During an episode for “Jay Leno’s Garage,” the 66-year-old was strapped in and wearing a helmet when the modified Plymouth Barracuda he was riding in went out of control.

A camera inside of the car captured everything.


“Twenty-five hundred horsepower on two wheels — what could go wrong?” Leno told the camera. “This has been on my bucket list since I was a kid, ever since it stood up in 1965. The Hemi Under Glass has been the king of the wheelstanders at dragstrips all across the country.”

“And now nearly 50 years later, he’s the only 80-year-old guy who can regularly get it up — you know, on two wheels.”

Leno seemed to be in good condition after the wreck.
