An Amazingly Horrific Picture


Funny Car driver Scott Kalitta was killed this weekend during a qualifying race in New Jersey. The 46 year old Kalitta was a two-time former champion with 18 career wins. His Toyota Solara was going about 300 mph when it started to burst into flames and then crashed into a wall. His death is obviously totally unfortunate, but I won’t call it tragic; the drivers all know the risks when they get into their cars. The Boston Globe and the AP got an amazing shot of the car as it burst into flames, because it is essentially the picture of Kalitta’s unfortunate demise, I’m posting it below the jump for those of you who don’t want to see it. It isn’t graphic in any manner besides there being a car/man totally engulfed in flames, but if you’re interested/equally ghoulish, check it out, it is a remarkable picture.

    you have no idea what you are talking about . Drivers survive those kind of fires all the time. the safety equipment is exemplary. Something happened at the end of the strip, the car hit something it shouldn’t have hit. They are looking into why. That is what killed him not the fire.

    Yeah Slanch, eat that for breakfast! You posted a snuff pic and got all the freaking info wrong.

    I still care passionately for you.

    Now trade me Javier Vazquez.
