NHRA Funny Car racers John Force and JR Todd are okay following their nasty qualifying collision Saturday during the Lucas Oil Winternationals at Southern California’s In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstrip.

Force’s Peak Chevy Camaro got out of shape in the right lane and past the finish stripe crossed the center line into Todd’s lane, behind him. He came up on Todd’s left, then crossed in front of Todd. Their parachutes became entangled, and Todd was dragged to his right as Force’s car plowed into the right-side wall.
