This past weekend was the third event of the 2018 NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing series at Gainesville, FL. During the quarterfinals of elimination on Sunday, Robert Height lined up again Matt Hagan in the Top Fuel Funny Car class. During their 1000 foot drag race at over 300mph both cars suffered major engine trouble which in turn caused the bodies of both funny cars to explode form the concussion of the explosion. Both cars simultaneously at the top end of the track lost their funny car bodies 100 feet into the air.
