This Is One Of The Worst No Prep Crashes You’ll See – Snow White Hits The Wall, Clears It, And Flips A Bunch Of Times


This Is One Of The Worst No Prep Crashes You’ll See – Snow White Hits The Wall, Clears It, And Flips A Bunch Of Times

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!

    Glad to hear nobody was hurt. The guy in the blue jacket with his back to the track dodged a bullet.

    No Prep could be replaced by blindfold racing with a cliff as the shutdown area.
    You want thrills?

    Gee whiz, where do you start. ” One thing that contributed to this crash’s severity was the type of wall?” C’mon Chad many things besides the type of wall contributed to this.

    If you are going to continue to promote this type of “racing” at least be honest.

    High horsepower, no track prep, small tires, inexperienced and otherwise stupid so called “drivers” trying to show off and overdrive their cars to impress people and get on You Tube might have more to do with the destruction than the poor wall your blaming.

    I will say it one more time. You look at the idiots lining the starting line and you know someday one of these morons is going to have something bad happen during their burnout. People will get hurt or worse. It will get publicity and give drag racing a black eye. I know it is coming and so do you and lot of others.

    In my mind a real drag racer who loves the sport would not be promoting this trash.

    BTW What’s with the dude jumping up and down at the start when a perfectly good Christmas tree is right next to him? What is this some 1950’s drag racing B movie?

    All that and still landed on the wheels. Impressive.

    Well just dumb luck I guess…

    Judging by the comments above, no prep is as stupid as it sounds

    For the folks that know….a track that has not been prepped is slicker than snot. The surface is like a 80,000mi treadwear tire that is 15 years old. There’s no bite at all. A virgin surface has more grip. When these cars get in trouble they can’t steer or brake. Then there’s the whole dare and fame aspect of this type of racing and the no-wheelie-bar crowd as well. Senseless destruction, but the promotors still walk away with a pocket full of cash because crashes and mayhem sell to today’s ‘racing’ spectators. Can’t call them fans…..they’re more like NASCAR fans that aren’t getting their crash fix there.

      hey. You’re on to something. Duck would likely want to incorporate that into his shows where the fans judge the elements of the crashes or near misses and rank them on a scale of 1-10. They can bet on who scores highest. Should fit right in.
