Drag racer Matt Hagan escapes unscathed from fireball car


Drag racer Matt Hagan was incredibly able to walk away from the remains of his car after it exploded into flames during a qualifying race in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday.

Debris from the car's body was scattered across the track but far from appreciating his lucky escape, Hagan appeared angry at losing the race.

Picking up a piece of the wreckage the driver slammed it down in frustration as he exited the race track.
