Looks like it would not have taken much more to put the 42 over the wall.

Watching that sequence again reveals the 18 took a straight shot into the outside wall on that wreck as well.

Several guys lucky to have walked away from that one. The safety movement in the car design is manifesting itself with these drivers walking away after these direct impact crashes.

That Larson move reminded me of a Jeff Gordon crash in a similar inside wall a few years before he retired. Luck to walk away.

Yes Mel...several more seconds of Larson floating up like that would have put him over the wall, thru the fencing and into the infield spectator. Nascar is probably evaluating that one very closely I bet.
