Video: How not to finish a race: Axle fail
Drag racing seems like a simple sport, but that’s far from the truth. Sure, you hit the right pedal as hard as you can and hope to cross the quarter-mile before your opponent does, but there's more to it than that. The fact is that at any given moment the world of drag racing can turn into a one-vehicle-demolition-derby bent on self-destruction.
Here’s a clip rarely seen from both angles of cockpit and sidelines view. Watch as the 1968 Camaro gets ready to launch, only to have its left axle disintegrate followed by the tire tearing the left-rear-quarter panel to shreds.
