At the National Machinery Show in Louisville, KY, things didn't go well for this guy in the Super Stock class as the sled malfunctioned and the weight stopped moving towards the tractor at about half track. I think the impact of the sled was worse then the crash into the wall. There is a little cussing at the end of the video.

I watched that earlier, they needed an exit door at the end of the track :thumbs:

The box slammed him pretty hard.

I've seen something very similar a couple years ago, it was with a mini modified. The wieght didn't move up at all and the driver gave it all. He ended up jack knifing and all most tipped over. It was a scary thing to see.

I've been to these pulls a good many times since they just started using the weight transfer machines. Many things can go wrong at once. Sure wouldn't mind running one of these tractors down the track some day.

I always wondered if the guy on the sled had a kill switch...I guess not. At the monster truck shows someone has a kill switch to shut them down when a problem occurs.

usually not, just a break a way cable that shuts them down if tractor breaks lose from sled.
