Rolling to a Crash at Baja 500

Today we get a first hand look at what it's like to "roll" to a crash in the dangerous off road race known as the Baja 500.

In case you've missed out, this week we are dedicating this video blog to the notoriously dangerous off road race known as the Baja 500. But it's a much different scenario to be watching a vehicle take a tumble than it is to be actually IN the vehicle as it skids, crashes or turns over. Here we get a first hand look from inside a trophy truck racing in the 2008 Baja 500 as it somehow goes from booking through the desert to all of a sudden turning over and rolling to a crashing halt. If you aren't a believer by now, you will probably be after seeing this.
