When drag racing goes wrong. In slow motion

Beautiful slow motion action from the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season. Including shunts. And fire. And explosions.


Take a gander at crankandpiston’s illustrious history, and you won’t find too many videos with ‘crash’ or ‘epic fail’ weaved into the title. Every so often though, a compilation comes along that makes us break the rule.

The below is a highlights reel of the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season, espousing the ‘action-packed drama’ of life thus far on the quarter mile. What sets this highlights video aside however is that all of the drama comes to you in beautiful slow motion. Everything, from sideways shunts to blown tyres to fireballs and exploding engines is included in this two-minute mini-saga in painstaking detail.

Rarely does a cock-up on track look so elegant.

Purists amongst you though may want to see exactly what it takes to drive at high speed properly. Step forward Wing Commander Andy Green and Thrust SSC…
