I was there and it was my son's first national event so he got an eye full. I had just explained to him who Big Daddy was.

There used to be a video of Biggs blowover in Spokane WA, the one that broke ribs and screwed up his back. That one was a serious destruction of car and caused him to retire for quite some time.

Was there at the 1000 ft mark pitside, standing at the fence. Big and Darrell Gwynn were in a pissing match, as each were trading National low et records on each run that weekend. "Somehow" they were pair together every run, back in the days when pairing was just who you lined up with.
Big did not want to lift when the front end starting lifting and than the air got under it. It was unbelievable and Big got out and waved to the crowds.

This was not the first blow over.

If they were trading records, then they were #1 and #2. Which is how they run during qualifying. Dude.
