Alternator belt cut the lower hose. He was lucky for sure! Some good driving also.

I believe it was the mission of that green Camaro to hit the wall, clearly not his first time either.

I wonder why people try to purposely destroy things .....burn out contests, and people bricking a gas pedal on a engine without oil ...this does nothing for me, also the track allowing him to proceed with the broken front shock / tie-rod puzzles me. Maybe I'm getting to old.

I don't believe I've ever owned anything that made me think " I should intentionally beat the $#i& out of this thing and completely destroy it. That would be great fun"


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

I don't get the "wreck your stuff" mentality either. THe guy with the green Camaro hit the wall, and then acts like he's a big hero for it.

Small block POWAH!!!

Mopar Dan won Byron a few years ago with his small block Demon.
The next year a local guy won with a small block Barracuda.

Kinda like demo derby guys. They build cars just for this contest and purposely wreck them for attention. The red RT is a real 440 4 speed car originally and he has owned it since 78. I'm sure he's having second thoughts now! Lol.
