Ever notice those run-off ramps by the side of the highway? They're there in case a truck's brakes fail, but they don't have those in the Brazilian Formula Truck Series. Just some tire walls made to stop much lighter racecars. So when the brakes on Diumar Beuno's Volvo
race truck failed at almost 120 mph at the end of the 1.9-mile course's longest straight, he veered onto the grass in an attempt to slow down. But a ten-ton vehicle moving at that speed doesn't shed inertia that easily.
