Firebird Plays Chicken With Ditch In Texan Drag Race

Drag racing can be a dangerous sport, especially when a Firebird tries to hide in the bushes.

It happened a Dig Night in Houston Texas. It’s a drag event that is hosted by Stance Autoworks. All was well and fine until the two cars in this heat get going. They both sound incredibly lumpy, and there’s no doubt a massive amount of horsepower bridled in these two cars.

 

Both cars successfully complete their burnout, and back up to the starting line. When they are given the go-ahead signal (flashlight) they are off. Immediately the Firebird breaks loose, and goes all squirrelly all over the track. It only takes about two seconds from when the race begins to when the Firebird plants itself in the bushes on the opposite side of the track.

It looks like the driver is okay,  although shaken up.

As usual, there is no guarantee of making it to the checkered flag in any race, even in a 4 second sprint. This guy found out the hard way.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
