I have to admit, I’ve never been in an airborne car crash. Not counting Grand Theft Auto, of course. It’s just one of those things I’ve never gotten to experience. Which, you know, is probably for the best. But, when I saw the insane footage of Pro Mazda Championship racer Harrison Scott’s ridiculous high-flying crash over the weekend, I was shocked that 1) he made it out of his car in one piece and 2) he was cleared (and willing) to race the very next day.

Just look at it for yourself, and tell me this isn’t one of the craziest crashes you’ve ever witnessed.

As Jalopnik points out, Scott was alongside competitor Antonio Serravalle coming into a turn when they each initiated contact, causing Scott’s car to go catapulting through the air in what looked like a movie stunt gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Later that Saturday, Scott took to Twitter to assure his concerned fans and followers that he was somehow good to race the very next day following his off-the-wall wreck.

Good for Scott for getting back on the horse for Sunday’s race, but damn, if he didn’t have some terrible luck this past weekend, because he ended up running into problems on Sunday as well, having to bow out again after the first lap following a suspension failure. Apparently one day wasn’t enough to fix the damage done to his car.


The next race for Scott, who is currently ranked sixth in the Pro Mazda standings, is two weekends from now at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Here’s hoping he has much better luck over that race weekend.
