Click above to watch video after the jump

In the video after the jump, a sports announcer describes this double front flip performed by Champion Off Road Racing driver Rick Huseman in his Fabtech Racing Toyota Tundra as "... one of the most spectacular things in all of motorsports." That's quite a lofty description, but we think the video doesn't disappoint. Remember, Rhys Millen attempted to intentionally backflip a truck on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. Huseman not only does what Millen failed to do, but he did it twice... and forwards... and stuck the landing. Follow the jump to see for yourself.

      Rich, instead of watching the video, read the text. Nobody ever said it was a backflip. Says Millen tried a double backflip but this guy did it only forward.

        The tags say backflip, i think that's what he's talking about

      Um, CORR is basically a defunct series now, so this has to be way old. Also, front flips and back flips happen ALL THE TIME in racing... this is WAY different than what Rhys was attempting... apples and oranges. I'm not impressed with this as we see it all the time.

      Try to purposely do it and I'll consider it impressive.

      He probably experienced 1000 Gs when the truck hit the bump

      And then 100 more when he landed

      I used to be in a pit crew for CORR team a while back. It was a BLAST! (Though scary for our driver a bunch of times). Best part was camping and hanging out with the other teams. I sure do miss it.

      Whatever you do not go to the Rick Huseman Racing website. It pops up as spyware by AVG. Also check this out: http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/367/RipOff0367071.htm
      Apparently this Huseman guy is a douche.

      Nice flip though. Just wish he unbuckled his harness first.
