If you’re not familiar with Larry Dixon, the driver in the below video, he’s a three time World Top Fuel Champion! Here his skills were really put to the test. As he launches down the track, very unexpectedly, his left wheel and tire separate from the car sending Dixon into a spin. We can only imagine at that moment Dixon quoted something similar to Ricky Bobby, saying “yep, this is not good.” Luckily Dixon pulls out one of the best saves in ANDRA history, and after a complete 360 spin he continues down the track and comes to a stop completely unharmed. Well done Larry Dixon, well done!
This just proves these cars can’t do everything and they need one crazy skilled driver to make them work… and a little bit of luck!
