Bad day for this driver, because he cannot continue driving with only three wheels left on the Fox Body Mustang. Maybe it’s some kind of karma doing the payback thing, because this happened only to this driver, and we love that it is caught on a video.
One can only guess the reason why the wheel flew off the car, into the side of the track. But sure we can make some wild guesses there. It could be a bad job done by the garage team, if they didn’t fit the rim properly on the head, it will be a little bit on the side and when all the power comes to it, there is no way to avoid the worst thing happening there.
Other thing can be that the bolts were loose on the rim, and when he started the race, because of the torque, they got cut off. These theories could be right, because it is human error that played part in this disaster, and we can imagine how mad the driver will be when he sees the garage guys. It is a shame really to end the race in this way, but it is what it is.
