It all started as a normal drag race for Tommy Youmans at the Radial Outlaws Racing Series event at Alabama International Dragway. Seconds later, he was in for the ride of his life in Steele, Alabama.
The drag race started normally. However, shortly after the race started, Youmans began to lose control of his ride.
The front end began to go up in the air. Then, it touched back down on the ground.

However, the car got even more air and it was over from there. Towards the end of the dragstrip, Youmans went flying through the air.
His car went over the barrier. And his car landed feet away from the scoring tower.
Once landed, it appeared that the car moved several feet before coming to a stop. Pieces of the car can be seen in the field by the tower.
DragZine.com freelance photographer Chris Sears said that Youmans landed on his tires after the scary crash. Youmans was able to get out of the car on his own.
However, as a precaution, he was taken via an ambulance to a nearby hospital. We do not have any additional information on his condition at this time.
Due to the damage to the vehicle and his medical condition, Youmans likely will not be able to complete the race.
