This was already posted here. I'll save everyone the trouble: it didnt blow off his hand or go through his forearm, it "simply" blew his glove off.

Still, having seen it before & knowing what was about to happen, I was still shaken.

Agreed - drag racing just takes the spirit out of the sportbike I think. But to each is own

... and it wasn't the piston, it was the spark plug.

Well that makes more sense... I was wondering how a piston had enough force to rip apart the connecting rod, pierce a 3-5in cast aluminum head, break 2 steel camshafts, possibly tear a hole in the frame, go thru the gas tank, and hit the guys arm. Even if it did carry enough speed to do that much damage (And I would guess it would be measured at percent of the speed of light), wouldnt the aluminum piston completely self destruct in the impact?
