      He was fine, as fine as can be for sitting in a fireball for a few seconds. He was a little mellower on the interview after that run, but he came back to his old self at the end.

      It didn't look too bad as it was aired at speed, but the replay was an eye opener.

        totally engulfed going 200, pulls the chute n keeps her straight, gets out and asks for marshmellows. Now I'd be ok with him hanging balls off his tow hitch.:rofl:

                  I betting it don't help! Seriously, if the fire is intense enough to boil the brake fluid, you won't have any brakes.

                    They either have a backup car in the trailer, or all the parts to rebuild it.

                    I'll bet the panic adernalin laced arm actuating that lever makes up for any brake loss!!!

                      John had so many explosions back in the 90's this is just a minor inconvenience... He can still back up his big mouth with driving ability...

                        I remember a few years ago, at the winternationals in pomona, when he was still sponsred by Ford, and both his daughters (or was it three?) were racing. I think John had a total of nine tractor trailer rigs.
                        I dont think pulling another car out will be a problem.
