    Have not seen it posted here yet - crazy video footage. Really shows how unforgiving speed can be and all it takes is one mistak. Looks like the driver turned in too fast after having the rear end bounce on him - someone smarter than me please embed https://youtu.be/LabX19ocJZA

    Watching that car roll broke my heart but Jay's response to the track safety guy is awesome. He is a class act.

    Looked like Jay didn't have his belts full tight. I bet that shoulder was banged up pretty bad. I was never a big Leno fan, but his show is fantastic and no one can doubt his love of cars.

    I'm disappointed that Jay didn't say "Watch This!" first.

    I bet Jay is glad he pulled his arm inside the ride before it started flipping. It would have mashed it pretty good.

    That was a violent roll over(s), but glad they were both okay. Definitely a testament to modern safety equipment. Yeah, good that Jay pulled in his arms because that would have been bad if his arm flailed out the window. They'll now do a new body and continue on. Awesome that Riggles is still doing wheel-stand demos in his '80s.

    Jay is definitely a class act. Awesome to see a celebrity of his level not be selfish, the first words out of his mouth were are you okay. Wouldn't be surprised he if offered to pay for the replacement.

    I have to admit i laughed pretty good, but only because i knew they made it out fine.

    Crazy wreck. Rear end suspension looked really soft combined with underinflated rear tires and a bumpy track. Glad they are both OK.

    The crash footage would make a great thread derail gif!

    If the motor was in the front it would have made that turn. Driver error. End of story.
