Video: Kevin Neal’s Wild Wheelstand And Pirouette Crash At SGMP

Last October, Lebanon, Ohio native Kevin Neal left the South Georgia Motorsports Park on the high of high’s after his ’89 Ford Mustang – not considered to be one of the big buck efforts in the class – charged into Radial Revolution and crushed the competition in Extreme 275. Armed with a nitrous-fed big block, Neal shattered the existing X275 national record of 4.80 with a 4.78.

The drag racing gods, however, have an interesting way of humbling racers.

During the second round of qualifying for the stacked Outlaw 275 Vs. True 10.5 on Friday evening, Neal went for quite an exciting ride and certainly an expensive one to start the racing season, but as we’re sure Neal himself can attest, this one could’ve been much worse.

Whether you’re a drive, a fan, or one of the brave photographers standing within inches of harms way, you can never be quite sure what will happen at one these insane heads-up doorslammer events, and this is a prime example, as you can see in the video captured here by the folks at the Racing Vids as Neal’s Fox body mount heads for orbit and comes down on it’s driver side, where thankfully, it remained without ever rolling onto its roof as it slid down beyond the eighth mile marker.

No doubt this isn’t the way Neal envisioned the beginning to his season, but we join the rest of the racing community in wishing his a team a speedy return to racing.
