This is what is left after Jr.'s Corvette hit cinder blocks left on the drag strip.  Jr. was traveling in excess of 200 M.P.H.  The car flipped end over end.  Click on image to see a larger version of this picture.

After the Crash

Here is Tom Thompson holding his dad's hand just after the crash.  Jr. was still unconscious at this point and they were trying to get him to respond.  The roll cage definitely saved his life.  Click on image to see a larger version of this picture.
