Dixon survived massive Top Fuel shunt

Larry Dixon’s recent spectacular crash during the NHRA Gator Nationals in Florida last month wasn’t his first encounter with a dragster falling apart. Though alarming he was fortunate his skyward wreck landed inside the track wall where it skidded to a halt and not in the unforgiving earth beyond the wall.

Dixon (48) is a formidable NHRA Top Fuel contestant. In 108 final-round appearances he won 61 (54 percent) and by the end of the 2011 season he had notched-up 637 round wins.
