Crazy Video: Watch Brittany Force Suffer A Massive Crash In Her Top Fuel Dragster At The NHRA Winternationals

The thousands of fans that streamed into Auto Club Raceway at Pomona last weekend expected to see a lot of stuff but they did not expect to see Brittany Force suffer a massive crash in her top fuel dragster. The Monster Energy car, driven by the defending NHRA top fuel world champion suffered the calamity during the first round of eliminations on Sunday. While facing Terry Haddock, Force’s car lost traction. She tried to pedal the car to get it hooked back up and instead it broke traction again and accelerated almost dead left across the track. Thankfully Haddock had already smoked the tires and was not side by side with Force when she came across the track.

After taking the necessary amount of time to evaluate and remove Force from the car, the NHRA Safety Safari had her transported to a local medical facility. Force was awake and talking to officials when that move was made. At the medical facility her CT scans came back good and it was determined that she was suffering pain in her shoulder area but as of this writing no broken bones or limbs have been reported.

The side impact nature of the crash is a tough one. There is little around that area of the car to absorb impact and dissipate it. She took a hard shot but the modern safety features in the car like the high density padding, poured driver’s seat, and SFI mandated driver’s area all worked to minimize the negative impact on her.

This was a wild one!

    In my opinion good driving would have been letting the car settle down before plowing your foot back in it.
    She is lucky this didn’t result in something worse. Like hitting Haddock. Maybe in a bad spot like the cockpit.

    It\’s good to see anyone walk away from a wreck.
    And,…speaking of wrecks,I don\’t miss watching the NHRA.

    Trying to ride a 5 second bomb things happen very fast, you are just along for the ride It is a testament to the safety equipment required. And the safety crews themselves. Glad it worked out OK . She will be back at the next race
