We've showed you some pretty spectacular bumper-dragging, fender-crunching, frame-smashing wheelstands before, but this latest one takes the cake as perhaps the most impressive ever. The feat was performed by Jere Etheridge in his twin-turbo 2000 Ford Mustang, who was competing at the "Lights Out 4″ drag race at the South Georgia Motorsports Park this past weekend. The run seemed to start smooth enough, with Etheridge launching cleanly off the line. Partially down the track, however, the nose starts to lift. For a brief second the front tires come back to the pavement, but they quickly bounce back up into a full-blown wheelstand. Amazingly, with the front tires off the ground, the Mustang generates enough lift to get all four tires up into the air. At this point most people are thinking that the run probably won't end well, but somehow the Mustang manages to land back on all four wheels, albeit in the opposing lane. Thankfully no one is hurt, and it looks like Etheridge's Mustang will live to see another drag race.

Michael Fournier (Wed, 06 Mar 2013 08:43:53 -0800): umm maybe the next time these guys build a Car with that much power they will include Wheely bars in the Parts List.
Andy Talamantez (Wed, 06 Mar 2013 09:04:52 -0800): I'm sure his life flashed before his eyes! I would be kissing my back end goodbye!

Michael Fournier (Thu, 07 Mar 2013 16:52:04 -0800): what stupid idiot made those rules this car and I am sure others in the class if running that kind of HP and the tires to put it to the ground but without the safty added by wheely bars? I do not know what class this is but everyone is VERY VERY lucky it was just a great show it could very well have ended very badly so if they are to ban wheely bars they need to reevaluate the other rules in this class as obviously the cars running it it have enough power and modifications to need them for the drivers safty.
Derrick Taylor (Mon, 11 Mar 2013 15:58:16 -0700): Now that's when you know you have "just enough" horsepower! (y)

Steven Mayfield (Sat, 30 Mar 2013 10:07:09 -0700): Glad he didn't roll. His bumper will probably need some touchup paint.
