This has got to be every dragster’s worst nightmare.

Nearly right off the line, the Mustang’s front catches air and flips the whole car up. But it doesn’t stop there. According to the video’s title, the Mustang flew 300 feet before finally smashing into the wall, tumbling and coming to a rest on its roof, on fire.

Luckily, the driver was able to crawl away from the wreck, uninjured, and the fire was put out quickly before anything worse could happen.

Take a look at this crash for yourself, it’s quite a sight. And keep your eyes peeled for the 1/8th mile spotter, who is the real hero of this video. After narrowly missing being flattened by the flying car, he was the first person to dash up to the wreck with a fire extinguisher.
