Street Outlaws’ Shannon Poole Involved In Harrowing Track Crash

Veteran racer and Street Outlaws: New Orleans television star Shannon Poole was involved in a harrowing accident while competing at the Gulfport Dragway’s Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Blowout on Sunday afternoon. 

 

Poole, from Pascagoula, Mississippi, was racing in his familiar nitrous oxide-assisted 1964 Corvette when, in an incredible scene the likes of which the sport rarely sees outside of nitro and radial-tire racing, climbed onto its rear bumper near the finish stripe and took flight. The car, from what we can see in the existing footage, turned sideways in mid-air and slammed down on its nose, erupting into a fireball as the fuel lines were likely severed. The car then barrel-rolled to a stop in the shutdown area.
