Drag racing is usually some serious business, except when it turns into comedy. Here’s a compilation of drag-racing mishaps that shows what happens when thing go awry just as the bottom light turns green. Talk about funny cars!
Amid all the smoke and noise and drag racers hurtling forward on the quarter mile are these classic failures to launch. Or maybe launching with a little too much gusto.
My favorites are the ones in which the cars simply tear themselves apart on the starting line. Or the guy who starts his drag race in reverse. And humiliated bikers who flip their motorcycles right out from under themselves. Super awkward.
