Brittany Force crashed big time in Pomona on Sunday

NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series racer Brittany Force escaped serious injury after a racing incident in the first round of eliminations at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. A CT Scan was negative and the MRI showed subtle findings likely from previous injuries.

Her Monster Energy Dragster shot sideways over the center line and hit both guard walls at about 150 miles per hour during her race against Terry Haddock.

"You look at how these cars evolved over 40-50 years", John Force said.

According to team representatives, she was responsive, speaking with medical personnel, and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. "We made a lot of changes after the loss of Eric (Medlen, former JFR driver killed in a 2007 testing accident). Building better chassis, safer". Force's dragster, running in the right lane, lost traction and struck the opposing retaining wall before ricocheting back across the racetrack and hitting her own guardrail.
