Youtheory Racing’s No. 55 truck sent a wheel flying across a desert when their truck landed nose-first into the dirt while trying to qualify for the Pahrump Nugget 250 Best in the Desert race. No one was hurt, but it just looks like a ridiculous trucksplosion.

They’re just going along, flying easily through the desert, and then FOOM! That’s all it takes: one bad landing.

The duo inside, Matt Haney and Anthony Terzo, were both fine, the team confirmed via Instagram. The onboard footage certainly looks like it’ll be a sore week for these guys, though.

At least one photographer along the course, John Tuba, said he had to get up and start running from the flying tire.

That won’t buff out.
