Things got a little hot for one funny car driver Friday when their 8,000 horsepower funny car exploded during 4-wide Nationals qualifying in Charlotte, NC.

As you can see from this wild video footage Funny Car Driver Matt Hagan was going about 260 mph when his drag car went up in a ball of flames at the 4 lane Zmax Dragway.

Although the driver was clearly frustrated by the incident, he was lucky enough to be able to walk away from this speeding fireball completely uninjured.

Hat tip to Dave & broke economist for the tip!
