Two drag racers walked away from a horrific accident on Friday. This happened during the third qualifying session at the X275 vs. Hot Rod category at the World Cup Finals at Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, Maryland.
According to the FloRacing video, Bill Colson and David Farlow had a normal beginning to the race. Near the half-track, the gold car driven by Farlow began to lose control.
The driver then crossed the center line. Farlow then crashes into the driver’s side of the white car, as the hood of the gold car appears to come off.

Seconds later, the gold car crashes into the wall. A huge fireball can be seen from the impact.
The Gold car then begins to roll several times. The car eventually comes to a stop with its driver-side door touching the drag strip.

Both drivers walked away from the accident. Due to the extent of the damage to their cars, both drivers may not be able to complete the World Cup Finals – Import vs. Domestic. The race will conclude on Sunday with eliminations in all classes.
“I’m ok… still in (the) ambulance,” Farlow said in a Facebook post.
