Initial Breach

During a qualifying run at Lake Havasu this last Saturday, top fuel hydro "Spirit of Texas" appeared to lose a head gasket which causes a subsequent fireball in the frames that follow this one.  (The pilot Scotty Lumbert is just fine, BTW.)  This shot is from the moment the pressure, oil, and spark, initially breach the engine in a dirty, oily ball of fire.
