2016 Shelby GT 350 goes up in Flames at 120 MPH

I'd say that was some quick thinking on his part to get the car off track and come to a halt safely. I know plenty of people who would have panicked and wound up in the barrier past turn one. Roebling is a wonderful track to gain confidence. Fast and flowy with very little technical sections. You come out of turn 9 pushing over 3 digits and launch down the straight. I used to see 172 mph regularly on my old track bike at the 5 marker prior to turn 1. He is really lucky the car didn't have the catastrophic failure further down the strait.
