Watch: This 3,500hp Chevy Camaro takes flight on the drag strip
"I believe I can flyyyy"
When signing up to be a drag race driver, you swear an oath. You don't really, but if you did it would be due to how dangerous the sport can be.
To prove just how frightening it can be, take a look at this bright red Chevrolet Camaro take flight while zooming down the tarmac. The car was being driven by Tim Slavens at the Georgia Motorsports Park’s Lights Out 12 drag racing event on Wednesday.
The car in question is a 1969 Chevy Camaro which is said to produce around 3,500 hp from a fully built V8 engine with two 102mm turbochargers according to Autobahn. Therefore it's no surprise when you see this thing take-off as it reaches almost 200mph on the strip.
Thankfully, nobody was injured in this event and Slavens is already racing again in the same car. This just shows how fearless racing drivers are.
