BY Samuel Reiman • December 14, 2016

Editor’s note: On weekdays from Dec. 1 to Dec. 16, FOX Sports will be counting down the 12 wildest rides of 2016.

Cruz Pedregon defeated Robert Hight in the opening round of final eliminations during the NHRA Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas in October.

The Funny Car driver ran a 4.244 ET to turn on the win light, and he did it... on two wheels.

Unfortunately for Pedregon, although he and the car were able to come to a safe stop, the chassis was bent due to the incident and he was unable to start the second round.

No. 5: Insane flip at Oulton Park
No. 6: Sidnei Frigo’s Pro Mod flip
No. 7: Christopher Bell’s Daytona flip
No. 8: Jason Anderson gets hit in the head
No. 9: Josef Newgarden goes head-first into wall
No. 10: Aussie Racing Cars barrel-roll
No. 11: “The Big One” at Bowman Gray
No. 12: Rally car rolls through crowd of spectators
