Drag Racing is full of fun, adrenaline and also hazardous risks of crashing or rolling over at very high speeds so safety precautions must be on top priorities when performing this type of motorsport.
Nacho Bernal has made dozens of high speed passes in his QMP Racing Engines LSX436 Twin Turbo Camaro SS tuned by Cunningham Motorsports, pushing nearly 1800HP to the wheels! He’s an experienced driver who understands that no matter how good of a wheelman you are, you’re never too good to skip out on making your racecar SAFE. The Camaro had a custom 6 point roll bar by Deeds Performance, both driver and passenger wore Snell rated helmets and strapped in with G Force 5 point harness. This is why both men were able to walk away from a devastating roll that crumpled the car almost beyond recognition.
All airfield racing events covered by NARA have safety tech forms each registered car must complete, there are fire and EMS crew on site, and the runways used are smooth and clean to provide the best environment possible to test the limits of these cars. For those who like to go fast, stay off the street and come out to a controlled event to do it safe and do it right! Coincidentally Nacho was able to set the Camaro half-mile world record at 195mph before the car spun around. His car may be gone but he walked away in perfect health and a 1st place 6th speed class trophy!
