Nitro burst gone bad
Just as Wheels editor Norris McDonald has been trying to get me out to Ohsweken Speedway to shoot sprint cars, my friend Ian Rae at Heads Up Racer has been trying to get me trackside at Grand Bend for some drag action. Rae grabbed this incredible shot earlier this year at the Grand Bend Motorplex when Mark Wisneski from Detroit experienced a full on nitro explosion. It was most certainly a scary moment, but fortunately Wisneski was unhurt and the car sustained surprisingly little damage.
Maybe I really do need to get out and start shooting drags and dirt tracks!
