Jay Leno Thanks Wounded Warrior with Gift of Brand New Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

His reaction is priceless.

If you’re feeling blue, here’s something that will cheer you up. After visiting troops in Afghanistan last year, treating them to a spot of stand up, Jay Leno felt compelled to acknowledge their good work. So he teamed up with Dodge to give a brand-new Challenger SRT Hellcat to a wounded warrior. Picked at random, essentially from a hat of names, was Cpl. Ethan Leberge, who was injured after a suicide bomber blew himself up while the soldier was out on foot patrol.

Under the auspices of a meet-and-greet, Leno takes the corporal for a spin in the 707-hp Hellcat before throwing him the keys saying “America loves you. Don’t get any tickets.” Without a moment’s hesitation the honest soldier retorts: “I can’t promise that.” And who could blame him.
