Stolen from www.ADRL.com
Cody Barklage of Lake Ozark, Missouri, was uninjured in a heavy crash into the right wall of South Georgia Motorsports Park (SGMP) during round two of Pro Extreme qualifying for the ADRL Hardee’s Georgia Drags VI.
Barklage, who started from the left lane, lost traction almost immediately off the launch and crossed over behind John Stanley, who safely made it down the right lane.
“It made a pretty abrupt turn and I cocked the (steering) wheel back, but there really wasn’t much I could do for it,” the young driver told the SGMP crowd in an interview with ADRL announcer Bret Kepner.
Barklage quickly exited the burning car while trackside ADRL safety workers brought the fire under control.
“It was hard to see, but I could feel the heat, that’s for sure,” Barklage said. “At first I got excited and started panicking trying to get out, but then I thought about what I was doing and just did what I’ve been trained to do.”

Seeing that sequence and others like Spiro Pappas crash last year makes me wonder why they allow the fuel cells in the front (other than the gravity assist).Seems like a fire waiting to happen.
