BUDDS CREEK MD - SUMMIT FastNews - Top Sportsman driver Al Williams, Youngstown, Ohio, was uninjured when his '57 Chevrolet Bel Air replica went out of control during the first qualifying session for the ExpressAutoParts.com President's Cup Nationals at Maryland International Raceway.

Williams' nitrous oxide-assisted car veered to the left as he left the starting line, crossing the track centerline. As Williams fought to regain control, the car turned back to the right, tipped up on the leftside tires, then teetered there until it hit the right side guard wall almost head-on. The impact tore the front bodywork from the car and tipped the car the rest of the way onto its left side, where it slid almost to the 1,000-foot marker, spinning slowly to a stop. Williams emerged from the car after the slow-motion sequence of events, uninjured. The same cannot be said for his race car.
