If you follow the world of door slammer drag racing you know that some of the most colorful personalities in the sport pilot those cars. Two of them are “Stevie Fast” Jackson and Jay Cox. Both men are talented nitrous races, both have orange Camaros, and both of them have the ability to break chops like few others in the history of the sport. They constantly call each other out on the internet, they have raced for side money, and they generally get after it like no other pair in recent memory.
As it turned out the two cars were lined up and ready to battle each other again during the PDRA’s North-South Shootout at Maryland International Raceway in Budds Creek, Maryland yesterday. Things were going according to plan for Cox util just before the 330′ block. That’s where you will see the car start to smoke the tires and then pitch sideways. It gets way up on two wheels and lands a few feet from the point where things really get bad for Cox.
The car mashes face first into the wall, actually rides the thing for a while, and then the parts and pieces start flying. This could have been exponentially worse had the machine been able to get over the top of the wall and into the grass. You will see the car slide to a stop eventually in the center of the track. We’re sure that Cox will be sore tomorrow.
As bad as the ride was, thankfully it went right instead of left. If Cox had gotten into Jackson’s business, it really would have been horrible.
