There was a lot of bad news coming from NASCAR over the weekend, so much of what else was going on got lost in the mix. Like when Xavier Coupal did a series of barrel rolls at the NASCAR Canadian Tire (or is it Canadian Tyre? I dunno, Canada) race this weekend at Trois-Rivières.

The announcer seems to count three spins, but I'm counting four, leaving Coupal's car an exposed, skeletal wreck. You might actually say that the bodywork did its job here, absorbing the energy from all the impact, as Coupal managed to escape without injury, according to Le Journal de Québec.

But it's still looks pretty crazy, nonetheless.
