"Well, that was a complete demonstration of how to drive like an idiot, take out two bad-ass hot rods," Pesz told's Amanda Busek. "Just got out of the groove. I just got done telling Jeff it's a little bit pulling by the wall, so if you get by the walls lift. And I did totally exactly the opposite of what I told him to do. That's all I got."

And there you have it....

    How many times did Cannon, Jenkins or Hahn pile up cars I ask.

    If any at all, it was very rare. But the Pro-Mod's of today are wicked animals of another variety; however, your point is well taken.

    First NHRA event for Nesloney, I feel bad for the guy.

  • oddyhahnoddyhahn Senior Member

    So he has pay for the damage to his car right?

  • Yvonne*Yvonne* Super Moderator

    I'm sure he'll be paying for a whole new car. I haven't seen pictures but I seriously doubt the car was NOT demolished completely.

  • oddyhahnoddyhahn Senior Member

    Y, Brandon pesz the driver pays right?

  • I’ve always wondered this too, in an incident like this, would the driver who collided with the other driver pay for damages to the car in the other lane out of Their own pocket? What if it is a different scenario like chutes getting tangled or some kind of mechanical failure that ends up involving both cars?

  • Yvonne*Yvonne* Super Moderator

    Well no its not a given that the other driver would pay. In most cases, they won't. When you drive onto the track surface you are accepting whatever outcome could happen. I have seen a few rare instances when a responsible driver gave money to another to help with a rebuild.

    Personally, I would because I couldn't stomach not helping if I had made a major error.

    "I can't afford to pay the other car because I sank all my money on mine."

  • oddyhahnoddyhahn Senior Member

    And you can’t bump them like NASCAR for being a moron.

    John Force helped out Jim head after their fiasco.

    Yes he did, Hemi!

    Some insight here is that track prep and a driver's previous experience go hand in hand. NHRA preps a narrow groove. PDRA and some of the other events will spray from wall to wall. That type of prep can create overconfidence. Going back and forth between events can offer opportunities to get different seat experiences under your belt. It can also cause a driver to forget the difference between a calculated solid risk and an action that will bite hard.  This type of mistake has happened to others and drivers have to stay vigilant in their decision-making to avoid incident.

  • Good stuff especially about the track prep. Thanks for the answers Everyone.

    bottom line.... if you don't want to run the risk of your car being destroyed and or be injured (or worse) at the fault of someone else.... don't race. Though I do feel tracks should be held liable forms of negligence.
