Tulsa Raceway Park’s heralded Throwdown at T-Town events feature a host of classes, each bringing something unique to the fans at the world-class Oklahoma facility. Pro Street, a staple of heads-up events for over two decades, always features an eclectic assortment of cars and brings about some wild rides in more ways than one. In this video from Urban Hillbilly Videos, we get an upclose look at one such wild ride.
Racing out of the right lane, this 2002 generation Firebird launches hard and immediately makes a move left toward the centerline. The driver, Hulbert, Okla. native Terry Foster, corrects and seems to regain control briefly, but it appears the lack of sticky rubber near the centerline caused the car to once again make a hard move, this time toward the retaining wall on the right. At this point in the run, the car has gained too much momentum to be tamed and rolls up onto the driver’s side as it impacts the wall and continues a half-roll over onto its roof and slides…and slides…and slides.
As soon as the car comes to a stop, Foster slings the door open to let the first responders know he is conscious and works to extract himself from the banged-up hot rod. After a few moments, he emerges uninjured as the track crew and paramedics converge on the wreckage. The car appears to have taken the impact very well, as the majority of the chassis looks straight and repairable. Hopefully, Foster can get his nitrous-fed beast back on the track and return to the Pro Street ranks at TRP and beyond.
