Watch a NASCAR racer drift its way out of a massive crash

Brad Keselowski lights up the rears, avoiding an uncomfortable trip into the wall

Ordinarily, Formula Drift is the home of high-speed sideways action, though last weekend NASCAR gave it a run for its money, largely thanks to Brad Keselowski.

During practice for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway, he got a little loose, setting up one of the best bits of NASCAR action since the last time they all crashed into each other.

Approaching Turn Four, Brad’s No. 2 Ford Fusion ran wide and high up the banking into an area of low grip. Cue a huge swing sideways, seemingly towards the wall, which Jones caught admirably before holding – intentionally or not – one of the quickest, most outlandish drifts we’ve seen in a long time. And we work with Chris Harris. He did tap the wall, but in drifting, that’s extra clipping points. 

Brad, TG salutes you for your smokey save. Keep it lit, son.
