Perhaps im wrong but it seems to me like the guy running the sled is in a pretty dangerous area in the second pic?

I guess about any place on the track could be considered dangerous. These guys know what they're doing. I think everyone should be required to make their sled chain unhook as easily as this one does. 98% of the pullers don't even have to back up for the "hooker" to unhook. This sled unhooks as easily as Cale Mahnke's does.

It may look like he can get hit. But you can"t see the main sled rails to his right. They have a small chain tied to the top of the hook, and when you spin-out and then clutch it. He will snap the hook right of your tractor before you know it. No reason most of the time to back up. Why they make a lot of hooks. I love to hear J P"s 820 pull, it is capiable of putting it"s self in the winner"s circle. Vic
