was the type of walls. The segmented highway barriers are intended to allow a car driving down the highway to rub up against them and roll up the barrier rather than just to slam right into it. The bad part about that here is that the barrier acted like a ramp and launch the car over it rather than stopping it like a poured concrete wall.
Regardless, this was one hell of a ride and we’re sorry to see the car banged up but glad to see the safety equipment did its job. Watch this!
