Lutz, who debuted his new twin-turbo ’57 at the Tri-Five Nationals in August, was racing alongside Street Outlaws star “Daddy Dave” Comstock when he drifted out of the groove and lost control of the car, careening across the centerline and striking the wall nose-first. The car spun to a stop and Lutz exited immediately and began surveying the damage.

“Really appreciate all the texts, and calls. We are fine, the car is hurt, but fixable. We will be back in no time, and faster than ever,” Jeff shared via social media on Sunday evening.

Lutz has endured an earlier excursion with the guardrail, as well, that forced he and his crew to patch the once-pristine composite front end back together.

The no-prep Memphis event contested over the weekend featured the Big Tire stars of Street Outlaws from Oklahoma City, New Orleans, and the Memphis area, with $50,000 being awarded to the victor.
