My request is to please get all of the people out of and away from the starting line/burnout box! When he backs up he pushes people away from the car. What if a tranny lets go? It can saw a car, floorboard, feet etc within many yards. down

I don't think the response time was bad. Maybe a little tardy, but Maple Grove has walls to the end of the track and it's fairly long.

Looks like the fire may have been been fed. I wonder if anyone got to the shut off on the back of the car to shut stuff off.

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

Curios to work what happen? Did the vette got out of the groove? I see something on the other car let go.

I don't know about anybody else, but my car has a driver accessible shut-off. And a on board fire system. It was $600 cheap.

I followed your tip, and installed one in my car as well. After having the shutoff in the car, it should be a rule IMO.

This amazes me as well. At our track, only the track crew & the car crew are allowed on the start line. I can't believe how many extras are on the start line here & with no protection.

Tim Mcamis has an interesting view about this behavior on his Youtube channel that made me chuckle a few times.

That couldn't happen to a nicer cry baby: grin:: devil:
I hope the, person persons, decision making person, persons or people don't allow him back on any program associated with street or any type of drag racing on their network twocents
Way to many cry babies on them already down rant
Racers race and wanna be racers cry and complain instead of working on making their car and or driving better twocents
It seems to me that his Father is the motivation behind him racing shruggy
I sincerely hope that the other driver wasn't hurt, anyone know of him and his current conditions?
After watching the complete video this afternoon it looks like a bunch of the Street Outlaw racers were there also, I wonder why work

The cable goes into the car where a lever is attached to the cage. It can be shut off from out side the car (rod in lower part of the pic) as well. The bell crank is just 3/8" steel tube. A compression fitting cut in half locks it to the switch.

Their is value to this on a street car as well. If I had a dime for every time I got in the car and forgot to turn the switch on......

I never turn mine off at the races, never up Even on the local two day races up
I do know several SO CA racers who use a motor home 100 % duty cycle electric solenoid to act as a on and off switch that they can turn on and off from the driver seats work It is in series with the main batteery cable after the cut off switch, the bad part about using one like that is it uses current to operate it so it will drain the batteries eventually as long as it is on work down
