Hungry Funny Car Eats Man Alive!

This is what happens when you don’t feed your funny cars. If you’re hungry, they’re hungry!

During a racing event at the Barona 1/8 mile drag strip in California this pit crew member when for a scary ride! Falling face first into the high powered motor of this funny car I’m sure he needs a change of pants! The driver of the funny car must have accidentally nudged the throttle and it could have really messed up his pit crew guy. He could have gotten his hair or face, maybe a hand caught in that huge belt and things would have gone down hill really fast! Luckily, the crew member was just fine, some helpful people ran over and lifted the cars shell up and he climbed right out. Pretty scary, bad things can happen very fast in racing.
