Successive barrel rolls meant no winner in this particular dragster battle.
It’s one of the quickest races in motorsport. Just a handful of seconds separate the start and finish of a top fuel drag race, so if you blink at the wrong time, there’s a good chance you’ll miss the action. This particular match-up, between Don Kritzky and Monte Green at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, was one not to be missed. Both had flying starts before their dragsters lost control in close succession, barrel rolling before catching fire.
Green was treated at the scene; Kritzky was airlifted to hospital for further evaluation.
