Jay Leno Was Damn Lucky To Walk Away From This Nasty Wreck

Video

At least he crossed something off his bucket list.

Being able to control 2,500 hp while flying on just two wheels isn’t exactly easy to do. Not even Jay Leno would be willing to give it a shot. Being a passenger can be just as much fun. That’s why Leno jumped at the chance to go for a ride along with legendary stunt driver Bob Riggle. The guy is 80 years old and is still performing fearless stunts, just like he did years ago with the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Barracuda. Leno grew up idolizing this guy and now gets to join him for a two-wheel horsepower explosion. Only there wasn’t an explosion. That’s the good part.

Bad part is that, well, Riggle did something he’s only one other time in the past 50 years: had an accident while running this car. Fortunately both walked away but that’s really only because safety equipment has come such a long way. Check out this flip fest in the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
