I would of thought that the track would have a longer runoff area.
You know, I've raced on that track a number of times & I've always thought the same thing. I've gone down that track at a "slow" 108 mph and felt I had to use too much brake to slow for the last turn off. Over the years, a number of times I actually thought to myself what would happen if brakes & chute failed at Top Fuel speeds? Unfortunately today my question was answered. I sure wish it was still unanswered. I've never been to any tracks other than Englishtown so I don't know if they are all like that or not. But that video was astonishing. It was unlike any pro-drag race crash I've ever seen. Calling it horrible is an understatement.
