WATCH: Drag Racer hits barrier at 350kmh

IT WAS six seconds of terror where Sidnei Frigo's life flashed before his eyes.

But amazingly the Brazilian drag racer escaped with just a badly broken arm after this spectacular 350kmh crash during the National Hot Rod Association Spring Nationals in Texas.

Blasting out of the starting blocks in his Corvette, the 44-year-old was in trouble moments later when the car veered toward the centre of the track before spearing into a guard rail and launching into the air.

The car came to rest on its roof in a grass section separating spectators from the track.
