Reason No. 237 on why you shouldn't stand on the starting line. Watch the guy with the cigar in his mouth walk away like nothing happened.Often at these drag strips, you'll see people standing all on the track and near the cars but this right here shows why that's not the best idea! Nobody was ... ... See MoreSee Less

That may not be a cigar...

That's a prime example anything can happen on the starting line great and it's cool to be into racing but think anything can happen and you may not be able to get out of the way fast enough race parts takes a brutal beating even if maintain on a normal base things do break and you'll never know ware it's gonna exit

Over the past few years why do they let so many fans stand on the starting line. I bet they didn't sign the Wavier the driver does so they could legally sue the track!

Punch of black bastards so what and wake up with your starting line lmao

Starting line????! Where?

Where's the chutes! 90% of the videos I am seeing are these guys getting out of shape and not deploying the chute to help straighten out the car and slow it down! I was taught when getting my license when out of shape lift and deploy chutes! Guard rails were not meant for the speeds that these cars are going now days! I don't think these tracks can afford to install the cement walls or they just don't want to spend the money!

I think it's time for drag racing to get with the times and use the same soft wall technology that NASCAR and Indy car use.

Most of the tracks if not all that have armco would be forced to shutdown if they were forced to have concrete. Instead of bitching we should come up with an economical way to make armco safe. Maybe they need more posts? More rails? Who knows.

Yes, wrecked and destroyed is going to happen whether it's steel beam or concrete wall! No matter what, your car would be junk. But, with a concrete wall, you won't have steel beams going at you. My vote: concrete

No more damage that concrete would be. Honestly they seem more cushioning than concrete but if they are lapped the wrong way they are coming thru the car.. I've seen that twice. One got lucky and got his legs out of the way but it took pedals, transmission and all..the other lost a leg and passed away a few days later.

So how many here think it's ok to race at a track with concrete walls to the finishline and guardrails the rest of the way? If guardrails are put in right and atleast 2 high they aren't bad. The problem is 95% of them aren't put in right. There's pros and cons about it all.

Yep. Steel guard rails are "can openers" and will enter the drivers' compartment and maim/kill even at lower speeds.

There are so many construction companies that have concrete dividers that I am sure you can collect some they toss out and eventually construct a solid wall or two. These guard rails I see are horrible. Can openers. Sorry, but I've seen so many bend and twist to form a launch pad that a simple highway divider type would have acted as a cushion and contained a vehicle than launch them.

Why does NHRA make the racers spend money in the name of safety but do not make it mandatory for race tracks to make improvements like retaining walls, smother shutdown surfaces?

Look up Don Young's Death as a champion of his class went under guard rail like the one in the picture car a short rail went all the way to the uprights on the cage cut him and the car in half

Seen a news study a long time ago on interstate guardrail. Said that over half of guardrail that was inspected was installed or repaired wrong. You just don't bolt together guardrail. Post have to be set right, proper hardware and installed right, rail positioned right. How many mom and pop drag strips know this? Set some post, hang some rail, let's go racing. Now with that being said you also have "interstate " concrete barrier walls that have the wide bottom base that acts like a ramp if you hit it just right. Don't know about cost, but a formed poured concrete wall would be the way to go. Either way hitting a wall makes for a bad day!

Guard rails make the cars climb up them most of the time do to the speeds never felt good when we used to race at my local track and everyone has seen videos of the world street nationals but we now have concrete barriers...

Those Metal Guard Rails are made for Highwaty use of Speeds of 65mph. I have seen many wrecks at the Strip and they usually get knocked down and car goes off the Track or Car gets on top of rail and it eats car up. My Local Track many years ago put up Concrete walls and there is usually a lot less damage!

They should be illegal. They are just not able to take the impact. I know they absorb a lot of energy, but if a car has enough momentum to go through the wall and hurt or kill spectators, then a big problem turns into a huge problem.

Steel posts every 6 feet and proper overlap minimum of 12" is a must. Also 4' tall and tight to the ground.

Gaurd Rails suck and some tracks still have them and the wood that holds them in are rotten a guy couple years back died with his motorcycle cause of those gaurd rails

Its all the same, when you take one into the wall or guard rail. It's a costly mistake, that u wont forget

I'd rather have double steal gaurdrails vs. concrete walls! Gaurdrails are forgiving & to Me will protect the Driver alot more than a concrete wall! As far as damage on You race car well forget about it! That can be rebuilt!

I'm sure most tracks would love to put in the "safe walls" but most can barely afford to stay open as it is

Concrete wall is better but lets face it if u hit a wall at these speeds now a days ur going to tare ur shit up doesn't matter what type wall it is

I avoid tracks with guide rails but feel they should make them a min of 4 rails high to avoid the cars climbing them

It sucks to hit either, but I'd rather see concrete walls. And I know first hand how it feels. Head on at 100mph!

Once you hit steel and tear up post how safe is it after they quickly put it back together to finish the race ?

I was probably 14 around 85' at the IHRA race at Bristol when the guard rail at the finish line took a racers life

Won't race my car on a guard rail track

Truest statement ever made about drag racing. I almost got hit by a window licking f***tard driving a front engine fuler. He got it stuck in reverse then hit the gas he broke some kids leg when hit him and and then hit a promod in the staging lanes. Turns out he wasnt even licensed

We saw Mark Malcuit running this great looking Camaro last weekend @ Galot Motorsports Park! He goes back a long way in racing! We remember him too as a dirt late model racer back in the day! Malcuit race engines...racing is obviously in his blood!

Maybe these drivers that create their own history of bad driving habits and crap equipment shouldn't be aloud to compete. Pull their license!!!!

I still watch this and laugh each time I see it πŸ˜‚

Mpc Engines have we ever seen racers like that? Lol πŸ˜€

Watch out for the window licking f tard next to you. Lmao

One of my favorites since the first time I watched it. πŸ˜‚

Eric Karr we were just talking about this lol

Then again shit happens, that's racing.

Look out coming to a track near you soon.

Others guys should have sold their shit to help pay for the car.

Some things are just uncontrollable when it comes to drag racing and on-track accidents. Mike Pardue found out the hard way this past weekend at Holiday Beach Raceway in Alabama when a deer jumped into and over his truck in the shut-area, ending his weekend of racing.

Pardue said "I wasn't quite sure what was happening but the deer jumped up and ran away after I hit him."

What, kick that winder out and grab some goggles boy!

Guess I am better off with my Dove I hit yesterday at 1000'

No-one hit it but we had to hold up racing to get a cow off the track once. ..lol

If I remember correctly, years ago a racer passed away in a dragster that hit a deer.

I got a rabbit in the traps one night. Rural tracks rural issues...

I had a bird hit my wind shield right after half track thursdayπŸ˜‚

Years ago Byron dragway had a guy killed in a dragster from a Deere. Very sad

I had one jump over the front of my Dragsters 3 years ago at NMD at 130+.

That has happened at National Trail Raceway a few years back also.

Happened at Detroit Dragway back in the day

Glad he's ok. Damn sure could have ended very badly. Lloyd

I killed two 3 years ago with my s10 in the shutdown area!

Saw the same thing happen in montgomery on a tnt friday night

Looks like the hood blew up.to me, lol yea deer

DID THE DEER CAUSE THE HOOD TO BLOW UP
