The Ultimate “Oh S***!” Moment. 307MPH With No Brakes!

So what do you do when you’re traveling 307 mph and the system (parachutes) designed to slow you down fails? You go for a wild ride full of swearing and praying. This exact thing happened to Gary Densham when the parachute system on his Funny Car failed. Remarkably he emerged from the accident uninjured. No word yet on the status of his pants.
