Kerhulas' meeting with the NHRA's ill conceived aircraft style arresting nets caused a closed head injury which ended his career. As Kerhulas' head was thrust forward from the quick slowdown the metal cables from the top of the net rebounded and hit him in the helmet at a very high speed.
He was a second round winner in the race.
This was Doug's last race as noted in National Dragster Magazine, cutting short a rising career. He recovered fully from his injuries.
