During a drag race on Saturday at Jackson Dragway in Jackson, Tennessee, a car came onto the track. It’s not clear how the car came onto the dragstrip.

What is clear though is two cars were getting ready to race when a white car crashed into the starting area of the track. The white car had extensive damage to the front of it.
