Doug Foley Top Fuel Crash 2006
Foley's car went into a wheelstand, then lost traction when he pedaled it and the front came down. The car then turned sideways, crossing the centerline at the 330-foot marker. He managed to get the car pointed down the track, but the rear slammed into the left wall hard, breaking the chassis just ahead of the driver's foot box. Both pieces slid back across the track together and there was a big fireball when the fuel tank hit the wall. The nose of the car came to rest on the centerline, near the finish line, while the heavier engine and driver capsule slid along the wall, coming to a stop about 300 feet past the finish line.

Elimination finals from fabulous Famoso Raceway in Central California. The 2nd event of the 4 event American Nostalgia Racing Association 2011 racing season.
2010 ANRA Season Opener.
The 2010 racing season gets underway...the weather was perfect. Every racer crew member and fan that I spoke with was having a great time. Very few and minor oildowns. Although an unfortunate HAMB dragster lost its gears all over the lane
That Tri-Tip dinner was awesoma!
More clips on the way.

A huge turnout for the 2nd Eagle Field 'Fresno Dragways' Renion in Dos Palos California. The bi-annual event drew a record car count as dragsters of every configuration took on the 1/8 mile strip in the popular grudge-run style.
