Wouldn't of mattered if he was impaired or not. When that motor blew that was it.

The mix on a funny car is almost 90% Nitromethane to 10% Methanol.

I still can't believe that he would be drinking ahead of time. Alcohol slows your reaction time, and you need every hundredth of a second off of a tree.

Surreal...

Could breathing the fuel in contribute to the higher BAC?

Surely anyone can not be serious about alcohol being a factor. Watch the youtube clips of the accident taken from the grandstands and listen to the explosion and then the crash at the end. Alcohol had zero to do with Scotty passing away

could of been mouth wash,

I'm sure it was a blood test,what does it take to get to .02, I don't think its much,Mouth wash,


Hopefully the crash will make if safer for all racers in the future,kinda like what they did after Earnhadt's crashed.
