Boat racer hits ejector seat

The Augusta (Ga.) Southern Nationals is a thrilling event that left many people with chills Sunday.

Kansas drag boat racer Kent Price managed to eject moments before his boat split in half at speeds of more than 160 miles per hour.

Fellow racers say Kent took a similar spill back in September.

"And he was back by November or so," said John. "This ain't going to stop him ... I don't believe."
