Those are cool pictures too. The one with the wheel right in front of him is rediculous.

Yeah, I bet the dragsters weren't the only thing laying down skid-marks.

I pic of him cupping his....hat....is priceless.

You have managed to take a fire-belching monster, that is hurtling 200 mph towards your skull, and turn into something flat and lifeless. Death defying, try STULTIFYING!

Get out of my gallery, now! I don't wanna hear it GET OUT!

He's got two hats, one for each of his brass balls.
 
2009-12-15 11:57:58 AM  
I want to watch his balls race each other.
 
2009-12-15 12:03:44 PM  
The best pic is the one of him taking a slight step back (presumably to get a slightly better angle) while the other photgrapher is running for his life!
 
2009-12-15 12:03:45 PM  
Okay, there's balls, and there's stupid. How the hell did that man survive long enough to go grey?

He's only 17.

The dragster is a Mustang, so I'm not surprised that it broke.

He bought his ticket. He knew what he was getting into. I say, let 'em crash.

Some of those shots are "Rear Window" material.

sleeping martyr: I want to watch his balls race each other.

I'd like to see his balls perform a duet.
 
2009-12-15 12:12:19 PM  
He got big balls
Big ole balls
Big as grapefruits
Big as pumpkins
Yes sir, yes sir
And on his really good days
They swell to the size of small dogs
His balls are as big as small dogs

Well, it ain't braggin' if it's true
Yes sir, yes sir

Big as the swing of Tiger Woods (new window)

What is spewing out from near the bottom of the motor? Fire suppressant?

There is a fine line between heroic and stupid. Seeing as he was not saving someone's life or reversing time by making the earth spin backwards, I'd say he is safely an DUMBASS.

I can't view the website, but I'm definitely going to check this out when I get home, based on the reactions of some people in this thread.

I wish I were home right now, because I could post a .gif I have of some sort of road rally, where the photographer is standing at the edge of a barrier near a bend in the track. Then, a car spins out of control, heading straight towards the guy and the barrier. The photographer takes a sort of half-step backwards, and the car collides with the barrier (missing him by what appears to be mere inches) and then continues out of frame.

The photographer pauses for a second, then lifts his camera to take a picture of the car that almost killed him seconds earlier.

/If anyone has this .gif, please post it here!

1) That is a Funny Car, not a Dragster.

2) That stuff happens so quickly, that there was more than likely, no time to react. Lucky, not ballsy.
 
2009-12-15 12:14:04 PM  
Hell, he's just slow.
 
2009-12-15 12:14:46 PM  
Certainly a brave deed, but let's be clear about one thing: the incident occurred at the starting line; the car was not going 200mph towards him at that point. If it had been, there would only have been time for one or two pictures.

His balls may be big, but I be his bawls really let loose.
 
2009-12-15 12:18:13 PM  
Wow, that is a totally outtacontrol set of pictures of an out-of-control dragster charging at an out of control photographer in an out of control manner on a totally rad and OUT OF CONTROL!@L! website!@!

We're calling this "balls" now? He nearly won a darwin award.

I'm going to try and work "testicularly gifted" into a conversation today.
 
2009-12-15 12:21:00 PM  
I know I'm the killjoy but the article makes it sounds as though the funny car was actually doing 250mph at the time of the crash so I was a little disappointed to see that this happened just beyond the starting line.

But still, cool pictures bro.

It's barely 40 ft. off the line. 50mph is probably more accurate.

Umm, dude, you won the thread. I have officially LOLed for the first time in months. +1
 
2009-12-15 12:23:56 PM  
Well MAYBE if they put the friggin wheels farther apart then the car would be more stable. Or make em front wheel drive or something.

Cooter: you're fired.

After watching the video, it's more like 10mph. Not saying I wouldn't run like a girl, but let's get some perspective.

Meh, you've never seen how close spectators and photographers stand at a rally. This guy is unshaken and takes pics after the near miss.
