Thursday night qualifying spelled disaster for Fred Hanssen’s supercharged Top Alcohol Dragster at the Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona. Fred blew a tire which destroyed half of his rear wing. The resulting loss of traction and downforce caused the car to veer into the opposite lane and hit the wall. Luckily Fred was evaluated and released from the hospital that night. Thanks to Ron Anderson’s first slow (RT) and then quick reactions, Ron avoided a collision with Fred, saving not only his car, but also from making matters worse.
Ron Anderson has recorded this all on an in-car camera, and shows his quick steering that avoided a much worse disaster.
