Tanner Foust sets world record distance jump in Hot Wheels stunt
Maybe I was irreparably scarred by my youth watching Dukes of Hazzard, but jumping cars is just about the coolest thing a person can do. Unfortunately, cars don't magically repair themselves like the Dodge Chargers did on the show.
But not all cars are used like handi-wipes when filming stunt jumps. Case in point: the Team Hot Wheels truck at the hands of Tanner Foust at this weekend's Indy 500. Descending a 10-story ramp into a runway before flying up a ramp, the "Yellow Driver" flew an incredible 332 feet, rotating slightly in the air, yet landing in a more or less controlled slide into a gravel trap.
The whole setup was made to look like a Hot Wheels track, of course, and wowed the fans with the world record-setting feat. Check out the video below if you missed it.
