Talk about an "OH, SH*T!" moment...

That'll buff right out.

I think there was another "off the side" moment by another driver.. in fact, there has to be.. because the video I saw was from the left of the camera guy.. to his right.. and the driver went off the road on the left side, through a guardrail I believe. He didn't have any significant injuries either. It looked scary as heck too.

(my gf's friend sent her the video the other day--I live in Colorado Springs, where the race is held)

Had to be a fake.
There was no fiery explosion at the end.

That'll be an interesting Carfax.

I have to appreciate that the crowd cheers. It would kind of suck to get booed after tearing up your car like that.

Try THAT on your motorcycle and come back to tell me you don't need any rollcage.

Take the guy who welded that cage out on the town and get him laid bigtime.

Thats what I do for a living. I've gotten some late night calls where friends and family of a big crash victim want to blow me. I just tell them I weld the cages like my kids are going to be in them.

The lesson here kids is never underestimate the benefits of a good roll cage and a four point harness.

Better than when I saw this clip on CBSnews where they had their logo over it at the beginning while the talking heads ran their yip.

Why did you do that?

TFA withheld the video, substituting in its place an admonishment to upgrade my Flash version.

(hopefully that's the same crash as in TFA? If not, my apologies.)

The term co-driver strikes me as funny. I think they should just call him the passenger. Even if he will be taking over later. Co-driver makes it sound like hes got his own steering wheel

The on-board audio revealed:

Co-driver: 5th gear left, rapid descent, 5 barrel rolls, shiat pants.
Driver: Roger that

That would be silly.

The co-driver works the pedals.
