If this happened at a NHRA track or during a NHRA event there is Medical Insurance coverage AND in many instances DRAW will supplement that coverage. You should contact NHRA (626) 914-4761 and DRAW (217) 345-6537 and give them the details of the accident. Unfortunately there's no coverage for the car just medical coverage for you.

Good luck......

This does Not have to be a NHRA track or NHRA sanctioned event to contact DRAW. Also, you do not have to be a member or contributor to DRAW to receive monetary help with medical bills.

Man Just stop no need for you to over analyze.. The man just lost his car in a bad wreck..

Progress calls for a heads up, in order for the next guy to consider. We were fortunate this time.

You got a problem with "it could happen to anyone" "The problem is 3000 lbs 160 mph on an index, not enough downforce"?

Why's that?

That's thinking about the next guy. You got a problem with thinking about the next guy?

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

Tell us more about how great you are and F up the thread further with your sniveling, my comments were a heads up for the next guy to come along.

There's nothing wrong with looking out for the next guy by giving him something to consider.

He may not be as fortunate without a heads up.

Small bits of info coming in, but still not much.

Plan is to have the car brought to my work Saturday and do the tear down and prepare the car to be sent for scrap.

Once that's done I'll download the micro SD card out of the IQ3 Racepak and see if there's anything helpful there.



I have a line on a stock roller car to build from. My dream car is gone, so this one will be strictly a race car. Won't be what everyone else thinks I should do, but oh well. It's a tool for racing and that's it anymore. If our scheduling works, the plan is to pick up the new body the following weekend and make plans from there.

This is a very interesting point. When I sold my 69 Chevelle, it went to a guy who put it back to 100% street use, no racing. He has made it truly a show-winning quality car. He calls me periodically and asks me what is this or that, why did I do this, why did I not do that, etc. While pondering his questions, I came to realize exactly what you just said. Over time, the car became merely a tool for winning races, nothing more.

I'm racing a very nice, slow, classic muscle car right now while I'm in between race cars, but my next race car will be exactly what you said - just a tool. Not going to throw big $$$ on a classic car or show car for racing. Just looking for a tool.
