Video: 3-Wide Racing Leads To One Of The Biggest Wrecks This Year

Our friends at The Dirt Racing Connection always seem to capture some of the best highlights from the Midwest. We’ve brought you some of their videos before, but they may of captured the biggest street stock crash of the year.

At the 2012 season championships at Florence Speedway things got very serious during the A-main of the Pure Stock division when Sean Thomas, Dustin Nobbe, and Ken Richards all made contact while running three wide and started a serious crash in front of the field.

Thomas and Nobbe both flipped violently before coming to rest. Many drivers had no where to go and piled in to the accident.

It’s tough to say who actually started the violent collision, we just attribute it to the fact that it was the last race of the year for the track and no one was willing to give an inch.

All drivers walked away from the accident unharmed. Watch the video above and then let us know if you think there was more intentional then just a racing deal by leaving us a comment below.
