Ironic in the extreme that this occurs in the same state as that recent Reno Air Race tragedy although so far as I can tell no spectators were injured here. These are very dangerous activities and these machines are running on the knife-edge of skill and performance. That means that there is almost no room for failure by driver, pilot or machine.

God bless all who challenge the limits because by doing so not only do they thrill us but the technology they pioneer frequently becomes our own safety nets.

One driver got a LITTLE goofy,(moved in like a foot) and all hell broke loose.
