Video: ’63 Corvette Flies Across Drag Strip, Somehow Doesn’t Crash
The race, which took place at the El Paso Motorplex, seemed to be just another test and tune night. The cameraman’s focus was not on Hernandez’s ‘Vette, but on the rail in the left lane. The light goes green, the racers take off… and all of the sudden there is a Corvette flying across the drag strip towards the other racer.
Off the line it looks like Hernandez veered hard to the right, over-corrected, and wound up on the two passenger side wheel sliding across the drag strip. Somehow, Hernandez keeps the car from flipping and makes a miraculous recovery. It’s one of those see-it-to-believe-it videos, so take a gander and tell us how the hell did he do that?
