My buddy Adam Browne of Revolution Automotive was there when that happened. The guys at the shop couldn't stop laughing when telling me about it... I just jaw-dropped when I heard the story. Sucks big time!

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

Really..???

That guy has no business behind the wheel of a drag car.

I have a feeling that was the first time he had ever taken that car to the track. And it will be his last......

Im sure it was a total loss. Hope he has good insurance with track coverage or a really big pocket book to eat the loss.

It will be almost impossible to replace.

You realize that a Cobra Jet is not street legal? It doesn't have a VIN - it is a factory race car and only 50 are produced a year. No insurance coverage like you and I get so he won't be calling up his State Farm agent on that one.

So if he can afford the $100,000 to buy the car, he probably can afford to fix it too. And he may have bought the track insurance but then it depends upon what coverage he selected. Some cover only on the track and some only in the pits and not on the track itself.
