VIDEO: NHRA Pro Mod Racers Tangle In Violent, Fiery Crash!

Pro Modified racers Brandon Pesz and Dustin Nesloney walked away from a violent and fiery two-car crash in the final session of qualifying Saturday evening at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville, Florida.

Pesz, who through the first four pairs of cars in the session had been bumped from No. 16 to fiver spots outside in the field into 21st, was fighting to punch his way back into the very quick Pro Modified field in his Larry Jeffers Race Cars-built supercharged Camaro when he drifted left out of the groove near the finish line, lost control, and shot across the racetrack in front of the charging Nesloney. The two made impact in a fiery exchange as Peszs’ machine turned onto its roof and slid to a stop in the shutdown area.

“That was a complete demonstration of how to drive like an idiot and take out two badass hot rods,” said a dejected Pesz. “It just got out of the groove. I had just got done telling Jeff [Jones] there’s a little bit of pollen by the walls, so if you get by the walls to lift. And I didn’t. I did totally exactly opposite of what I told him to do.”
