Drag racer Justin Swanstrom was recently involved in an accident. Despite the accident, Swanstrom says that the team will be back competing soon.

Shortly after the two cars were going down the track, Swanstrom began to lose control of his car. He then hit the wall. After hitting one side of the wall, his car then goes over towards the other side of the wall.

“Thanks for all the text & checking up on Justin Swanstrom,” Corey Swanstrom said in a Facebook post. “He’s doing good. Car did its job along with all his safety gear. I always say it’s not if you wreck, it’s when you wreck. Don’t feel sorry for us. Racers wreck every day, it’s what we sign up for. We know this going in, pushing these cars to the limits. It’s gonna happen & we know this. Are our feelings hurt? Yes. Is Justin good? Yes. Can the car be fixed? Yes. All in all, we came out pretty good.”

The older Swanstrom has taken the blame for the accident. At least, he has through a social media post.

“Here is the reason Armageddon wrecked, it was 100% my fault,” Swanstrom said. “I made the call on the tune-up. My decision; my fault. The track was pretty hot. I was being over-conservative & Justin & Armageddon did the best they could with what I gave them. Once the power started being applied from that Pat Musi monster, Armageddon set back about 200′ out hiked the wheels. No big deal.

“Our driver is no Rookie. He knows when to rip but the track just did not hold that power with the wheel speed I gave. It’s not the track’s fault; it was mine when it kicked the tires while carrying the wheels. It set the front end down hard enough to unload the rear causing it to make an abrupt turn no saving that. “We all make decisions I made mine in the staging lanes & it cost us. No one to blame but me but make no mistake, we will be back better than ever until then you ladies play nice.”[0]=AZXAP4K0DmasGxD-pu3pWLfyhTLE6rALL3RTMqOUCtZvYIdlN11U_qGj6OamFnJek-BPZQQ52pz0Z2ZQ56VfQseH_bsS1wMvyjX2nH7G53fFvaDqg_BAx1FokPnCYzloSGLfA1USuXVkXdiAQImCNyBEaGpUCtKC5cHXMGvD2nz4ZQ&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R
