I laugh every time I see this comment somewhere. Certain classes don't allow wheelie bars and this is one of them. Wheelie bars don't always work and in this case he would of either A. broke them or B. did something along this line

Yep.. Wheelie bars and radials are not a good combo, and as pointed out, aren't even allowed. I saw it happen live on the live feed, and it was nuts. One of my buddies went and talked to their crew and the data logger said the shocks showed the car airborne for 3.5 seconds.

Oh man I saw this vid... so crazy! Can't believe how well he handled the car after it put its wheels back on the ground. He could have plowed straight into the wall right after that so easily but he whipped it back around... amazing! I'd like to be able to drive like that some day, but I'll skip the bumper wheelstands Wonder how much that ended up costing?

As far as damage, looks like he did not hit the wall so he looks ok. The roll cage should take care of the rest of the frame stuff. Night have to look at the front suspension. Pretty intesnse!

It did enough damage that he didn't return. A wheelie can tear up all kinds of stuff. When it hits the ground and smashes the headers up, which in turn breaks the heads where the they attach, and/or smashes the oil pan into the crank, it can be very expensive.

It's funny this video is making the rounds, because these radial guys wheelie like this frequently, because they have to wheelie a radial to make it work. It's a fine line between working, and having a problem.
