Horrible incident for a drag racing family on I-65 Interstate, north of Montgomery, AL today. We identified the racer and fortunately everyone is ok. After returning from Atmore Dragway’s Heads-Up event, their Motorhome caught fire. Fortunately, everyone escaped uninjured. We post this to encourage all racers and fans to have an escape plan, in case this happened to you. Great family and we wish them well as they recover from this fire. #dragcoverage #camaro #fire Video by M.Grayson ... See MoreSee Less
I never have my trailer doors locked during transport and have easy access to unload, just in case.
That's a hard video to watch....... Thank you all for the prayers. Eddie Shaw and Teresa Shaw are ok. Chris and I got the car out with a of couple of awesome people who unfortunately we didn't get their names but we are so thankful for. I thank God for watching over my parents and keeping us all safe. And for everyone saying prayer, state troopers, fire fighters, rescue, wrecker service we thank you all.
That Sucks so bad. I hope that the car is still ok. The RV is done and the trailer looks burnt also but they are still ok and not hurt. Who was it?
Good thing he has time to get the car out insurance can replace the other but not hrs working on a car
Damn that sucks, hate see racers have hard luck like that. I bet they are good people too. Hope they had insurance.
Everyone's ok and they saved the Race car, insurance should cover the rv and trailer it's all good
Wow just was racing with this family I sorry this happen wow 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
At least there safe got car out of trailer before it burned up must be a regen problem its al gores fault dont need converter on anyting i say its to hot makes fires cost of smog moneters to high
Hate seeing this glad everyone is safe. So sorry!!
Glad they all made it out ok. You can always replace an RV or a trailer. You definitely can’t replace your car, especially with Insurance.
Cody Graham Cricket Graham Mike Lester what would cause something like this it's terrible praying for all involved
So glad everyone is safe along with his car😢😢!
So sad!!! Glad they and the Camaro are ok !!!!! Live to race again!!!!!
That sucks. GLAD every one safe. Car was saved. NICELY DUNN......

Instead of everyone coming up with the theories of what actually happened or condemning the man for having a drag car on the street, why can't you just keep your opinions to yourself and say a prayer for a fallen racer. You never know when someone close to this man may get on here and see all your opinions and at a time like this they don't need things to add to the situation they are going through. We have all made mistakes in our lives, and rather this guy was doing something wrong or not, he has lost his life and we should all feel lucky to have survived all the wrongs we have done.
Why is this posted on dragcoverage? This wasnt drag racing
It's not a race car it's a pro street car and there are thousands of them in this country. No one on here knows anything about what he was doing so keep your wrong opinions to yourself. He could have just been out enjoying his car and had a blow out or something might have run out in front of him. RIP and I hope there's cars like that in heaven.
Someone said he wasn’t wearing a helmet but at these speeds and a tree it most likely wouldn’t have mattered . Prayers to all
Why was he racing on the road where there are obstacles on each side???
Has slicks on it so maybe street racing? Maybe his opponent took him to the hospital and doesn't want any one yo know? Just a theory.
i find it funny how many peaple are condeming this guy for what he was doing when i will bet 90% of them have done the exact same thing at one point in their life (the pot calling the kettle black) i do hope he gets better and can fix his car
Nathan you are exactly right. An accident is just that...An accident no matter how it happens and for someone paying the ultimate price...That is sad.
To his family and friends my depressed condolences in this tough time.
Out of respect I'm keeping it short and sweet as I understand as we lost our 25 year old son in his Mustang on his way to work.
In times like this you need to think about what you say as this man was someone's son, friend and maybe a Dad and those people are suffering. Like your parents use to say " if you don't have nothing nice to say...Don't say anything ." In these times...Sorry for your loss works well . His loved ones are feeling bad enough...They don't need options too .
Prayers to his family. Promise he was smiling tell lost control. You can die walking across the street at least he was doing what he injoyed.
Who cares what happened...the poor guy is dead...R.I.P. people are so damn stupid.
well theres definitely worse ways to go at least he went with his car rip
Cant hate on the dude. If I had a car like that with the time, money, and effort involved, I'd probably take her for a ride every once and a while.
Look I didn't know the man from Jerrey or Larry. But rufus sounds like a dude with a mullet that died driving a car he loved with his favorite beer in his system. He went out bald eagles screaming. Lmao
RIP driver, he went out, doing what he loved.
I can't believe the negative comments and opinions . This poor guy lost his life in an accident and No one else was injured or killed. Why isn't " so sorry for their loss "... not enough ?
Geez people, stop with the unnecessary comments and just say prayers for this man’s family! Prayers sent. RIP
Street racing is stupid and deadly. We do have areas to race legally.
Prayers for his family for their loss.
Prayers for the family. He went out with his boots on
Ed Stroh Chip-lester Gardner this is why I don’t like it. Seen it way to many times.
That damned sure was no street car...cage, slicks, lexan windows...he was testing where he shouldn’t have been. 😕
Keep on glamorizing street racing...this is why we have race tracks
That is y I stopped street racing
GOD BLESS the loved ones
To much watching Street Outlaws Prayers for Family 😢
This sort of thing can & will keep happening unfortunately! This is the reason we have race tracks & safety equipment! Maybe the so called street racers should think about this !!!

whew, video of a video. thought ya'll were better than that!
Should have noticed it was time for new ones
Probably brand new. Couple of years ago. My Son Bobby Cottrell had a brand new set zero runs. And Good Year mounted them. Both blew on a burn out. That was the 2nd time I ve seen this happen. So to does happen. And no didn't get a new set for free. That's Race Suck it up.
Lucky they blew out on the burnout, would have been ugly during the run
They were brand new tires and they were little bubbas and your suppose to have bead locks with them tires on, but he didn’t which caused that to happen
Trevor Jenkins what Charles thinks will happen when you burn his car out 🤣🤣🤣
WHO, doesnt look to see how much rubber is left- maybe it is better because maybe he would have crashed
This announcer sounds like one from 1989 Buick nationals video
