My late friend John Collins probably survived more crashes than anyone in drag racing history. Mostly for no fault of his own. from dragsters to funny cars he had the misfortune of totaling 3 dragsters and 5 funny cars without major injury. This was his second flopper incident, the first at Lions, this at Bakersfield in 1972.

 


 

The Beach City Chevrolet Vette squaring off with Roland Leong's Hawaiian at Irwindale in 1970. Chances are Pat Foster was in the Vette, no clue what sparkplug driver Roland had in the Hawaiian.
