Here’s what happens when a drag racer’s chutes don’t work

A drag racer named Mike Bowman had his parachutes fail as he tried to stop during a qualifying heat on Saturday.

His car had topped 255-miles-per-hour, but when the chutes were released, they got tangled up.

His brakes slowed him down, but not nearly enough.

Fortunately, Mike was unhurt.
