Dave’s 2015 crash explored
A sport as exhilarating as illegal street racing doesn’t come without its risks and back in 2015, Daddy Dave, had a near-fatal crash in his car, Goliath.
His car: “catapulted off the track and somersaulted at least six times“, as per ABC News.
Dave suffered a serious concussion, a bruised lung and many bumps and bruises from the crash.
Motor Trend reported that: “one of the nitrous bottles came free of its mount and shot out the side window of the car, propelled by a nearly full charge of the escaping gas. The bottle struck Dave in the head on its way out the window. His helmet most likely saved his life, and to this day, Dave has no memory of the crash. In fact, has no recollection of the few hours prior to the crash.“
The crash occurred at a no-prep race at Amarillo Dragway in Texas.
In 2021, Dave also suffered another crash, this time into a wall, but he walked away without any injuries, thankfully.
