His co-driver stopped counting at five rolls. No one is sure how many times Ken Block rolled his rally car, but this massive crash is how he ended his Rally America season, and his shot at winning the championship.

How did the wreck happen? Well, thoushalthoonthyrallyetires points out this was a 100 mile an hour, sixth gear turn and Block slid into the ditch, clipped the embankment, and went flying. Block admits that he didn't mark the tightening corner correctly in his pace notes.

Unbelievably, Block was perfectly ok and his codriver Alex Gelsomino made it out with only a minor concussion.
