Any time you strap yourself into a race car (or truck, or kart, or... well, anything), you know there's a chance of crashing. And when it's a stadium truck you're piloting, if you don't come perilously close to crashing on every single lap, you're probably not in a position to win.

Just ask Robby Gordon, who recently found himself on fewer than four wheels during a race in Las Vegas. Gordon – no stranger to the 'rolling is racing' mantra – rather fortuitously manages a textbook rollover restart, however, and the vehicular acrobatics are embedded down below for your viewing pleasure.

And for all you budding racers out there, remember: Keep the rubber side down, it gives you a much better shot at winning...

      A video from the outside would have been much better.

      I guess that's how he rolls.

      Wish they could've showed the exterior angle on the rollover and then do the slo-mo cut to the interior view.

      Why couldn't they use the angle that they started the video with? Would have been a lot better than showing Gordon's face. The racing looks very fun to watch though, like a full size version of the dirt courses I made when I was a kid with my matchbox cars (better in dirt than hot wheels because had "shocks").

        I, too preferred the suspension of Matchbox cars to Hot Wheels - not just in the sandbox, but also on the bedspread and on my electric train table.
