This crash occurred at a Nov. 10 meet of the El Mirage 200 MPH club, when driver Brian Gillespie lost control of his car at speeds somewhere between 180 and 190 MPH. Gillespie was airlifted to the hospital, but was largely and remarkably unharmed.
The vehicle's safety equipment worked exactly as planned. Gillespie suffered a collapsed lung and some cuts and bruises, an amazingly short laundry list for someone who just rolled his car a billion times. He was released from the hospital a week after his crash.
