Default Woman Hit by Debris at Firebird Raceway

A woman was seriously injured at Firebird International Raceway on Sunday, after she was struck by debris from a dragster during a crash.
According to reports, the woman was flown by helicopter to Good Samaritan Medical Center with serious injuries.
The crash involved NHRA Top Fuel driver Antron Brown as he was participating in a first-round elimination race.
According to witnesses, his car crossed the center lane and crashed into a retaining wall. A piece of debris then struck a woman nearby.
NHRA officials are investigating.

This is an insane video: http://motorsports.fanhouse.com/2010...hra-drag-race/

Now the reports say the woman had died from her injuries sustained from the flying tire. My condolences go out to her family.

Hers a picture I took there.



The tire flew off and basically bounced over the people in the background sitting on top of their RV and landed in between a few trailers over there. I couldnt imagine seeing a several hundred lb tire/rim come flying at you at like 100 mph easily.

Yeah it is kinda weird, a commentator said that the driver got wheel shake when he launched off the line and he let off the throttle and then back on the throttle causing the wheel studs to sheer off. The drivers do this all day long,but apparently the studs didnít hold up this time.

That car was headed right at us when it crossed the lane, i do have to say it was probably the craziest thing ive ever seen in my life. The whole thing happend in slow mo too. If you were there, did you notice how long it took the fire extingisher to get there, Brown was out of his car before they started to put it out.
