Former Tonight Show Host and comedian, Jay Leno can laugh about it now but his recent crash riding inside the 2,500-horsepower Hemi Under Glass was no joke.
“This is bucket list for me,” the comedian says in a preview for the upcoming premiere of Jay Leno’s Garage, where Leno sits in the passenger seat while renowned drag racer Bob Riggle pilots the vehicle at the Irwindale Speedway in California. That was before the accident though.
Both men were unharmed, but the same can’t be said for the car, which rolled over multiple times. In the clip, Leno cracks a joke when the paramedic comes to inspect them. “That was certainly exciting,” he tells the camera after exiting the Hemi. He adds, “Stuff to do when you’re 80, we’ll call this.”
Jay Leno’s Garage premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on CNBC. Watch video of the crash in the video above.
