Australian drag racer Steve Reed says he will continue to compete after surviving a horror crash during an event near Brisbane.

Reed was doing almost 325 kilometres an hour when the engine exploded and his car burst into flames.

He told 2GB radio today he is now working on coming back for the next race.

We live and breathe the sport, Mr Reed said.

Weve got the equipment there and hopefully we can get things back together again, whether its that car or another car, and keep going.
