I will never forget over 15 yrs ago I went to the drag strip with some family I dont judge people the guy had a horse trailer that he converted into a motorcycle hauler his truck was kind of rusted running half way decent but that drag bike he had was strictly business it ran consistent the whole day and he ended up winning the class he was running in DONT EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
People can make fun but, he is there doing it! 💯💯💯 much respect!
That would be a Buick Roadmaster
Those cars came with a tow package
Big ole Roadmaster those things would run lol
Pulled my nova with a crownvic
My guy pops tow a a 68 camaro with a Roadie. Say he hate trucks.

Glad both drivers are ok after this Lights Out 9 incident yesterday. We’re being told that the driver in the right lane had steering issues after damage from the huge wheel-stand #MotorManiaTV ... See MoreSee Less
Why didn't the blue car lift? Looks like the had plenty of time to see the situation
Not trying to start shit.. but if you know your car is this fast, wouldn’t you want wheelie bars?.. or did he have them, couldn’t tell.
Glad that the drivers are OK. The real issue is the crowds of people that the tracks are letting on the track, ridiculous!
Boy that coulda been real bad.. i remember Allen n Koretsky crash. Not sure wby the datsun pulled 2nd wheelie..may momemtum couldnt lift.
Not sure the other guy lifted? Dam!
Keith Thompson Jr better view
Glad all is ok...but what about a rule about cars sitting at the line, well after the light turns green, letting the other car getting almost to the stripe before leaving? This incident would have never happened like it did if both cars would have left...
Car sure moved right when he went bye.. must have been the wind
Probably kept in in to win the money, glad both are ok tho
Could’ve been a million times worse
This is what keeps chassis shops in business hopefully they're both okay and all the parts manufacturers they love it
Saw it in person.
That was crazy
Glad everyone's ok ...

Gulfport, MS — The start of a bad racing season and nightmare for racers in Gulfport, MS as a racer plowed into a pit area and struck another vehicle today. Sources say the driver accidentally hit the throttle instead of the brakes while driving through the pits. Spencer Massey was the owner of the pit area and Brad Clarke of Raymond, MS was the owner of the dragster that was also struck. Fortunately, everyone is ok. Follow DragCoverage for updates... ...

I'd like to help Brad Clark by posting an one of my racing items on EBay for auction. I'm not sure which item just yet. I will post a link as soon as I have it up. Please bid! All proceeds will go to Brad to help with repairs to his race car.
I'm lost for words! I think I'll call Tim McAmis and ask him because he has a saying for guys like this....
Brad Clarke spent all winter completely redoing his Dragster. All new powder coat, body, paint, Wiring, front wheels, etc and it’s all destroyed before he can make the first pass with it cause some dumbass doesn’t know which pedal is which. Makes me sick.
This is what’s wrong with the world. Everyone giving their opinions or casting judgement and none of them were there. Unless you know the whole story then you should keep ur negative comments to yourself. Thankful no one was hurt considering both my dad and brother were rite next to the accident.
This is what you sign the waiver at the gate for sucks to be the dragster guy but you can't go after him for property damages
This a a great family friend of our’s and neighbor. Things happen, accidents happen. Please don’t post rude stuff and bash someone over something you don’t even know the full story behind. Just think if you were in his shoes how he feels. Always be kind. We’re all grown adults here shit happens.
First glad nobody was hurt. Second I wasn't there to say what happened but how many dumb ass's drive through the pits to fast or hitting the gas and spinning the tires. It's on the driver but also on the tracks because they do nothing about it just like they let juniors drive through the pits witch is against the rules. Simple fix is start kicking people out if the rules aren't gone by.
The old one foot driver problem oops missed it by that much god gave us two feet but drivers education knows best ..
Looks like a accident to me like the guy really went out there to damage his car and other peoples on purpose really folks shit happens get real
He shouldn't be allowed to race again!!! If you can't handle your car at 10mph's I would not want to be trapped on a drag strip with him at 100+mph's!! Lazy and foolish
That’s bs u been in that Car Long enuff to kno plus most truuu racers drive with both feet lol must thought he was in a regular car
If he slammed the gas in mistake of the break looks like he was about to really slam the breaks on hard .. not saying this is what happened but I've seen alot of people goose on a car in the pits or coming up the return roads .. I've had so many people - kids walk out infront of me
I saw this happen in Indy back in the early 2000’s. A dragster went through the side of a trailer, moved the trailer ten feet and it damn near hit me.Unfortunately the driver didn’t make it.
The angle of the car makes me think he was pulling forward to back into his parking spot?? Just guessing here
The important thing is nobody was injured.... Everything can be fixed or replaced... I'm sure the guy already feels bad enough so let's pile on him some more.... Relax everyone it's not a perfect world!!
Kevin Bennett, we’ve been on the bad end of the same thing, haven’t we? Regardless of how dumb things like this seem, accidents can and do happen. You just have to hope the ones responsible man up and make it right for the people’s stuff they tear up. But, I can say from experience that is not always the case!

Drivers that slap the throttle in the pits are trying to impress people because their junk is slow on the track .
Should be stricter enforcement on pit speeds and driving in pit areas. 1st time is a warning; 2nd your a spectator. I see so many times people flying down those roads. Including pit and track vehicles. Costly lesson. Really feel sorry for Brad and Spencer.
So many people with so many opinions. Why not let the people there that saw everything sort it out. We all know accidents happen and as long as the guy pays for all damages , what should it matter? People need to realize that he destroyed his own car too.
Lately it seems the pits are more dangerous than the track. These tracks need to crack down on these guys that fly through the pits and general are just a danger to people around them. Take your time through the pits and watch your surroundings. No need to be at more than an idle coming through the pits....."gas instead of the break"....that shouldn't happen when you are in a racecar.
People like this behind the wheel of the car beside you and people are more worried about guys with loose belts.
Does he hammer mash the brakes after waiting til the last sec.? Driving faster than allowed in pits? I would be mad as a mutha f. That doesnt look like a low speed impact.
Used to racers would've done what it took to help each other out now they want to sit and bash on racers over a accident.. rookies iv helped racers out of they're cars that's crashed on the strip shit happens Always will in this sport
Happened to Nightmare in At more about 15 years ago. Never got a dime out of those guys. SMITH CONCRETE RACING. and hell no I ain't forgotten or forgiven!
Hate to hear this for Spencer and Brad. Accidents happen for sure. Happens in passenger cars too. Just a risk you take I guess. Breaks my heart because I know how it feels to put in a full winters worth of work into a car. Hopefully the two owners work something out to benefit both
