Top Alcohol Funny Car champ Doug Gordon emerges unhurt from round one accident

Doug Gordon, the 2020 NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car world champ, walked away unhurt from a frightening accident during the opening round of eliminations at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. Following a narrow loss to Shane Westerfield, Gordon’s Beta Motorcycles Camaro made a hard left turn just after the finish line and made contact with the retaining wall. Gordon quickly exited the car under his own power and was evaluated onsite by NHRA medical personnel.
