Check out Rides on TLC (Jay Leno takes GT around track)

Jay Leno is taking his Carrera GT around Talledega. Freakin' sweet. It should be on tonight again. Tivo rocks!

Holy Crap, Jay just spun out at 195 mph and missed the wall! I never thought I would see him shook up....but he looked like he was about to puke. I swear I thought I saw his giant chin quiver.

On again at 2am EST... a Tivo special. Caught the end of it. That 550 Spyder replica sure looks sweet.

Closed course speed record in the Carrera GT. Think it averaged 196mph at Talledega.
