VIDEO: FRANKIE TAYLOR'S WILD RIDE

taylor_two_wheelsReigning ADRL Pro Extreme World Champion Frankie “Mad Man” Taylor lived up to his nickname with another wild ride in fourth-round qualifying Saturday at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas.

Running in the left lane alongside Sheikh Khalid Al-Thani, Taylor got the jump off the start, but nearing half-track his 2005 Corvette suddenly veered right, raising up on its two left wheels and crossed the center line, appearing on an almost certain collision course with Al-Thani’s ’68 Camaro.

Taylor already had his chutes out, though, and when blossomed with air, they slowed him down enough to settle his car back on four wheels as he slipped in behind Al-Thani in the right lane and motored on through the shutdown lane, unscathed.

VIDEO UPDATE - REED CONTINUES TO REST FOLLOWING MASSIVE CRASH

reed_3Brisbane drag racer Debbie Reed continues to rest following her qualifying crash in her Allstar Batteries Top Alcohol dragster during round one of the 2011 New Year Series at Willowbank Raceway.

The incident occurred after the 51 year old grandmother-to-be, who has over 30 years of drag racing experience, crossed the finish line during her first qualifying run in the Top Alcohol category.

Husband Steve Reed, also an experienced Top Alcohol racer, said while he has experienced all of the highs and lows of drag racing first hand, including a spectacular crash of his own at the same event in 2009, it was something completely different when it was happening to his wife and mother of his two children, who are also involved in the sport.

“I had made my pass before Debbie, so I was back in our pit area watching from the finish line, I saw that she was in a bit of trouble, and thought the worse, so I jumped in the nearest car and headed to the braking area,” said Steve Reed.
