Driving a drag car is a scary enough proposition in its own right, but driving one without a steering wheel, well that’s just crazy talk. The driver of this funny car unfortunately found out first hand what this was like when he encountered an unexpected problem on his run. He started out clean enough with a good launch, but then, about halfway down the track his steering box breaks resulting in what I can only assume was a sphincter puckering moment when his steering wheel came clean off. The driver grabs for any remnants of a steering column and then realizing there was nothing there, reaches for the hand brake to thankfully bring the car to a safe stop after tacking the wall. My bet is that he’ll need some new underwear after that trip down the 1320. Click through for the video.
