Mike Dunn is a decorated veteran of nitromethane drag racing. However, these accolades didn't mean he didn't take a scary ride or two. The 1983 season, Dunn's third behind the wheel of Roland Leong's Hawaiian Punch Mopar Funny Car , was nearly his undoing.
Dunn had two severe crashes during the season, both of which were no fault of his. However, this didn't mean he didn't take a couple of sporty rides. The worst by far was his top end crash at a distance-challenged National Trail Raceway. Dunn walked away without as much as a scratch in an incident which could have taken his life if not for the forethought of then NHRA Race Director Steve Gibbs' decision to put in a second catch net.
Hear, in Dunn's words, about the moves he made to walk away from a crash which should have taken his life.

A video series from the makers of the Legends: The Series, CompetitionPlusTV presents the best stories of drag racing as told by the legends themselves.
In this episode, Gary Densham tells the story about the day he was at one of the Funny Car shows in Canada, promoted by a gentleman who carried a "big ole .45" on the front of his belt.
During the event, Densham was approached by rocket car exhibitionist Fred Goeske with the belief he'd hit someone during his run. Sit back and enjoy the humorous tale, as Densham spares no detail.
