A horrific crash at the Willow Springs Raceway in California was all captured on camera when enthusiast Peter Tryce lost control of his Cobra while driving at 130 MPH. Amazingly Tryce survived and was not seriously injured.

In the video, Tryce recounts his thoughts leading up to and during the accident.

"What was that? Something didn't feel right. The car just got real loose for a second, then seemed OK," he explains.

"Then, with no warning, the car veers hard right, just before the Brake Zone on the fastest part of the track. Something breaks in the front suspension or steering. At 130+ miles it's time to start praying. And I did."

As the car comes to a rest, Tryce recounts the one thought going through his mind: " I am thanking God that I am alive right now."

The crash left a trail of debris 500 feet long and utterly destroyed the car.
