The video is all over Fox Network News. They are going to interview Musi tomorrow morning.
Did you show her your drifting video? A bit more for you two to bond over.
The Old: Stock 5.7 Bottom End | Lead Foot | 11.861 @ 112.76 1.63 60'
The New: Forged Arrington 6.1 | MMPG Top End | Paramount Drivetrain | 11.67
So after seeing countless articles about "The drag racer that crashed in to the camera," finally there's one that mentions there was someone behind the camera...
Lizzy Musi Appears On FOX News To Discuss Bristol Accident - DragzineThe video of her accident, which was filmed by ADRL videographer Grinner Hester and nearly took Hester himself out in the melee, was released on the web on Saturday and is quickly nearing one million views on YouTube. In addition, it was shown on Yahoo!, Fox News, USA Today, and countless other media sources. This comes just a week after the media latched onto the ESPN footage of Matt Hagan’s explosion in Charlotte last weekend.
LOL - probably little consolation after nearly sh!tting yourself in the national spotlight, but getting your name in print is pretty cool just the same!

Grinner- you need to practice your "dive and roll" technique! That looked like a bad face-plant when you cleared the barrier... You okay?
Yeah- I'm sure scoring a "6.0" on the landing wasn't the first thing you were thinking of right about then...
