There should be some world record list on drivers that obtained the most height during an incident. That was nearly astronaut status right there.

I think the chutes deploying helped keep the car on the track and slow it down dramatically....glad he is ok.

Here are a series of VERY impressive close-up still photos from a trackside pro photographer.
They really capture the moments in spetacular detail !

These chassis are designed to move around vertically. With huge down force in front and rear they natural stress in the middle which is perfectly fine. When the car "snakes" down the track, they weaken the welds and you have failure. When i worked for a nitro team, the frame was checked and inspected after every round.

These cars are absolutely Unreal! If I had the finances, I would love to fund a nitro team.
