Those are some neat pictures though.

But those are one of those situations that there isn't a whole lot you could do to save yourself except hope for the best.

If the car did come over the wall im not entirely convinced he could of ran far enough or in the right direction.

His best bet would have been to lay down right against the barrier. Notice the barrier never moved.

That is what I would have done. the barrier is part of the track.

I work at the NHRA Spring Nationals in Houston. Last year an A/FC came around the corner, the wind blew the parachute back open, I hit the ground behind the wall. Parachutes will wrap around your legs and drag you until the car stops. Seen it happen and didn't want to be that guy.
