and also, was she concerned about what might have been deposited onto the racetrack? unless PS was the last run of the day?
I didn't see an explanation on either broadcast (NHRATV or Fox), so give it some time and I'm sure Elite will let out what it was. After looking at the video again, she was ahead of Aaron (lifted due to shake), so her foot was planted to the floor regardless. Thankfully she's ok

To be fair, it's apples and oranges. One's a PS driver, the other a fuel FC shoe. More importantly, she was driving through a fogbank created by a mechanical issue. Pat created fogbanks during burnouts.

That's cool. You're right, I went the other way. Once again I'm guilty of living in the 60s,70s.
I need help. I can't get that 60s and 70s drag racing needle out of my arm.

Update 6/21/22 My girl friend Kathy told me she could help me with my addiction to 60s and 70s drag racing.
Told me, put this in my syringe N2H4 (Hydrazine) might have used a little to much. Now I'm more addicted
than ever before to 60s and 70s drag racing!

It broke a wrist pin, but was still running and she didn't see Aaron so she kept her foot in it. Until she couldn't see.... LoL

And it left nothing on the track, they fired up the Funny Cars without delay.

I figured it was a piston. Been there done that myself.

You took my comment completely out of context. There was no comparison whatso ever between the two drivers

Oh crap, two guilty verdict's in 24 hours. Send lawyers, guns and money, dad, get me out of this, ha
Another thing, I'm guilty of (And Proud of It) I saw the "Chi-Town Hustler" with Pat Minick in the seat!
And a big thank you to the late Warren Zevon, for a great album (January, 1978) song's and lyrics.

Just a guess but I'm thinking she was more concerned about deposits from pieces of a 1500hp race car slamming into another 1500hp race car - or one of the walls - as they were traveling roughly 150mph under power when the world in front of her disappeared into a cloud of oil-filled smoke, completely blinding her.

Not the first time she's saved an out of control race car - and herself - due to mechanical failure.
