Funny Car Steering Wheel Breaks During Race (VIDEO)

We've never done any drag racing ourselves, but we're pretty sure you need a functioning steering wheel in order to do it. Perhaps this funny car driver's pit crew is new. That said, if your steering wheel is going to break off during a race, probably better that it happens right at the beginning when you're going a paltry 80 mph rather than a few seconds later when you're at 280.
