Broken parts (and shattered dreams) are a common by-product of drag racing but rarely do you see carnage as dramatic as this Chevrolet C-10 exhibits.
Seconds after launch the C-10 snaps its drive shaft in a violent burst of anger and chucks it aside…in the middle of a wheel stand. Yikes.
We don’t have any specs on the truck but you can clearly see it flex and convulse under power, which leads us to believe its packing a fair number of ponies behind its perfectly slatted grill.
It just so happens there were no bystanders in the immediate area so thankfully no one was injured, though we’d guess the driver left the race with a seriously banged-up ego.
As Speed Society points out, the drive shaft appears to be in half-decent shape and it looks like the driver should be able to get back on track fairly soon.
Have a look at all the hot, drive-shaft-spitting action below and be sure to hang-on ‘till the bitter end to catch the slow-mo replay.
