Leno and drag racer Bob Riggle were in a 2,500-horsepower Barracuda race car when Riggle intentionally popped up on the rear two wheels before it flipped over.

Riggle was driving. Leno was in the passenger seat. Both were strapped in and wearing helmets.

The car rolled over multiple times and both men were not hurt in the crash.

Leno said that the car ride, before the accident, was on his bucket list, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Riggle said that it was only the second crash he'd had since he started driving the powerful car.

The ride was being filmed at the Irwindale Speedway in California for Leno's new show "Jay Leno's Garage."
