H2R(crash) going for a ride of its own...

What the hell did they line the drag strip with? Oil and anti-freeze?

Shouldn't drag strips be as sticky as glue? Why would something like this happen?

That sucks. But what the heck is on that track? I didn't think the drag strip was open if it was wet/raining, and even if it is wet, that bike slid like crazy, there has to have been something else on the surface.

I'd be asking the track to pay for my repairs as it was not a safe surface.

Lol not rainy that is traction compound or a very good thing. He got out of the groove. His front tire then rear left tje groove. You can see the trackis shiny in the two spots cars tires would contact. The center or between the tire tracks is dirty and slick. It is shiny due to VHT or whatever traction compound the track uses. You get out of that spot , you might as well be on ice when in the throttle that hard. I have raced on tracks that would pull your shoe off but as soon as you left tje treated area , you are spinning.

Looks like he slipped on fluid from the bike. Possibly oil might have drug through the case.

Is there any saving it when that happens? That video just looks like shit hit the fan basically as soon as the front wheel landed.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

Honestly it all depends on how good of an ass god blessed you with and at that speed he should have been able to. What caught him out was trying to bring it back into the groove and being a little crossed up. Once he lost one end of the bike the other followed. If he was straight and steady on the gas he could have brought it back into his groove or drove it into the other one. Guy basically tried to turn under full throttle. Most new guys think drag racing is only about peg the throttle bang gears and lift when you roll past the cones on the big end. This video proves shit can go wrong real fast on any track.
