    I watched it happen during qualifying. He was doing 285 at the 1/8 mark, *parts* crossed the finish line at 262 mph. This happened once before to Larry Dixon in Memphis back in the day in 2000. The safety of these cars is amazing, though there were some deaths in Nitro Funny Car in the last 10 years or so (Eric Medlen and Scott Kalita). :(

    And I was running at Milan Dragway when Scott Kalita was running to get his NHRA license when he was 18ish and briefly talked to him on the phone. Bad day when he died feel bad for Connie and still do.

    I learned that 262 is nearly 300mph! Thanks ABC news!

    That means the Hellcat can do nearly 250mph!
