Here is one other thing for Buck Showalter to think about in his lineup construction, as Eduardo Escobar gave a...
Holy Bible Deuteronomy 5:33
You shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess. Psalms 91:16 – With long life will I satisfy you, and show you my salvation Amen🍀
Sad day. 😢
Sounds like his rear tire blew…
A SHOCKWAVE THROUGH US.
Neal started something really special with Shockwave. Him, his family and crew brought a lot of joy to my family and many others over the years. The heartbreak of all of us fans there that day can not be expressed properly. It's a funny thing to be nothing more than a fan. Yet feel such a loss. It must be the smiles of the family and the eye contact they always gave. Chris walked along the fence that morning. He had a joy in his step and beamed a smile. I know for a fact he had know idea who I was. But when I pointed him out to my grandson. He nodded, smiled and gave a little wave, like old friends would.
I can't imagine the families pain. I hope they take solace in knowing so many of us who's lives have been blessed by Neal, his family and his crew. Morn with them that so great of loss that Chris is to everyone.
Chris went out at 300 mph with his tail on fire. I just wonder if he had to go, that wouldn't be his choice if given one?
( But way to early.)
He will be missed as much as he was appreciated.
Sincere prayers from all of us to the Darnell family.
Very sorry for his family. Rest in God’s arms.
No matter how old or rural everyone enjoys a death-defying or death-causing stunt.
Stock tires are rated for 70mph. Not sure what tires he had.
the parachute deployed before the tire explosion
They should have continued the show. In my humble opinion that's what any performer would want.
Wasn't Shockley the original driver/owner ?
This is a sad situation because I got to see his father do this when I was younger with the very first Shockwave
Search for troubles…found it. What else to say…
If you replay one of these videos from a different angle you can see in slow motion that before he went through the fireball the rear end gave out causing his truck to go to the right and started rolling very fast throwing debris everywhere.
I hear his 10 yr old son was with him:(
Play with fire and you're going to get burned. Why not have a AI drive it? ♨ Love in the name of Jesus. Folks don't leave home without the savior for we don't know when the Lord will allow us our next breath. Are you saved? by the blood of Jesus?
I have known of this jet truck and driver for many years. My sincerest prayers and condolences to his family and friends. What a horrible way to go. God bless you all, and remember that although too soon, he was doing what he loved, which is what many of us will not be able to say.
Love to hear the thunder when he meets up with Jim Franklin.
Feel for the family but you would have to think this would happen sooner or later going that fast with that much power.
Monumental…. wow. That was Will Darnells grandson I heard.
R.I.P. Mr.Chris Darnell..My,prayers and condolences goes out to his family and friends..
R.I.P I have seen this man perfom what a loss live fast die yong.
Wait i see the explosion before the truck crashes
But I have to use my seatbelt. Makes sense
This was hard to watch I've seen Chris do runs before my condolences to the family
These run at NHRA races every year, the fastest motorsport in the world, it's also the most dangerous. Sad another racer killed. I seen him and Bob Motz at Norwalk Raceway Park early 2000s
It seems the truck exploded into flames just before the pyrothechnics
this is so sad. rip. 🙁
Play stupid games win stupid prizes.
TWO Darnell sons died😒 The youngest one as well
As chances de erros são de 300 para uma mas quando acontece uma é uma vez só é Fatal se os americanos são tudo loucos para adrenalina esse pessoal é maluco porque o cara fez ele já sabia que isso podia acontecer com ele ele não fez por caso não pensado é trágico a gente lamenta pela família e pela pessoa também é claro
Trucks are designed to carry goods. It's not a plane or a rocket. It can be too hard to control. Chris was not invincible after all.
Rest in Peace. He lost his life doing something that he loved and something that has brought joy to so many over the years. Condolences from UK.
How long ago did he pass
I did not even know that they even had big trucks that go 300 mph?
The really amazing part is they've never had a accident like this ever. The thousands of safe runs theyve made in that truck show how professional and dialed in the crew is. Any vehicle weighing 10,000 lbs going over 300 mph is on the verge of disaster every time. God speed.
What a horrible thing! I've always loved the "Shockwave" Trucks.
