Watch the video of the scary incident in Tulsa, Oklahoma
The Tulsa Shootout is currently underway in Oklahoma. The week-long indoor dirt race hosts Outlaw karts on the bullring oval just ahead of the famed Chili Bowl Nationals.
Watch the Tulsa flagman video below.
In most racing events, the flagman sits in a metal box above the catchfence. However, at select events or tracks across the country they still do it the old school way, feet on the ground.
Terry Mattox is the long-time flagman for the Tulsa Shootout as well as the Chili Bowl Nationals. In the feature events, he can be seen running onto the racing surface with the checkered flag, adding to the dramatics.
