Matt Hagan is one lucky man.
Matt Hagan is a Funny Car driver with one heck of a story to tell. While tearing down the drag strip during the NHRA 4-Wide National Qualifiers, his 8,000hp racer turned into a Chariot of Fire at 200-plus mph. See for yourself below.
Only God knows how Hagan walked away from this explosion completely uninjured (well, except maybe for his pride and his pocketbook). Let's hope his sponsors will help him get back in the saddle again soon, though after watching this clip there is no telling whether he would want to or not.
