Video: “Big Baller” Coupe Destroyed In Wild OKC No Prep Crash

bb2As heartbreaking as it was, Corey Peters’ gorgeous Fastback Mustang wasn’t the only casualty of the OKC No Prep Shootout at the Thunder Valley Raceway Park on Saturday evening, nor was his excursion with the guardrail the most frightening moment of of the event. Not by a longshot.

The Big Baller Mustang Coupe out of Texas, which has made an appearance on the Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws television show in the past, was involved in a terrifying top-end crash that virtually destroyed the gorgeous white Fox after it barrel rolled— by our unofficial count — eight full revolutions.

The incident, captured by Sean Melton from Urban Hillbilly Videos, shows the Big Baller Couple fighting to maintain traction down the fully-unprepped racing surface, making a few wiggles as it works its way down the quarter-mile. According to the driver, who was uninjured in the crash, upon realizing he was out ahead of his opponent, punched the throttle to get the car to the finish stripe, at which point the throttle hung, sending the car around and into the wall nose-first. From there, it was just a question of where momentum was going to take the car, and as the crowd witnessed in complete disbelief, the end result was one brutal tumble after another, before the car finally came to rest on all fours.

As you can see from the footage captured from the big end after the incident, from front to rear, there’s little left on the Big Baller Coupe that isn’t bent, twisted, or otherwise mangled in some fashion. And such was the case with Peters’ crash, it’s painful to see what was such an immaculate race car in that kind of condition. At the end of the day, however, the chassis and the safety gear did its job (and the safety crew was on-the-spot), and that’s priority number one.
