Does it look to anyone else that the Mustang made a move at the same spot?
Darrin didn't say a word about the car moving, that was the best pass of the night. Dave tookout the 1/8mile sensor and took out the timer we had no slip past the 1/8.

The concensus is that the diagonal link broke in the ladder bars, the rear shifted over and the tire caught the quarter, this is about where the car heads for the centerline, and when the tire caught on the quarter it stuffed the car to the left and into the wall.... said he felt like something threw one side of the car up off the ground prior to making the hard left.

Thankfully Dave was okay. He's a pretty well built guy and I'm sure tha helped a lot....... that second hit looked harder than the first.... last guy I know who did almost that exact same thing with hitting 2 walls(Todd Goodwin), broke his neck.

Don't know what Daves plans are at this point. I'm sure he'll chime in eventually. I'm sure he's pretty sore today.
