Hinson Motorsports Corvette Z06 crash – Click above for high-res image gallery

Hinson Motorsports was on its way to breaking another speed record this weekend at the Texas Mile when its twin-turbo Corvette Z06 took an off-track excursion. The combination of speed and grass didn't go over well, and the 'Vette turned over once before landing back on its wheels.

Thankfully, the driver walked away from the wreck, a testament to the Texas Mile's strict safety standards, and the strength of Hinson's Corvette. With the driver OK, Hinson Motorsports is focusing on coming back stronger than ever with a new car.

I love all the comments bashing the camera guy for just standing there. What was he supposed to do? :laughing:

Any word on what happened to cause this? Tire failure seems most likely to me, but impossible to tell with that video. Glad the driver's ok!

That is truly a testament to the safety equipment in that car...and the luck that it didnt flip over more than once. Man talk about a wild ass ride!
