Kye Kelley Narrowly Escapes Bad Wreck in Australia, Camaro Tags Both Walls
One of the wild things about drag racing is that you truly never know what’s going to happen. One moment, a pass might be going according to plan. Next, things can get bad in a hurry. While sometimes, the unpredictable nature of the sport can provide amazing moments like photo finishes, other times, it provides moments that we would all like to just forget about and put behind us.
The stakes are much higher with a no-prep race.
This time, we take a ride to the land down under as some of the Street Outlaws stars have traveled to Australia to put on a no-prep show. Unfortunately, for one of the Australian competitors, the day of racing at Perth Motorplex didn’t exactly end well.
One of the tricky parts of no prep is that sometimes, without a sticky track surface, all of that power can quick to get away from drivers. In this particular case, that exact scenario unfolds which unfortunately means some serious damage for one of the Aussie racers.
When the car lines up next to Kye Kelley in his freshly built Shocker Camaro, things go awry about 60-feet down the track for the unnamed racer in a black Camaro similar to Kelley’s. It seems as if the Camaro began to slide sideways and the driver was never able to regain control. After colliding with the first wall, the Camaro slides across the track behind Kelley before tagging the other wall as well.
Down in the video below, Off The Trailer Racing captured the moment that had fans on the edge of their seats, wondering what was coming next.
Hopefully, this unnamed competitor is able to pick back up the pieces and get back out there in the near future after a wreck that looked pretty intense.
