What's the most amazing close call ever?

Sometimes it's just not your day — and that's a good thing. Just two more feet, just one second earlier, just one block over and the fates might have claimed another vic. What's the most amazing close call ever?

We're going with Tanner Foust's near-oops during a rehearsal for his Hot Wheels-sponsored truck jump at the Indy 500. Just a minor speed miscalculation and Foust came within feet of faceplanting that trophy truck right onto the tarmac, to certain major injury — at least. Nope. Wasn't his day, that day.

I nominate Robert Kubica's crash in the Montreal GP in 2007. If you were watching the crash was horrible and I thought he was gone or at least injured but he basically got up and just walked away. I think he ended with a twisted ankle or something (Edit comment)
