This flashback footage is from a 2014 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event where racers Monte Green of Haxtun, Colorado, and Don Kritzky of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, were both involved in a near fatal wreck.

While both of their incidents were separate during a side-by-side race in Top Dragster eliminations, it’s almost impossible to believe that either driver got out with their life — but it’s a good thing they did!

Green’s car went out of control and crashed near the finish line. Green was treated and released at the scene. Kritzky’s dragster also went out of control and crashed near the finish line. Kritzky was alert and conscious following the incident and treated at North Memorial Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for further evaluation.
