    talk about crazy timing... any farther to either side and it would have flipped the car... instead, he hit it dead center and it just acted like a ramp... that's NUTS!

    Reason Number 1 I support a new Trans-Am style series using near stock cars.

    I would love to see sedans/coupes from all over the world compete on the same track in different classes knowing that the shit engineered there would be on the street in a few years and that I could do it myself if I wanted to.

    Wow. Seriously, what are the chances of that happening? That wheel supported the entire weight of that car without falling over.

    That's amazing just from a physics point of view.
