Drag races work best when the car is not in reverse.
The whole point of a drag race is to go forward really, really fast and beat your opponent(s). Sounds simple enough but not everyone is mentally capable of understanding this concept. Sometimes one just forgets their car is in the reverse gear. Such was the case with the driver of this black Toyota pickup truck. After doing a pre-race burnout, the less than careful driver managed to leave the truck in reverse. He evidently forgot about this all-important fact and took off in the wrong direction when the race began.
He's lucky he didn't crash into someone or something. The crowd laughed its ass off and so did we.
