NASCAR Driver Tries Gaming Trick

Have you ever played a driving game and thought to yourself, "I could totally be a NASCAR driver!"? Us too, but sorry to tell you, you can't transfer video game skills into the real world even if you are a NASCAR driver.

Driver Carl Edwards learned this lesson the hard way. He tried a trick he'd learned in the video game world in an actual race and ended up nabbing second place. He was behind Jimmie Johnson in the last lap of the race and made an incredible move to skirt around him, knowing that he would hit the far wall, but believing it would be enough to still take the race.

"I planned on hitting the wall, but I didn't plan on the wall slowing me down that much," Edwards said. "In video games, you can just run into the wall and run it wide open. That's what I did, but it didn't quite work out the same as the video game."

Edwards came in second, but earned a place in racing history. Check it out below. (It totally would have worked in a video game, BTW.)
