Top Fuel Dragster Crashes At 280mph, Driver Unscathed

It’s a universally known fact that mums know best.

When she told you not the ride your bike without a helmet on and you promptly cycled into a tree, she knew best. Most mums, we imagine, also don’t recommend drag racing on the same, “you might get hurt” basis.

One drag racer stuck two fingers up at mums everywhere by crashing his Top Fuel racer at 280mph on Saturday and not being at all killed. Death defying drag racing lunatic Larry Dixon didn’t even manage to break a bone or snap off any extraneous body parts either.

In fairness, he was wearing a seven-point harness, a head and neck brace and a padded head rest. Maybe mum was right after all…

Pssst!
