Funny Car Hits 250 MPH And Takes Off Like A Jet

Funny cars and dragsters in the NHRA are in the business of going insanely fast in a short amount of times. Occasionally, they get going so fast they can end up crashing in spectacular fashion in the blink of an eye. One of the craziest episodes of this sort of thing happening was racer Cruz Pedregon’s funny car nearly taking flight at 250 miles per hour. Amazingly, Pedregon maintained control of the car as it almost lifted off the track. Even more amazingly, he managed to win that race by a landslide, despite almost losing control.
