Crazy stuff can happen duringÂ drag races. SometimesÂ cars burst into flames, and sometimes they look like they’re ready to ditch this whole racing on solid ground thing.
A video uploadedÂ to YouTube on Sunday by URBAN HILLBILLY VIDEOS shows what might be one of the craziest drag racing moments in recent memory. This Chevrolet Corvette funny car getsÂ 4,000 horsepower from its twin-turbo engine, and tried to use all of it to achieve flight at Tulsa Raceway Park in Tulsa, Okla.
Personally, we think the in-car view is the best way to watch this. Also, we weren’t aware that flying vehicles had become such a priority at General Motors.
In all seriousness, it’s pretty remarkable the driver, Daniel Pharris, left the incident without serious injury. Furthermore, it’s a miracle this Corvette didn’t completely flip over, which likely would’veÂ made this incident much uglierÂ than it already was.
