'68 Camaro Crash

You've got to go all out to win and the World Power Wheelstand Contest was a perfect example of that.  These guys were airing out a couple of tons of American muscle and hanging on by only a thread.  It was a ragged edge between pulling a 660ft wheelie and putting a busted up ride on the trailer.  Every competitor knows the thrill of victory and unfortunately most know the agony of defeat.  This pristine '68 Camaro RS is an unfortunate example of the latter.  He really hung it out there and was looking great but things went wrong arounnd the 150' mark and he wasn't able to save it.  Luckily no one was hurt and hopefully he'll have that beauty on the track again in 2013.

 Check out the how the impact broke the left front wheel.

A true champ, he was smiling and waving to the cheering fans just minutes after his wreck.  Poor guy but it made for some great pics.

I've put together a short video of the stills.  

Til the next time - Keep on Kruzn!
