Ok? Then let’s proceed. The following is what happens when a pair of cows play chicken with a truck going over 100 mph. You can imagine it doesn’t end well.

Last week was the Parker 425, an off-road race for trophy-class trucks held in the Arizona desert outside of Parker, reports Christian Sourapas and teammate John Tondro were in the #91 Terrible Herbst truck racing along at 112 mph when two cows ran onto the course from the right side.

“Before I could even react, we [were] smashing into both of them sending us into a shock and veering the truck to the left,” Sourapas told the Race-Dezert forums. “Blood and guts everywhere. I knew it was gonna be a day-ender, but as I was thinking that, the truck caught, and we started tumbling.”

The 360 Video posted on YouTube by Sourapas Motorsports shows there was absolutely no time to react as the cows ran out. Mercifully, it was a quick end to the cows, but the windshield looked like a crime scene as the truck launches off the course and begins tumbling.

“As we were crashing, all I was thinking about was when this was gonna stop,” said Sourapas. “We were in the air for a while, and I was praying to God that this wasn’t it. I was afraid that JT or I wasn’t going to make it. It was scary because I never had thought I had a chance of dying until this moment.”

Both Sourapas and Tondro survived, banged up but not injured. The truck and cows, not so much.
