Watch a dragster spin at 250kph

5 April, 2013 | by Rowan Horncastle

Last week, three-time NHRA champion, Larry Dixon, made quite an entrance to his drag racing career in Australia.

During his first ever pass Down Under at Willowbank Raceway, he broke an axle sending him into a hellish high-speed 360-degree spin. Amazingly he didn’t hit any walls, or his opponent Damien Harris.

But that wasn’t game over. His Rapisarda team managed to repair the car so Dixon could go back out. On that run he clocked a 4.68-second pass and set a new national record.

Check it out below.
