Professional performance driver Arnold Korbmacher plows a 58,000-pound sand truck into the runaway truck arrestor on Teton Pass at 60 mph to test the system on July 13, 2021.

The Catchnet system was re-engineered after it failed to stop a pickup hauling a load of logs almost two years ago, and WYDOT and the manufacturer wanted to confirm its efficacy.
