1) Z06 with that kind of spray (probably capable of low elevens or high tens) NHRA doesnt require fire supression? Apparantly not a cage either?
2) It took 40 seconds for the dudes standing 10ft away to run over with a fire extingusher? The guy running staging didnt have one there ready and waiting? Every time I been to the track they had at least one big ass one right there at the line in between lanes.
3) Why didnt the cars owner have a fire extinguisher in the car at the LEAST?
I guess if you run without safety equipment you pay the price...
I didnt look at the vid but i am guessing this is the same yellow zo6 that had the nitrous blow the motor and melt the engine bay at great lakes dragaway last saturday. what a shame a very nice car but the driver was just lucky to not get hurt. did you actually see the guy looking around for a extingusher? i know i wouldnt wanna run up tp a burning car that has nitrous on it.
Pretty sure insurance wont cover a fire because of your modifying the car while using it at the track. If it does, PM me and let know what insurance company that is I know a guy who went through that whole fiasco while road racing the car burnt up. I think because it was technically a "school" the insurance had to cover it but they gave him shit and took FOREVER to take care of it while they "investigated".
I called my insurance and asked about this. What they said is if the aftermarket equipment was at fault then they cover it under the aftermarket parts coverage I added to my policy which in my case is $5000 max
