Race car driver Jeremy Foley and his co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov had their frightening crash caught on camera at the 90th anniversary of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Though their Mitsubishi Evolution 8 rolled approximately 12 times off the sharp turn known as the Devil's Playground, the two remarkably escaped with only minor injuries.

The video above, from the point of view of Foley's vehicle camera, shows Foley racing uphill until he loses control of his car and begins his epic tumble. His last words just as the car begins its first roll down hill and just before the camera goes dark: "Oh shit!"

The Devil's Playground is infamous for bad crashes, just last year Bobby Regester crashed on the same curve in the road (watch that crash and more from Pikes Peak International Hill Climb below).

The "Race to the Clouds" is billed as the second oldest motor sports race in the country. The 12.4 mile course involves 156 windy mountain turns to the summit of 14,110-foot Pikes Peak.
