Larry Dixon is the one airborne in this frightening video as his Top Fuel dragster apparently snapped in half somewhere near 300 MPH during the Gatornationals in Florida. He somehow walked away from this accident.

Drag racing is not easy, but it's a good deal more difficult when none of your tires touch the pavement (see Doug Kalitta is demonstrating the proper way to do it). At last check, it sounds like Dixon was being taken to the hospital to get checked out but didn't demonstrate any serious injuries.
