I hated to hear what happened to him, as a matter of fact it ruined my day, our prayers are with Eric, his family, and John Force Racing.

Last thing I heard or read is that they think a tire blew. Not a 100% sure until tests are concluded.

Edit: Last thing I heard or read is that they don't know if the tire blew.

Very sad news. I love NHRA and the fact that these guys make the time to talk and interact with the fans.

The fact that his dad was right there wrenching his car and must have seen the wreck is also very very sad.

NHRA has lost too many drivers over the past years. I hope this is the last.
