This driver might have gotten away with this in such a miraculous way, but we always emphasize here why speed kills. Not to forget, racing is a daredevil adventure, whether you are into Formula One, stock racing or even drag racing. This newly shared video online shows you why racing is a risky craft.
Ford Mustang got sliced in half after a brutal collision at a drag strip
Unlike the usual reckless driving on regular roads, the racing sport has taken into account over the years how to keep the competitors and spectators safe. Regardless, the danger is not totally off the book as shown in this video. The crowd was really shocked when a purple Mustang speared into the timing board.
From the massive impact during the collision, one would expect the Mustang driver to be severely injured or worse, dead! Fortunately for him, the driver was spotted walking away from the crash scene.

Crazy Mustang Crash At 828 Cash Days No Prep, Driver Walks Away! - Wilkesboro NC
The video of the horrific crash was shared on YouTube by TorqueTube SnuffMedia, showing how the incident took place at the 828 Cash Days No Prep events, Wilkesboro Dragway. The clip also reveals how the driver and his heavily modified fox body Mustang rip down the drag strip, swerving left and crashing into the guard rail.
Pieces of the wrecked Mustang were seen all around the track after the crash. The post-crash images show that the Mustang appears to be cut into half. The driver having survived this ordeal should thank whosoever that installed the roll cage from making him tell the story another day.
The only bad news here is: a female spectator got injured after she was hit by the flying debris from the Mustang. Her arm was reportedly broken but not enough to jeopardize her life. The situation was pretty much contained without any casualties.
