Watch A Sprint Car Defy Gravity

If you have never been to a dirt track I suggest you go. Watching cars drift on dirt for roughly 98% of the lap is pretty epic when they’re by themselves. Add in 10-20 other competitors and it really is a sight. Plus for a little added bonus accidents are not entirely uncommon. Sprint cars in particular are basically roll cages with an engine and wheels. A fact that 25-year-old Austin Williams was quite thankful when his car catapulted over a 21 foot fence. There’s no other way to describe it. The car appears to hit a bump, gets squirrely, tires dig in, rolls a few times and then launches itself over the fence. Thankfully Williams got out on his own and was ok.
