Driver screwed the pooch.

Wheelie bars exist for a reason, idiotic.

It helps to keep the wheels straight upon landing!

In some classes wheelie bars aren't allowed. But watching the front wheels and seeing the in car video tell the story.

He races the car in the ADRL and wheelie bars are illegal. He knows how to drive his car, but the new tire he was testing on this run grabbed more than he expected. I know because I know him and this was at my buddy's event where GHIR went 11.30's

Yes he went right but it's because he drifted left during the launch and was getting out of the groove and muscle memory told him to turn right. He'll be the first to tell you he screwed up and he proves it by posting the in car video. Most people would of never released the video and blamed it on mechanical error or something.

Excellent way to explain it. Muscle memory is something that's huge for us in law enforcement and we train on it all the time.
