WATCH: 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 hit 255-miles-per-hour, but when the chutes were released, they got tangled.

His brakes slowed him down, but not nearly enough. The car barreled into a sand trap and giant net at  the end of the track.
