Video: Dirk Miller’s Harrowing Crash At Cecil County

Northeast Outlaw 10.5 competitor Dirk Miller continues to recover from serious injuries he received during a high speed crash at the Cecil County Dragway’s Outlaw Street Car Shootout just over a week ago. Miller was making a pass in the right lane aboard his twin-turbocharged 1967 Chevrolet Camaro when it struck the tires around 200 feet off the starting line. The Camaro took a hard left turn across the race track and struck the concrete barrier flush to the drivers side with incredible force. Miller took a second lesser — albeit still brutal — hit to the wall after the initial impact.

dmMiller suffered severe head trauma in the accident, and had to be cut from the bright yellow Camaro by track and safety personnel before being transported by helicopter to a local medical facility. According to sources close to Miller, he was otherwise without injury in the incident and his condition in regards to the trauma improved substantially in the two days following the crash under the watchful eye of the hospital trauma unit. Miller was reportedly transferred to a rehabilitation facility last week and has since — in true racer fashion — been up and at it under his own power and showing signs of impatience to get home and evaluate his race car.

As we always say, race cars can be easily replaced, but racers cannot, an we look forward to seeing Miller back out behind the wheel in the future.
