Watching this cool kit-car Cobra get turned into a pile of scrap metal probably would have looked a lot cooler from the outside, but at least you get to see how crazy a crash like this is from the drivers perspective! Here's how he describes the incident:
On the front straight doing 130mph, something breaks. The cobra veers hard right and off track. The car leaves a 6O foot gash in the asphalt as it veered before leaving the track and continued for an additional 500 feet off track to its resting point. I received only minor injuries to my left knee and bruised ribs.
Why he records himself driving around the track is anyone's guess, but I bet he was happy the camera was rolling the day he almost died!
