Video: Onboard For Danny Sheridan’s Flip at Calistoga Speedway

Non-Wing sprint cars are an unpredictable beast to get around a dirt track.  Drivers throw their machines into the corner lap after lap and hope that they make it through to the straight.  They can bicycle and get up on two wheels with no warning and when that happens its usually about a 50-50 chance that the car isn’t coming back down on four wheels.

This was the situation that Danny Sheridan ran into at Calistoga Speedway in California as his sprint car starts to bicycle.  He sort of gathers it back up only to jump the cushion and make contact with the wall which sent his machine on a violent series of flips. 

Luckily, Danny emerged from the wreckage without injury thanks to the proper safety equipment.  Check out the awesome HD video from our friends at Loudpedal Production, of the incident and see what it’s like to flip a sprint car.
