Pro Line Racing’s Eric Dillard walked away from a crash during a private practice session, according to DragZine.
The accident occurred at Virginia Motorsports Park in General Racing’s latest “El General” C7 Corvette dragster. Earlier in the day, Dillard managed to wrestle out a 3.56-second pass at 224 mph in the C7 Corvette dragster. According to the report, that time makes for one of the fastest times ever posted by a door slammer.
The accident has been attributed to the Corvette dragster’s own fluids leaking, spinning it straight into the guardrail.
Pro Line Racing said the dragster has already been sent off for chassis and body repairs, and it hopes to still make the PDRA World Finals, also at Virginia Motorsports Park, next weekend.
