Pikes Peak has always intrigued me. It looks like more fun than anyone should have in a car but it also seemed to me that danger was a huge factor. This video convinces me I never want to do Pikes Peak.
Jeremy Foley and his co-driver went off the road at a location known as Devils Playground. That alone should be a warning.
The accident is spectacular and one that appears unsurvivable. However, both were taken to the hospital with none life-threatening injuries.
I am certain this has more to do with the race cars construction than any safety rails on the track. NASCAR makes a big deal, as they should, out of the safer barriers at their tracks and the folks with Pikes Peak can’t even install a guardrail to help prevent this kind of potential disaster.
