Hot Rod Drag Race Turns Very Ugly

Crash

"Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." -Murphy's Law

Drag racing, or any form of motorsport, is a dangerous thing. Pure and simple. As much fun as people have as bystanders, in the pit, or as drivers, there’s an element of risk every time. Modern safety technologies have helped immensely to prevent death and serious injuries, but as Murphy’s Law states, "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." The drag race you’re about to see between these two hot rods started off without a hitch.

Taking place at the 2013 Rock and Race in Salem, Ohio, driver Gordon Crowe (in his Biggie Rat ’33 Willys) was up against Ed Kasicki (in a ’33 Phenomenon Willys). After a clean start, Crowe somehow lost control and went into a spiral. He survived, but severely injured his right arm and back.
