It’s not something we have ever pondered too seriously, but if you have ever wondered why wheelie bars exist then just watch the video below. Courtesy of the aptly named Urban Hillbilly Videos, the clip stars Shock Therapy Racing’s Terry Hatfield, who was testing an electric golf car dragster’s new battery pack at the Ozark Raceway Park. After a couple of successful runs, Terry Hatfield somehow managed to flip over backwards, proving that wheelie bars are a necessity. Fortunately, the driver walked away unharmed and was more than happy to lap up the applause from the appreciative crowd.
Whoa.. that was a crazy video. Now check out this next one!
