Carrie Jo Neal Dies In Bizarre Accident - July 25, 1997

 July 25, 1997
Carrie Jo Neal
In a bizarre accident, Neal's car shot forward at the end of performing her burnout, reaching a speed of 200 MPH when she crashed. Some thought it might have been caused by a stuck throttle, but others weren't convinced. What is puzzling is why she didn't hit the kill switch, flip the fuel shut-off switch, or deploy the parachute. Although she was a beginner in the sport, she was well prepared. No consensus or satisfactory explanation for the cause of the crash was reached although NHRA claimed it was a stuck throttle. She lived in Poway, California, and was a computer software tester.
