The J-turn is one of the coolest stunts that doesn’t require a PhD in stunt driving. Also known as a “Rockford Turn” since James Garner’s famous character, Jim Rockford, didn’t know how to make a normal u-turn. The guys at Team O’Neil Rally School do what they do best and show us how to flawlessly perform a 180 in the dirt after pulling up to a situation that necessitates a hasty exit.

With just a little bit of practice, you too can be busting J-turns like your favorite action hero in no time. Just find a big, empty gravel parking lot…

Lift, turn, shift and burn.
